Ed Sheeran is about to star on this very famous family TV show

After his cameo appearance on the new season of Game of Thrones, Ed Sheeran is clearly not shy when it comes to TV.

The singing star is reported to be stepping into another role on a beloved TV show, but this time of the animated variety. 

Ed has taken to Instagram to confirm rumours that he will be appearing in a special episode of The Simpsons.

The star will be playing Lisa Simpson's love interest, a slightly older musician called Brendan. 

The role will dominate a special singing episode of the show in the 29th season titled Haw Haw Land, a joke version of La La Land.

Ed has always been a big fan of the show, so producers jumped at the chance to have him voice a part. 

'We had a perfect part for him,' executive producer Al Jean told Entertainment Weekly. 

'So we said, "Oh, great, we’ll have him do this!" And we recorded him over the phone from England.'

We're so exciting for this upcoming episode!
