Ed Sheeran close to tears as he confirms break-up

As we reported two days ago, Ed Sheeran is once again a single man.

While a lot of his fans may be rejoicing at the news, we’re not so sure Ed is quite as pleased…

Ed confirmed the news during a chat with Australian radio personalities Kyle and Jackie O and looks really sad when he talks about his break-up.

When asked by the hosts if he is single, Ed says that while he had been in a relationship, he no longer is and when asked how he feels about this he says simply, ‘erm’…

Ed had been in a relationship with Jamie Oliver employee Athina for the past few months but the couple are said to have gone their separate ways when Athina tired of Ed’s partying (remember THOSE photos?)

Poor Ed – we’re sure there is somebody lovely just around the corner.
