In 2003, a then 15 year-old Poynter auditioned for and subsequently became the bass player for the English band Mc Fly.
The band consists of Poynter, Tom Fletcher (vocals/guitar), Danny Jones (guitar/vocals), and Harry Judd (drums).
The Mc Fly and Mc Busted bass player- who is single since splitting with girlfriend Ellie Goulding earlier this year- had reportedly been meeting with agents and producers while out in LA.
Now, we can confirm Dougie has been taking acting classes and has actually just finished filming one of his first roles- a cameo in a Brit comedy horror film called Double Date, due to be released next year.
I really, really thought I was going to be single for a long while.

A Greatest Hits compilation was released in 2007 followed by two more studio albums: Radio: Active (2008) and Above the Noise (2010).
A second greatest hits album, Memory Lane: The Best of Mc Fly, was released in November 2012.
Also in 2012, the band debuted their first written autobiography, Mc Fly: Unsaid Things... The Anthology tour, in which they will play all five of their albums, will serve as Mc Fly's first live reunion since 2013.
The tour was postponed from June until September 2016 after drummer Harry Judd injured his neck.
