Ex’s And Oh’s hitmaker Elle, 29, split from Glaswegian retail exec Andrew Ferguson, 33, last year after 15 months of marriage. 

Elle releases her as-yet-untitled second album in October, with the break-up inspiring some of its songs. 

Elle, who released new single Shame this week, told me: “He has heard the new songs. One song in particular, I wanted him to hear it from me first.

“Afterwards, he said: ‘That’s rough! Good song, though.’ We just want the best for each other. 

“He texted me congratulations when Shame came out. 

“We’re not as unhealthy as we used to be – and that’s good.” 

Elle admitted she wrote songs after rows with Andrew, saying: “Sometimes, I’d be fighting with my family and with what I was going through. I’d be yelling on the phone and as soon as I hung up I’d start writing. 

“It’s important to say I’m just singing from my personal experience. I wouldn’t want anyone to think I’m generalising.” 

The uplifting Shame shows Elle’s defiant side after the split. She added: “I’ve always been a bad influence on my friends. 

“I’m not malicious but I have a deeper wilder side than most people. 

“I went through a lot last year, and Shame is me trying to put a fun spin on being bad, having fun and hanging out with the wrong kids.”
