Ella Eyre becomes Nintendo 3DS ambassador

ELLA Eyre's Nintendo 3DS helps her stay close to her friends when she's away.

The 'We Don't Have To Take Our Clothes Off' hitmaker - who has signed up as an ambassador of the gaming device - doesn't worry about missing her boyfriend Rixton's Lewi Morgan and best friend Chloe Howl when she's away as she can live vicariously through 'Tomodachi Life'.

Speaking about the game, Ella said: "I'm away from home a lot, so I love things that give me a sense of familiarity. It really makes me laugh to see my favourite people being silly - it reminds me that even if I'm not with them, I can still watch them mess around together.

"My Mii character is having a really tough time getting a boyfriend at the moment. Lewi keeps knocking me back, so I have to think up ways to get him to like me. I've sung him songs, visited his island and even taken him his favourite snack spring rolls to try and tempt him - trying the classic 'the way to a man's heart through his stomach' tactic, but so far ... nothing!"

The game, which allows the 22-year-old singer to populate her very own island with her closest friends and family before watching the drama unfold, has joined a new Nintendo 3DS campaign 'My Life in 3DS' where she gives an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at her gaming life.

And Ella has revealed her Mii is about to embark on a relationship with a new guy, introduced to her by Chloe.

She said: "With all the break-ups and dating, it feels a bit like an episode of a soap ... I'm hoping the Ella Mii can have a happy ending and meet someone new to have some wonderful times with!"

In addition to 'Tomodachi Life', Ella loves playing 'Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer' and 'Mario Kart 7'.

Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 2DS owners can download the free 'Tomodachi Life' demo today from Nintendo eShop.
