Catering boss Nigel, who moved in two years later, also revealed Ed crashed out in a bedroom, adding: “I’m sure back in the day all sorts would have gone on in there.”

Nigel said: “It’s amazing to think that the biggest music star in the world used to play little gigs in our garden.

“Within a few years he was performing to crowds of more than 100,000.”
