‘I honestly don’t know anything about it because my best friend has planned it,’ she said.

‘I’ve been busy so I haven’t really participated in the planning whatsoever, but I was on Jonathan Ross the other day and he made me draw something. I knew he would because I mentioned that I really don’t like life drawing, I just don’t like drawing.

‘That part of me was never given to me, drawing. It was c***, absolute c***. As long as I don’t have to do that on my hen do I’ll be fine.’

Ellie, who announced her engagement to Caspar in August last year, also discussed saying ‘good riddance’ to New York after she moved to the ‘insane’ city ‘for love’.

The songstress said: ‘I was like good riddance because New York is insane and it’s really not for the faint-hearted to live there, it’s just bonkers. 

‘It’s just such an overload of noise and crazy people, amazing restaurants.’

The blonde beauty explained that she initially moved to New York to be with her partner who worked in the city, otherwise the pair ‘just wouldn’t see each other’.

She said: ‘My partner, he works there. He studied there and then works there. Yes, I did it for love, but he’s moving back.

‘I basically just had to pack everything up and just move there. Otherwise we just wouldn’t see each other ever which is rubbish.’
