The singer joined the cast of the MTV show on a night out earlier this week and is said to have "begged" her new friends for a role in the next series.
"Ellie is absolutely addicted to the show and, being in Newcastle, she was desperate to meet the cast," a source told The Sun.
"She ended up at the Bijoux bar, which is known by fans of the show as a place where they go, and the whole lot of them turned up.
"They welcomed Ellie with open arms and spent the night doing shots and knocking back cocktails together.
"Despite their reputation, Ellie couldn't believe how lovely they all were and asked if she could join them on the show. The lads - in particular ladies' man Gaz - seemed well up for it."
Earlier in the day, Goulding tweeted: "I'm in Newcastle and you know what that means #fckinmortal."
Cheryl Cole was previously rumoured to be planning an appearance on the show.
