Outside of the music world, it was also confirmed this week that Ed will be making a guest appearance in the latest series of Game of Thrones. Whilst no further details have been announced, it was revealed that he was drafted in as a surprise for actress Maisie Williams.
As Ed Sheeran continues to dominate 2017, we’re lost for words as to what he will achieve next. He is currently unstoppable, and we love him for it.
