Ellie Goulding says Bruno Mars is "romantic" and has "swag".

The British singer is currently supporting the popstar on the North America leg of The Moonshine Jungle Tour.

Bruno is known for sultry love songs such as Locked out of Heaven and Just the Way You Are and Ellie claims his personality matches his suave exterior.

"He's got swag, he's very cool; he's very romantic," she gushed to Australian radio hosts Kyle and Jackie O.

"Myself and my friend Lauren, we just keep describing it as sexual. It's just very sexual.

"[Would I go there?] Um... I don't know what to say! I'll think about it, definitely."

Ellie, 26, is currently believed to be in a relationship with UK actor Jeremy Irvine, but was coy when asked about her beau.

In the past she has been linked to One Direction star Niall Horan thanks to flirtatious Twitter messages, but Ellie insists she is just pals with the 20-year-old singer.

"Um, he's just a good friend, you know! He's lovely, lovely," she said.

Today it was announced Britain's Duchess of Cambridge has gone into labour with her first child with husband Prince William.

Ellie sang at the royal couple's wedding in 2011 and revealed she's "excited" about the impending new arrival.

"That's probably the best moment of my life, actually," she recalled when asked about the pair approaching her to perform.

"It came about because they are big fans. They were very sweet and said, 'Any chance you could do this?' and we were like, 'Um... yeah!' They stayed in touch for a bit, they sent me some lovely letters; they're just really, really nice people."
