Ellie Goulding has revealed how she had a dramatic escape from an all-terrain vehicle after it plunged into an icy lake in Norway a number of weeks ago.

The Love Me Like You Do hitmaker shared a photo on her Instagram page of a half-submerged vehicle in a frozen lake in Norway, where she was travelling with photographer Conor McDonnell.

The 29-year-old star captioned the image,"Throwback to a few weeks ago when myself and @conormcdphoto nearly ended up in a lake in -30 ... Note to self don't drive a BV206 over a frozen lake."

McDonnell also shared the image, saying, "So me and @elliegoulding weren't going to post about this but we decided that it's too mad of a story not to tell. This photo is from when we were in Norway a few weeks ago - That moment when you're in -25 in the middle of nowhere in Norway in the pitch black and your belt wagon crashes through the ice in the middle of a lake and you have to emergency evacuate through the roof.

"'Oh s*** we're in' was my first thought. Second was to take photos. We were in the front cabin. That is pretty much under water in this photo. A few minutes later it was all completely gone under the water and ice for good."
