Ellie Goulding Reveals Her Scary Near-Death Experience

Ellie Goulding had a terrifying near-death experience during a recent trip to Norway.

The 29-year-old revealed her brush with disaster on Instagram yesterday, sharing a photo of an all-terrain vehicle she’d been travelling in sinking into a frozen lake. Scary stuff.

In the post, Ellie explained that the ice underneath the car had cracked, leaving her and her photographer Conor McDonnell minutes away from going under.

She captioned the image: ‘Throwback to a few weeks ago when myself and @conormcdphoto nearly ended up in a lake in -30… Note to self don’t drive a BV206 over a frozen lake.’

Understandably, this left fans pretty concerned. One commented: ‘Thank the Lord you’re okay,’ while another said: ‘I’m glad you are ok.’

Conor left a lengthier description of his and Ellie’s ordeal on his page, writing alongside the same image: ‘So me and @elliegoulding weren’t going to post about this but we decided that it’s too mad of a story not to tell [sic].

‘This photo is from when we were in Norway a few weeks ago.

‘That moment when you’re in -25 in the middle of nowhere in Norway in the pitch black and your belt wagon crashes through the ice in the middle of a lake and you have to emergency evacuate through the roof.

‘”Oh s*** we’re in” was my first though. Second was to take photos. We were in the front cabin. That is pretty much under water in this photo. A few minutes later it was all completely gone under the water and ice for good.’

Crikey. Conor is on the road with Ellie to photograph her on her European tour, which will come to a close in London at the end of March.

Let’s just hope they manage to stay safe for the rest of their trip.
