She recently took part in the star-studded charity single, Times Like These, which made it to number one in the UK charts.
And on Friday night, Ellie Goulding, 33, joked that she’s been ‘unable to escape her husband’ as she admitted that she’s found the last week in lockdown ‘particularly tough’ because of a foot injury, and revealed she’s teaching herself to play piano.
The singer appeared on James Corden’s The Late Late Show, where she discussed life self-isolating with husband Caspar Jopling in their Oxfordshire home, before performing her track Worry About Me.
Ellie told the show’s host: ‘This last week’s been quite tough because I’ve hurt my foot.
‘My “thing” is going out running – I can listen to music, I can listen to a podcast, and I can escape my husband – and I haven’t been able to do that, so this last week’s been particularly tough.
Looking on the bright side, the Love Me Like You Do songstress said: ‘But it means I actually have to work. It means I have no excuse.’
The singer explained how she’s been focusing on making new music. ‘I’ve been playing guitar a lot more.
‘My fingers have got those guitar fingers again where they get really callous-y. And I’ve been teaching myself piano, so I’ve literally got no excuse but to write music.’
Discussing her upcoming album, Ellie explained: ‘The album’s got two sides to it.
‘The first side is entirely written by me and I play most of the instruments and I produced it and did everything.
‘The second half is kind of… the best way to describe it is like an alter ego where I’ve released all the songs that have ended up on the radio and the songs that I’ve written with other people, and perhaps not as serious and not quite as heartfelt, but still my songs.
‘I have to separate them because it’s just not the same.’
Earlier in the week, Ellie prepared to perform on Jimmy Kimmel Live! from the comfort of her own toilet seat at home as she shared a gorgeous snap on Monday.
The Starry Eyed singer took to Instagram to the post the picture of herself posing in her bathroom, which she captioned: ‘Performing something special for @jimmykimmellive. Tune in for a one night only special from my bathroom x.’
Many stars have been forced into being creative with their performances due to the current lockdown amid the global coronavirus pandemic.
Jimmy Kimmel is currently hosting his late night talk show at home and uploading videos to his YouTube channel. No doubt Ellie decided to perform in her bathroom due to the acoustics and humidity.
As well as her toilet seat snap, Ellie shared one of her wedding photos to her Instagram Story with the talk show host hilariously photoshopped in her husband Caspar Jopling’s place.
She wrote: ‘Tune in’ with a laughing face emoji over the funny photo.
Last month, the singer looked typically radiant as she sported a slogan top emblazoned with ‘BLESS THE NHS’ and a hand symbol in recognition of the Clap For Our Carers campaign.
Thanking healthcare professionals for steering the fight against COVID-19, the songstress captioned the post: ‘We thank you for everything you do, now and always #nhsheroes @blanksfactory.’ [sic]
Blonde beauty Ellie recently revealed how her addiction to exercise took over her life.
She previously felt that she had to go to the gym everyday and would miss out on going to the studio or skip writing sessions to workout.
The artist revealed it was her former Olympic rower husband who helped her overcome her addiction as she took a step back from touring.
‘I don’t consider myself to have an addictive personality but I felt as though I did at one point have a gym addiction that was just not fun, I felt I had to go to the gym every single day,’ she told The Sun.
‘I don’t know whether it was a survival thing, because touring was so tiring, so hard, really taxing on your body and your mental health.
‘I felt as though it was a survival instinct to be working out all the time, making sure I was super fit, super healthy and tried to counteract having drinks on tour and perhaps not eating very well.’
