Poor Ed Sheeran’s day just got a WHOLE lot worse!

It's not been the best Tuesday for Ed Sheeran so far.

First he revealed that he's under doctor's orders to communicate only via a marker and whiteboard between shows until some vocal chord issues clear up.

And now the news has broken that the Thinking Out Loud singer has split from his girlfriend of over a year, Athina Andrelos.

​It's thought the couple have been split up since Ed's notoriously drunken night at the BRITs last month, which didn't go down too well with Athina.

"The final straw was at the after-party. It was a combination of Ed drinking too much and him being unable to deal with a girl that kept bothering them that night," a source told Heat magazine. 

"The next day, when Athina drove Ed to the airport, they spoke about everything and they decided to take a break because it was unfair on both of them."

Talk about a grim hangover – no doubt made a billion times worse by the fact that Ed had to fly off for the first leg of his six month tour that very same day.

Athina was Ed's first romantic interest after Ellie Goulding famously cheated on him with One Direction singer Niall Horan, a bust-up well documented in Ed's song Don't. 

We hope he's doing okay since the split!
