Sheeran: I'm sleeping on a sofa

Ed Sheeran still sleeps on his manager's sofa

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."

Aries:

Wanderlust may be too powerful to resist. Planning a long holiday will be a pleasant diversion from work. You don't have to have fancy accommodation. You're willing to rough it for an adventure, but you do want to get good value for your money. Doing some research into the best places to stay and eat will pay off handsomely. Take along a friend who is free spirited and eager to explore unfamiliar vistas. The two of you will make great travelling companions.More
