Where is she from?
Ellie lives in south London and regularly shares snaps around the capital at fashionable haunts such as The Ned and Columbia Road Flower Market to her 805 Instagram followers.
What does she do?
The glamorous girlfriend is a barristers’ clerk in London and began her career in the profession in 2017.
Ellie describes herself as “highly-motivated and confident” on her LinkedIn account with a “strong work ethic and positive attitude”.
The beauty is also followed by Piers Morgan's son Spencer on her Instagram account.
Ellie also has a link to the Instagram account, London Young Professionals, in her bio which has named Dr Alex as a mental health champion following his appointment by Prime Minister Boris Johnson as the Mental Health Ambassador.
The couple have recently been co-ordinating Instagram posts with Ellie also sharing a series of snaps from their staycation in the Forest of Dean in Gloucestershire where the pair enjoyed a romantic treehouse break.
Alex also shared a set of snaps from the idyllic treehouse trip, captioned: “With everything that has happened over the last year or so, one of my goals moving forward is to have as many experiences in life as possible.”
A source close to the couple revealed to MailOnline that Ellie has been a huge support to Alex after his 19 year old brother Llŷr tragically took his own life in July last year.
It comes after Alex recently opened up on how he went on a restricted diet and exercised "excessively" for five months before going on Love Island in 2018.
Speaking on Fearne Cotton’s Happy Place podcast, the reality star explained that he cut out "everything" besides "basic components that would make me lean and lose weight."
