Ellie Goulding halts concert to break up fight

Ellie Goulding broke up a fight during a concert on Tuesday night.

The blonde singer was on stage at the Eden Project in Cornwall when she halted her performance of 'Anything Can Happen' to stop a squabble between a group of girls.

According to Digital Spy, she initially said: "Girls, what's up? That song is meant to be happiness, not fights ... No drink throwing.

"It's not nice. It's really annoying and it's bloody sticky."

One of the girls tried to answer back, but Ellie quickly responded with a quick put-down to entertain the fans.

"We've all got stories, doesn't mean you have to tell them." she added.

She did show some support to the girls when the rest of the crowd started "booing" and jeering them.

She told the audience: "Stop boos. Booing isn't nice."

However, Ellie - who is dating McBusted bassist Dougie Poynter - took it all in her stride and made reference to the "laddish" audience later on in the show after performance some of her biggest hits.

"It's quite a laddish crowd tonight, fights breaking out, drinks spilling." she joked.

The incident definitely didn't stop the star from enjoying her night, as she posted these pictures to her social media accounts claiming “last night was awesome”.

How 'gracious' of you Ellie!
