While touring Australia back in March, Ed Sheeran made a stop at the Home and Away set in Sydney to film with the cast, and now his cameo scenes are set to premiere.
At the time all details of the singer's appearance on the popular Aussie drama were kept under wraps, with producers confirming only that Ed would play himself. Now we've finally been blessed with the details and it sounds like Ed's episode will make for brilliant viewing.
The Thinking Out Loud singer will apparently make a visit to Summer Bay to visit his old nanny, Marilyn Chambers, played by long-standing cast member Emily Symons.
When Marilyn tells residents that her darling 'Teddy' is coming to see her, nobody is any the wiser… until Ed himself shows up and treats the town to a surprise performance in The Diner.
While Ed's cameo is set to air on Australian TV in the next week or two, the fact that Ireland and the UK are at least a month behind on episodes means that we may have to wait a while to watch it on this side of the world.
Taking time out from a hectic touring schedule to film on set was a no-brainer for Ed, who says he grew up with Home and Away. "It's an Australian institution. It's always on in my local chip shop," he said.
"I got asked to do it and it sounded like it could be fun. I did Shortland Street in New Zealand as well and I'm sure if Emmerdale or EastEnders ever ask me in England I would do that as well."
Cast member Alec Snow, who plays Matt Page in the long-running soap, said the singer was extremely easy to work with and "a really down-to-earth, nice guy that genuinely wanted to be there."
First stop Summer Bay, next stop Fair City's Carrigstown? We could definitely see Ed sitting down to a pint in McCoy's…
