Ed Sheeran hasn't splashed out since landing a hit with single The A Team - the thrifty star is still sleeping on his manager's couch.

Despite his chart success, the flame-haired musician, whose follow-up single You Need Me is out later this month, is still waiting for the money to start rolling in.

He told the Daily Star: "I'm still living on my manager's sofa at the moment. I think it will be a while.

"I keep in touch with everyone who has helped me out in the past with places to stay. I get them to gigs.

"I lived on my friend Darryl's floor for about a year, so last week he came to a show and I basically gave him my whole drinks rider. He took home a massive crate of beer."

Ed, from Suffolk, added: "I never did this to be rich and it will be a while before any money comes in.

"The benefits for me are more people coming to my gigs. It's all about the live shows."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aquarius:

This is a great time to go shopping. You'll find some clothes, furniture or artwork that seems tailor made to your taste. Don't worry about spending more money than usual. The things you buy will give you years of pleasure. If you're looking for work, volunteer at a charitable organisation that is close to your heart. This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
