Oh, and she might have used a litter tray belonging to Kings Of Leon.

The A-list, they might be impeccably glamorous - but they're just like us. They get stomach bugs too, even when they're performing in front of thousands of people. Never Mind The Buzzcocks is back, and in the latest episode, singer Ellie Goulding recalled the time she had a dodgy stomach at Coachella. And well, the story might put you off food for a bit - so sorry about that.

Ellie told the panel - which included host Greg Davies, singers Yungblud and Tom Grennan that she had to wear shorts which 'included a zip all the way around so I could just run off…' Greg asked Ellie if it was a 'poo trap door', to which she replied: 'Fine, I had a poo trap door.'

However, we regret to inform you that the story lets a little bit more queazy, (come on, this is Never Mind The Buzzcocks) as she said that another act - she thinks it was Kings of Leon - who had a litter tray, which they used, in their dressing room. The popstar said: 'It just so happened a band, I think it was Kings of Leon, I can't remember - they had a cat litter which they used to pee in with other humans.'

And, sorry, but it gets even worse, as Ellie smirked when Greg asked if she'd used the human litter tray.

Well, if this story has taught us anything - we're no longer envious of VIP areas at music festivals. Poo trap door shorts? Human litter trays? We'll pass.

Airing on Sky Max, the revamped Never Mind The Buzzcocks (which stopped airing on the BBC in 2015) features Noel Fielding and Daisy May Cooper. In last week's debut episode, Little Mix singer Jade Thirlwall threw shade at Noel Gallagher, after he had previously said in an interview that Little Mix 'weren't in the same league as Oasis' after the girl group won the Best Group award at this year's Brits. 'He said something about we were undeserving of the Brit award because we don't, well he thinks we don't write music, but we do write music,' she said. 'Shame really as we are definitely the most successful girl group in the country but he's not even the most successful performer in his family.' Ouch.
