ED Sheeran has revealed that he's lucky not to have been kidnapped or killed after his wild partying antics over in the US while on tour eight years ago.

The Bad Habits singer, 30 - who shot to fame in 2011 after releasing his much-loved hit The A Team - was out promoting his second album X.

The star opened up about one of the craziest times in his career on a recent episode of the Halfcast Podcast.

Ed said: ...Tour for me on the Multiply tour, that was when it was really reckless.

...I didn’t have security and it was only me touring, and all my touring crew were like 50 and not wanting to go out to clubs so I would finish a show and head out on my own.

“Very reckless. I could have got robbed, kidnapped or anything...”

The award-winning artist was out in America at the time touring with the likes of Snow Patrol and Taylor Swift.

He described the time as his ...reckless period in terms of everything....

Ed confessed: ...I was 22. I had a stutter when I was a kid, I had ginger hair, really big glasses and I was just a bit geeky, so girls were never, ever interested. Now I’ve had success, had my eyes lasered and lost some weight.”

He soon calmed down when he resparked his flame with wife Cherry Seaborn, who he has known since school.

After realising that he was partying too much, he invited his best friend Lauren out on tour with him.

She had the idea of inviting Cherry out with them as she was studying in America at the time.

Since then the pair have been inseperable.

Ed and Cherry started dating when they were 24.

In 2015 the pair announced the exciting news that they were engaged.

Ed told his fans on Instagram: “Got myself a fiancé just before new year. We are very happy and in love, and our cats are chuffed as well xx”

A year later they tied the knot in top-secret Christmas wedding.

In August 2020 they revealed that they were expecting their first child together.

Then a month later Ed announced he had become a dad after Cherry gave birth to their baby girl Lyra Antarctica.
