Pop star Ellie Goulding appealed to people to help break the "stigma" of homelessness as she volunteered at a centre for vulnerable women over Christmas.

The Love Me Like You Do singer spread some Christmas cheer at the Marylebone Project in central London, of which she became patron last week.

She was spending Christmas Eve at the charity's base, spending time talking with the women who use its services.

She also brought Christmas gifts of essential items.

Goulding said she had decided to get involved with homelessness after realising the situation "visually seemed to be getting worse", citing problems including the rising cost of housing and cuts to charity funding.
