Radio 1 DJ is not bitter over break up

By On

Greg James has insisted that he will play ex-girlfriend Ellie Goulding’s new material with rumoured lover Skillrex, as it would be "embarrassing" if he didn’t.

The Radio 1 DJ, who broke up with the ‘Starry Eyed’ singer at the end of last year, admitted that although it was weird playing her music he would have to be “professional about it.” It was announced last month that Ellie was dating the producer after working with him in the US.

The 26 year-old told The Sun: "It won't be a problem for me to play his music. Wouldn't that be embarrassing if I didn't?”

"If I was there saying 'Good afternoon listeners. We will not be playing Skrillex... ever!'”

The DJ confessed that his relationship with the singer broke down because of their busy lives and admits that they were in “different worlds” by the end of their romance.

He went on: "We had an amazing time. It was a genuine connection and not something of convenience. We drifted apart because we're doing similar things but in different worlds.

"We're still friends. In fact, if we were both librarians we'd probably be together for ever."

 Despite Ellie moving on quickly, Greg admitted that he is happy to be single and is enjoying playing the field.

He added: "I have been a serial boyfriend for several years. Because this year is so potentially massive for me it's nice to be single and selfish.

"I'm not on the prowl but it's nice to go on dates and meet new people. It's alien to me but it's nice."
