Teddy's back from his gap year and he's brought some bangers with him!

Ed Sheeran is known the world over as everyone's favourite ginger. He doesn't really get involved in any of that fame drama either. A real likeable lad. He always dresses like that guy you went to prom with in high school, looks like he'd never hurt a fly, and he's not exactly what you'd call the edgiest of characters.

We were determined to prove, though, that Ed Sheeran is an interesting guy so we compiled a list of the most interesting things about our main man Ed.  

1) He names his guitars. These names include Lloyd, Felix, Cyril, and Nigel.

2) Ed's video for Lego House features an equally red haired Rupert Grint as an obsessed fan. Despite being actual Ron Weasley, Grint often gets mistaken for Sheeran. 

3) Nearly all of Ed's tattoos have something to do with his career. He's got a Lego head, the word 'Bloodstream' and tat honouring his first single, 'A-Team'.
