Ed Sheeran seems extremely down to earth so it's no surprise that he took that approach when trying to woo his new rumoured love interest Nicole Scherzinger. 

It has been reported that Ed captured her attention with low-key nights involving Pizza Express takeaways and orange squash.

Apparently the pair are spending a lot of time together since Ed invited Nicole to one of his sell-out shows in Wembley Stadium last month. 

A source told Heat magazine: "Ed's a man of simple pleasures. After the gig, he ordered Pizza Express takeaway for him and Nicole and they drank supermarket brand vodka mixed with Fruit and Barley squash. It doesn't sound like much but she loved it."

The unlikely couple are reportedly in the early stages of dating after they were friends for a long time. 

Nicole broke up with long-term boyfriend Lewis Hamilton back in February after they dated on and off for seven years. 

We think this may just be the perfect match for Nicole as she spoke before about wanting to settle down in the UK. "I do feel like an honorary Brit. I could see myself having a home here, definitely. I love the people here. I get a warm feeling from them," she said.

"Settling down is definitely in the picture for me, but everything at the right time."

According to The Sun the former X Factor judge accompanied Ed to his local pub in Framlingham, Suffolk and the pair were seen drinking G&Ts and eating pork belly. 

We're sure this would also work perfectly if we ever bumped into Ed. 



Hanging out with his baby god son Oscar, getting a massive lion tattooed on his chest… Ed Sheeran's really been making the most of the three-week break in the middle of his X World tour.

But last night he took to the stage yet again, albeit a smaller one than Wembley or Croke Park. The Thinking Out Loud hitmaker surprised guests at Ronan Keating and Storm Uechtritz's wedding celebrations when he showed up to serenade the newlyweds.

Although Ronan and Storm have yet to post any pictures on social media from their big day, their pal Brian McFadden took to Twitter to reveal what had gone down. "Last night had the best jam ever. @BrianMcFadden @edsheeran @ronanofficial @officialkeith Mikey graham and @shanelynchlife madness," he wrote, before sharing this selfie of himself and Ed.

The singer joined the Boyzone gang (and Brian) on stage for the ultimate pop gathering, but according to one guest the whole thing came as a total surprise. "Ed appeared out of nowhere, everyone was so surprised. He was such a nice guy,” one attendee told Goss.ie.

Ronan also serenaded his new wife from the stage with multiple solo songs, while Irish boyband Lunar entertained guests later in the night.

While the guest list was packed with Ronan's music industry pals, it was his children that took centre stage for his big day. The singer's daughters Missy and Ali were bridesmaids for Storm, while his 17-year-old son Jack was best man.

This marriage will hopefully be second time lucky for Ronan, whose divorce from his wife of 12 years Yvonne was finally made official in March of this year. The singer proposed to Storm just weeks later.

"'We've been together a few years now and knew we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together. I felt it was the right time," Ronan told Hello! magazine of his decision to propose.


He's defended his look – but let's face it, Ed Sheeran's latest tattoo has certainly divided opinion.

In fact, there were numerous online commentators who initially assumed that the inking simply HAD TO be fake (a theory which was quickly rubbished by the singer himself).

Not that Ed's the only somewhat unlikely celebrity candidate to get a totally OTT etching.

From Cheryl Fernandez Versini's GIANT rose tattoo on her bum (WTF?) to Zayn's image of Perrie on his arm (opsies) famous folk LOVE to experiment with outrageous body art.


Cheryl Fernandez Versini: We can't even…


Ed Sheeran: Each to their own, we guess


Zayn Malik: That'll need removing, so


Rihanna: It's just A LOT to take in 


Cara Delevingne: Bacon on her foot… a lion on her finger


Tulisa: "Lucky you," down around her lady parts. Oh…


Megan Fox: "We will all laugh at gilded butterflies," – will we?


Sarah Harding: "Don't be bitter – glitter," says Sarah. Fair play.




At age 16 Ed Sheeran decided to drop out of school so he could spend more time dedicated to his music career. We feel like we’re not the only ones who might say he made a good call.

The chart-topping singer has been the recipient of many awards over the last year alone, and now he’s going to be adding another accolade to his mantel piece.

The University Campus Suffolk are honouring the 24-year old with a degree to recognise his outstanding contribution to music.

Ed said about the award: “I'm really grateful to University Campus Suffolk and I'm honoured to receive this Honorary Degree. I've had an amazing year with my world tour and this makes it even better.”

Ed has added that he would do his best to continue to support the university as they have done in the past for him and his music, reports the Daily Mail.

“Suffolk is very much where I call home and I'm always welcomed back and get so much support. Receiving this recognition is a real privilege.”

The Don’t singer has mentioned that he looks forward to “building links” with the university in the future.

This news comes just days after Ed hit the headlines when he unveiled his new giant tattoo.

The pop star was inundated with questions and queries when the media just couldn’t begin to fathom what prompted his decision.


Halfway and ouch

He took to twitter to set the record straight. He said he couldn’t understand “all this kerfuffle over a tattoo”.

He got the ink in order to commemorate his sell-out gigs at Wembley stadium and first revealed the body art in an Instagram post captioned “Halfway and ouch.”

We can only imagine, it is quite the piece of art.



Ed Sheeran has long been a fan of large and colourful tattoos, but his latest one has definitely caused a few gasps of disbelief among fans.

The Thinking Out Loud singer took to Instagram yesterday to show off his new ink, which he says is only "halfway" done. What has he gone for this time? A giant lion's head… right in the centre of his chest.

This addition to his collection has us thinking Ed might be aiming for a full body tattoo sleeve somewhere down the line.

Some politically minded commenters suggested Ed's new ink could be a tribute to Cecil, the lion whose killing by dentist Walter Palmer caused global outrage, but Ed has confirmed that's not the case. Speaking to the BBC a few weeks back, the singer said he had chosen a lion's head – the England football team's logo – to commemorate his trio of sold-out gigs at Wembley Stadium.

"Originally I was going to get the floor plan tattooed on my side, but that seemed a bit ridiculous," he explained.

This won't be the first time Ed has chosen a tattoo design based on a meaningful time in his life, of course.

Other tatts in his huge collection include a teddy bear (his childhood nickname was 'Teddy'), Damien Rice’s signature (taken from 11-year-old Ed's autograph book), a snow flake (to mark his 2012 tour with Snow Patrol), the word ‘Red’ (to commemorate his time on Taylor Swift's Red tour) and jigsaw puzzle pieces (his close friends have corresponding pieces on their own arms).

We can't wait to see Ed's new inking all finished!


Well this is some relationship news that we really were not expecting to hear.

Reportedly, Nicole Scherzinger, 37, and beloved ginger Ed Sheeran, 24, are spending an awful lot of time together, enough that there are now rumours the pair are something of an item.

According to The Sun, the two are said to be “in the early stages of dating”.

Nicole and Ed have been friends for some time now, but apparently things started to take a different turn when she split up from long-term boyfriend Lewis Hamilton in February this year.

It was Ed’s songs that helped the former X Factor judge get through her heartache, apparently. The Daily Mail reports that Nicole joined the singer backstage at one of his Wembley Stadium gigs.

 Just days later he apparently whisked her off to his home town in Suffolk where they visited his favourite local pub.

A source has told The Sun, “As far as he’s concerned they were in the early stages of dating and he’s been open about it with close friends and colleagues.”

Since his break-up from long-term girlfriend Athina Andrelos, Ed has been linked to a number of stars over the last few months.

This included Irish model Louise Johnston, but he quickly out those rumours to rest when he said that his love life had been “non-existent” since he broke up with Athina.



Ed Sheeran sent Twitter into meltdown earlier today when he revealed he'd be dropping a new song this evening. The surprise tune, a collaboration with a mystery artist, caused crazy amounts of speculation online, and it's finally been released… along with a pretty exciting announcement.

Growing Up (Sloane's Song) was recorded with rapper Macklemore and Ryan Lewis (sorry, Taylor Swift fans) in celebration of Macklemore's new daughter Sloane.

Macklemore –  a.k.a. Ben Haggerty – and his fiancée Tricia quietly welcomed little Sloane in May, and this song seems to be the rapper's way of introducing her to the world. "Our daughter, Sloane Ava Simone Haggerty was born 2 months ago on May 29th," he wrote on Soundcloud today. 

"There is nothing like the joy and happiness that comes from bringing a baby into this universe. She has filled my heart in ways that I never knew were possible. She is the love of my life. This song is for her."

While the experience of becoming a father has been a positive one, Ben says it took him time to adjust when he first found out Tricia was expecting.

"I wish that I could say that I was in a 'better place' when I found out the news," he wrote.

"It would make for a far more polished and respectable story. But I think back to that night: praying on the floor at 2am as Tricia went to the bathroom to take the pregnancy test I’d just purchased from Walgreens. I was scared."

Growing Up (Sloane's Song) is available for free download via Soundcloud. Have a listen here – we're loving it so far.




If you attended the Ed Sheeran concert in Croke Park a few weeks ago, then you may just spot yourself in the latest installment of Bridget Jones' Diary.

The singer played to a sold out Croke Park a few weeks and it seems you may just get the chance to relive those amazing moments on the big screen.

The Sun has reported that the concert will be part of the next movie in the franchise, Bridget Jones's Baby. 

The film makers filmed Renee Zellweger's body double on top of a man's shoulders while watching Ed's concert. 

With the plot for the movie still completely under wraps, the body double had to be filmed instead of the actress. "There was no risk in filming Renée at a busy gig. But they knew the cat would be out the bag the minute people saw her at the show," a source told The Sun.

“Renée's body double and the cameramen were in and out of the crowd as quickly as possible."

“These are the first moments in early filming for the new movie. None of the show’s main talent have been involved yet.”

The next film is set to see Bridget give birth, however we have no idea who the father of the baby is just yet. Colin Firth and Hugh Grant fought for the attention of the main character in the past two films but it is yet unknown who the latest love interest will be. 


Ed Sheeran is going to be back in our lives more often than we thought. After this weekend’s incredible performances at Croke Park it is safe to say that our nation is pretty much all about Ed.

The news confirming his role on new TV series The Bastard Executioner is sure to cheer some people up if they find themselves missing the Grammy nominee already.

Ed, 24, will take on the role of Sir Cormac who is said to be “an ambitious and deadly protégé of a high-ranking church elder”.

According to The Hollywood Reporter the new FX drama has been created by Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter.

The ''blood-soaked medieval epic” is one that “tells the story of a 14th century warrior whose life is forever changed when a divine messenger beseeches him to lay down his sword and lead the life of a journeyman executioner''.

Sounds interesting! Certainly not what we’re used to coming from Ed. Stephen Moyer and Katey Sagal are also set to appear in the show.

Katey also appeared in Sons of Anarchy, which Ed was a huge fan of even recording a cover of Foy Vance’s Make It Rain for the series penultimate episode.

Ed has previously said the role is “really, really dark” and “gruesome”. Apparently he didn’t even have to audition! According to The Sun Ed managed to talk his way into the role:

''He had a musician in his last show and I said, 'Oh did he audition for that?' And he said 'No, but I just thought he would be good in it.' So I said, 'Can you put me in your show next?'''

It won't be the first time Ed has appeared on screen as earlier this year he took a trip to Summer Bay for a cameo on Aussie soap Home and Away.



Almost 160,000 fans were lucky enough to see Ed Sheeran play this weekend in Croke Park. 

There were lots of surprises over the weekend, including special guests, proposals… and impromptu sing songs. A crowd of fans were on their way out of Croke Park when they were led in song by a steward singing Molly Malone.

The crowds were in high spirits leaving the stadium, which is positive considering that trying to make your way out of an arena after a concert is usually a VERY stressful ordeal. 



Ed Sheeran played to almost 80,000 people two nights in a row in Croke Park, but last night it was Jay from Kodaline that stole the show. 

The first night of the sold out gig saw at least on proposal in the audience, but quite possibly even more. 

Kodaline were playing with the English singing sensation and as they finished up a song, another band member turned to him and said "Jason, you've something to say?".

Jay then proposed to his long-term girlfriend Etaoin Corr, who is a music publicist living in London. 

Needless to say, the crowd went absolutely wild. 

Last night was the second night Kodaline played with Ed Sheeran, and Glen Hansard, front-man of the Frames even made an appearance. 


Ed Sheeran is really settling into Irish culture this week.

Not only has he managed to sell out his massive Croke Park gigs this weekend, he’s also making time to get in touch with his Irish family.

At a press conference earlier this week he explained that while he was delighted to be able to spend some time pottering about our grand little island, he wouldn’t exactly be spotted in Coppers buying pints for all, yet.


Can't wait for this weekends shows at Croke Park stadium. I love me some Ireland

“I’ve been at my gran’s. We ate pasta last night, hung out with the dogs… Nothing really rock’n'roll to be honest.”

Sounds lovely to be honest, who doesn’t love pasta and puppies? Ed’s granny lives in Wexford, so surely some fans were wondering around hoping to catch a glimpse of the star singer.

Ed is obviously delighted to be able to play for such a massive crowd, saying that last night's gig was "mental" on Twitter. He is clearly quite the family man also:

“Croker is time to catch up with my gran and get cups of tea and not necessarily go out and do 15 Jagerbombs. Not saying that won’t happen at some point, but for this first few days I’m focusing on family sh*t.”

Oh Ed, we love you even more.

If that wasn’t enough to make us all giddy, last night Ed found the perfect way to combat any nerves he had before heading out on stage.

He grabbed a hurley and sliotar and had a fine little puck about before greeting the huge crowd. We wonder if anyone told him it was upside down though?…

Not content with mastering our favourite past time, Ed further immersed himself in our Irish ways when he brought Swords natives Kodaline on stage to sing their single All I Want and Raglan Road.

Who else is excited to see what happens tonight? We certainly are.
