Ed can't drive. So when's the best time to learn? On national television, obvi.
This week, Ed Sheeran got behind the wheel of Top Gear's "Reasonably Priced Car" to give it a spin. But there was just one eensy minor little wee setback with this scenario.
I'm driving for the first time ever today, on a race track, on tv. Wish me luck— Ed Sheeran (@edsheeran) January 21, 2015
Yep, 23 year-old Ed has never gotten around to getting his license - or set foot in the driver's seat, apparently.
So of course the best time to make your driving debut is when trying to beat the record for completing the Surrey-based racing circuit in a Vauxhall Astra.
And the result went about as well as you'd expect.
Ed no that's not the road
After a few murmurs about crashing, Ed took to Twitter again today to clear things up:
And I didn't crash on top gear, I went off road. Was my first time driving ever. Tune in Sunday to see what actually happened— Ed Sheeran (@edsheeran) January 23, 2015
We'll be sure to tune in on Sunday to see the madness unfold.
