Ed tries his hand at TV presenting… and his first job’s a BIG one

First Home and Away, now MTV… Ed Sheeran is making his mark in the world of television.

The Thinking Out Loud singer has confirmed he'll be presenting the 2015 MTV Europe Music Awards later this month in Milan – a pretty prestigious gig for someone who's just starting out.


So happy to say I’m hosting the #MTVEMAs on 25th October! Cannot wait. mtvema.com

With four EMA nominations himself this year for X, Ed might have to do some juggling between presenting and accepting, but luckily he'll have a co-presenter to take the heat off him.

The English star will be joined on stage in Milan by none other than Orange Is The New Black's Ruby Rose.

Not the first person we'd have paired with him (surely his new bestie Beyoncé should have had a look in?) but all the same, we're sure they'll be a good match.

Ruby announced the news via Twitter last night, posting a pretty bizarre snap of herself and Ed surrounded by butterflies, flaming roses and a rabbit with a gas mask. Standard.

Previous MTV EMA presenters include Eva Longoria, Selena Gomez, Heidi Klum, RedFoo and Nick Minaj – wonder if Ed has a costume like this planned?

We'll have to wait and see on October 25…
