IF ELLIE GOULDING never sold another record she could still put her feet up, light a fat cigar and feel very proud of what she has achieved.
Less than four years ago she was picking up the Brits Critics Choice gong as her single Starry Eyed went soaring up the charts.
Since then she has notched up a jaw-dropping ten million single sales – shifting a staggering three million albums on the way.
Impressive, and deserving of far more than the bit of glass and wood that I presented her with on Monday night – as impressive as it is.
The Lights singer celebrated with her record label Polydor and pals with champagne and cocktails at her pal EXAMPLE and LIAM GALLAGHER’s favourite restaurant, Red House, off the King’s Road in Chelsea.
After a few sherries, there was a discussion about how high a pile of ten million singles and three million albums would be if they were stacked up on top of each other.
