Ellie Goulding's unexpected collaboration

Singer Ellie Goulding says she only wrote for Diana Vickers because her friend asked her too.
Great deals on musical instruments

Ellie Goulding has said that she "unexpectedly" wrote songs for Diana Vickers before she sprung to fame earlier this year.

The 'Starry-Eyed' singer - who won this year's Critics' Choice BRIT award – was rumoured to have worked with Diana Vickers before either girls had released a chart topping single.

Ellie told Q magazine: "Last year I worked with her before I signed my record deal because producer Guy Sigsworth is a friend of mine. He was like, 'yeah I'm working with that 'X Factor' girl Diana Vickers, do you wanna come down?' So I said, yeah why not?' I unexpectedly wrote some songs for her album. "

When the blonde star was asked what she thought of 'The X Factor' contestant she replied: "Well me excluded, she's had some really amazing writers. They're trying to make her massive I think. But then I don't know. I don't think I'm going to write for anyone again. I've decided it's not for me. Saying that, I might but it wouldn't be like that. I'd write with someone."

In the past Ellie has also written with pop star Gabriella Cilmi.
