Ellie Goulding got married today and one of the many famous faces rumoured to be on the guest list is multi-award-winning singer Ed Sheeran.

If Ed does show up at the Yorkshire ‘do, this will be yet more proof that songstress Ellie and the Thinking Out Loud hit maker have well and truly put the past behind them.

Ellie and Ed are rumoured to have dated in 2013, when a photo of them holding hands at an awards ceremony was published.

Fans then theorised that their brief romance came to an abrupt end when Ellie cheated on Ed with One Direction’s Niall Horan.

This eyebrow-raising rumour comes from an Ed Sheeran song called Don’t in which the flame-haired star sings about a famous ex who makes money in ‘the same way’ Ed does (a.k.a a fellow singer) that subsequently cheated on him with a friend, explaining how she ‘ended up physically involved with a friend in the same hotel we were staying in, while I was downstairs.’

In an interview with Billboard magazine Ed insisted that the lyrics in the song are ‘100 per cent’ based on what actually happened to him: ‘The story in Don’t is 100 per cent true. I could have gotten nastier — there was more s*** that I didn’t put in,’ he said. Woah.

What happened between Ellie Goulding and Ed Sheeran?

So, what actually happened between Ellie and Ed and is there any way that his song could be about her?

Well, in 2015, Ellie stated that while she did date Niall, she was never in a relationship with Ed: ‘I did go on a few dates with Niall, but I was never in a relationship with Ed,’ she told Elle magazine.

‘I have absolutely no idea where that came from and why it was turned into such a big thing.’

End of story, right? Wrong.

Ed himself implied something a little different when he addressed the photo of he and Ellie holding hands at the MTV VMAs in 2013 and said: ‘I mean, normal people don’t hold hands if they’re just friends,’ during an interview with US radio show Clock 98.9.

So, the jury is still out on that one.

Is Don’t about Ellie Goulding and Niall Horan?

With it unconfirmed whether or not Ellie and Ed were romantically linked at any point, it’s difficult to say for sure, but fans certainly think that Don’t is about Ellie hooking up with Niall.

When asked by Dan Wootton at The Sun who the song was about Ed said: ‘I don’t feel it’s about anyone any more, I’m not attached to that. The moment you attach someone to a song it becomes more difficult to sing every night.’

However, in October 2015, Fuse posted an interview with Ed in which the singer implies that the theories and rumours about his number 1 hit being about Ellie and Niall could be true – even though he doesn’t want to ever confirm it outright.

‘Don’t’ is just a song that’s close to the bone and definitely opened up a door that I probably shouldn’t have opened up,’ Ed admitted.

‘I just won’t say who it’s about because… I mean everyone, everyone f***ing knows anyway. But like I just won’t say who it’s about cause it’s quite a negative song.’

If the song was about Niall, then he and Ed have certainly put the past behind them and moved on since.

In an interview with The Sun Ed revealed: ‘I got over the anger the moment I wrote the song. That’s the end of it. I’m grateful I could get a song out of it, to be honest.’

Then, in 2015, Ed was pictured partying with Niall and Louis from One Direction at Taylor Swift’s Billboard after party – so there’s seemingly no Bad Blood there.
