Ellie Goulding has made a shock move following the breakdown of her marriage.

The pop star recently confirmed her split from her art dealer husband after photos emerged of her kissing her surfing instructor.

Goulding, who married Caspar in 2019, was seen in the arms of hunky Armando Perez after the pair emerged from the water earlier this year. Taking to Instagram, she announced her marriage to Caspar, 32, had ended but claimed they have remained on good terms.

However, mere weeks after announcing the bombshell news on Instagram, Goulding has now taken it upon herself to delete the platform entirely.

When any of her 14 million followers try and access the star’s page, it’s now listed as “unavailable”.

“Where has Ellie gone?” questioned one fan on Twitter, while a second fan tweeted: “Why has Ellie deleted her Instagram all of a sudden?”.

In February, the singer finally broke her silence for the first time regarding rumours of her split.

She told fans: “In light of recent stories, I feel I have been left with no choice but to let you all know that Caspar and I privately separated some time ago. We remain the closest of friends and have been successfully co-parenting with our son’s best interests at heart. We are committed to protecting our family privacy and thank people in advance for respecting our wishes – we won’t becommenting further.”

Goulding’s ex, a Harvard and Oxford educated art dealer, also confirmed they had separated and were focusing on raising their young son Arthur.

He penned: “Hi people – hope you’re having a good day.

“I feel (sadly) that I need to say something on mine and Ellie’s current relationship. that I hope more than anything will make any final tabloid speculation disappear.

“Ellie and I made the decision to separate some time ago.

“Our immediate family and close friends have known for some time – otherwise we chose to do what we could to keep this private.

“Ellie and I remain the closest of friends and, most importantly, ‘co-parents to the best kiddo in the world, Arthur.

“This is the last I want to say on this and please ask that you respect mine and Ellie’s privacy. Thanks a lot Caspar.”

Shortly after her marital difficulties emerged last year, Ellie struck up a close friendship with ex-Tory MP and life peer Zac Goldsmith.

The pair were seen together in London last autumn after apparently bonding over their passion for climate issues.

But in September The Sun revealed how Ellie had cut ties with Zac in a bid to give her marriage to her husband one final chance.

However, sadly for the pair things didn’t end up working in their favour.
