The pair, who have been splitting their time between London and New York since getting together in early 2017, revealed news of their upcoming nuptials with an official announcement which reads: “Mr CWF Joplin and Miss EJ Goulding.

"The engagement is announced between Caspar, son of The Hon Nicholas Joplin of Yorkshire and Mrs Jayne Warde-Aldam of Yorkshire, and Elena, daughter of Mr Arthur Goulding of Hertfordshire and Mrs Tracey Sumner of West Midlands.”

Ellie, 31, who is rumoured to have previously dated Prince Harry, met old Etonian Caspar, 25, now an art dealer, in Mayfair, London.

I am very happy but I do realise you need some darkness to draw on to create the best music.

Well-to-do Caspar previously rowed for Team GB at the Youth Olympics in 2010 but Ellie has been quick to quash the rumour that he considers himself a professional athlete.

Discussing such talk the songstress said: “People keep saying Caspar is a Team GB rower – it has kind of got out of hand now but we find it really funny. He is most definitely an art dealer.”

And despite being loved-up with her husband-to-be Ellie, who was previously in a relationship with McFly guitarist Dougie Poynter, reckons she can keep delivering heartfelt music ahead of her fourth studio album.

“I am very happy but I do realise you need some darkness to draw on to create the best music.”

TELLY presenter KIRSTIE ALLSOP has defended famous friend DAVINA McCALL after photos of the ex-Big Brother host, looking particularly trim, caused somewhat of a storm on social media.

No stranger to a selfie or six the 50-year-old has recently flashed the flesh in a series of bikini snaps, with some prompting concern over her weight.

But Location, Location, Location star Kirstie has hit back at Davina’s critics, saying: “She eats incredibly well and exercises. The vast majority of us, me included, weigh more than we should.”

The property expert, 46, added: “I’m surprised when people say Davina is too skinny. She is lean and we are not supposed to be like hippos, retaining weight. We’re not whales.”

Quite.

HAVING earned a No 1 album and a BRIT award it would appear Bastille now feel they’re too posh to pee with their peers after they requested their own personal toilet when headlining the Neverworld Festival in Kent at the weekend.

The London-based band, whose debut album Bad Blood went to the top of the charts in 2013 leading to a 2014 BRIT Award for Best Breakthrough Act, had their very own private portable loo, with photographic evidence provided by our girl propping up the cider tent.

Equally amusing was the fact that other artists and crew seemingly ignored the sign and were using it anyway.

One even commented that hardly anybody knows what Bastille look like anyway! Harsh but fair.

DAME Joan Collins has been forced to postpone her UK tour, due to start next month, until next year after revealing her American Horror Story commitments have prompted the change.

Speaking about the rescheduling of Joan Collins Unscripted, the 85-year-old wrote on Facebook: “Due to my commitment to American Horror Story we have had to postpone the UK tour until February. I always love touring the UK and am always grateful to everyone who comes to see my shows, which makes this all the harder.”

Dame Joan will appear as in the eighth series of the US drama, which is co-written by Gwyneth Paltrow’s boyfriend Brad Falchuk, and began filming in June.

It will also feature the likes of Kathy Bates and Julia Roberts’ niece Emma.

Apologising to fans she added: “I hope you will be able to re-book and come see me so I can tell you many new stories about my latest projects.”

A WOMAN in the US almost ended up paying for multimillionaire Keith Urban’s shopping after mistaking the singer for somebody who’d fallen on hard times.

Good Samaritan Ruth Reed, pictured with Keith, initially had no idea she had spotted Nicole Kidman’s other half in a queue and was about to help him out.

“For three years I have made a resolution once a week to treat someone,” says Ruth.

“This man was short of a few dollars. I jumped in and said I’d pay and explained why. He thanked me and asked my name.”

Only then did Ruth realise that she was about to pay for the country music star, who’s worth an estimated £58million, adding: “I asked him his name and he told me it was Keith. I said that he did look like Keith Urban. He said he was. It was then I realised what an idiot I was.”
