Ellie Goulding hates pizza because it makes her feel like she has “eaten a blanket”.

The 27-year-old singer took to Twitter to tell fans how much she detests the doughy treat.

But Ellie acknowledged that her hatred of the Italian meal is more than a little unusual.

“Am I the only person in the world that detests pizza?” she tweeted. “Makes me feel like I've eaten a blanket.”

“Does anyone want to fight about it?” Ellie later added.

The star’s celebrity pal Pete Wentz was quick to respond to her comment, tweeting her: “@elliegoulding yes. Seeing this broke my pizza loving heart.”

However, fitness fan and gym bunny Ellie did reveal that she won’t say no to certain calorific foods.

“Love Pringles though. And nachos. Cool story bro (sic)”, she added.

Ellie previously revealed she was struggling to stick to her vegan diet due to a particularly strong dairy craving.

"I went vegan a few months ago. I feel leaner and healthier, but I miss cheese. A cheese plate with fruit is my weakness!" she told Us Weekly magazine.

Ellie balances her vegan diet with an intense exercise regime, which sees her workout on a daily basis.

In an interview with Self Magazine earlier this year the young songstress admitted she enjoys how her body feels after a yoga class, insisting she doesn’t understand why more people aren’t into the stretching exercise.

"I get the biggest high when I do yoga. People don't realise that there's such an incredible drug in life that doesn't involve any substances,” she said.
