Back together but looking glum in the sun… Ellie Goulding and husband pictured after her split from Zac Goldsmith

Singer Ellie Goulding may be back with her husband… but neither of them appears to look particularly happy about it.

The pop star recently reconciled with art dealer Caspar Jopling after she called off her increasingly close friendship with Tory peer Zac Goldsmith.

But as our exclusive picture shows, the newly reunited couple looked glum as they walked – some distance apart – through West London.

They opted not to hold hands, and neither were wearing their wedding rings.

Ms Goulding, 36, dressed down in a casual shirt and trousers for the walk with Caspar, 31, who carried a scooter and a helmet belonging to their son Arthur, two.

The distance between them was in contrast to when Ms Goulding was seen walking close to Lord Goldsmith, 48, near his £3 million mansion in West London last month.

The pair had developed a relationship over their shared passion for tackling climate change and they grew close following the breakdown of Lord Goldsmith’s marriage to his second wife, Alice Rothschild, after ten tears.

The friendship had been described as an unlikely one as Lord Goldsmith is the Eton-educated son of late billionaire financier Sir James Goldsmith, while Ms Goulding grew up on a council estate in Herefordshire.

They first met at the COP26 climate change conference in Glasgow in November 2021.

Seven months later they were spotted enjoying a lunch together at upmarket cafe The Garden in Covent Garden and were later seen at The Wolseley restaurant in Mayfair.

In October last year they were at the same party at the exclusive London members’ club 5 Hertford Street and just weeks later they were reunited for the next climate change summit, COP27, in Egypt.

But the Daily Mail revealed last week that Ms Goulding had chosen to stop spending time with Zac to focus on saving her marriage. 

Ms Goulding married Mr Jopling in August 2019 at York Minster with A-list guests including Sienna Miller, Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry.
