British pop star Ellie Goulding fears her hectic work schedule is putting a strain on her blossoming romance with Dougie Poynter.
The Burn hitmaker has been dating the McFly star since last year (13), but they were recently plagued by split rumours.
The couple put the gossip behind them, and Goulding now admits balancing the love affair with an international tour has been a struggle.
She tells Britain's Self magazine, "I've definitely met someone. You get to know someone who makes you very happy and then you go away on tour, right when it was just getting somewhere awesome. It's not fun, but we can make it work. Love is beyond everything, beyond the universe."
