Turn on RTÉ2 tonight to see a VERY special Home And Away cameo

Ed Sheeran fans, get the popcorn ready for 6.30pm tonight.

Earlier in the year Ed filmed a cameo on popular Aussie soap Home And Away, and though it's already aired Down Under, Irish viewers have yet to see the singer's appearance.

But that's about the change this evening as RTÉ2 are finally set to air the episode.

The Thinking Out Loud singer will 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. 

Ed headed to Summer Bay in the middle of his hectic Australia and New Zealand touring schedule, but he says giving up his precious free time was a no-brainer.

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… and I'm sure if Emmerdale or EastEnders ever ask me in England I would do that as well." 

We can't wait to see tonight's episode.
