Teenager who proposed to singer Ed Sheeran dies

By Staff Reporter

The terminally ill teenager who 'married' Ed Sheeran during his concert in Scotland last week has died.

Katie Papworth, who had an aggressive form of brain cancer, proposed to the singer backstage at Glasgow's SSE Hydro.

But Katie passed away early yesterday.

In her favourite 'Mrs Ed Sheeran' T-shirt, she had made an emotional proposal to the redhead.

The talented singer, whose family are originally from Galway, smiled and said: "I suppose I should say yes. Okay."

She also painted a picture of a Lego house for Ed, which she gave him on the night. The 23-year-old musician signed a copy of it and wrote: "Dear Katie, lovely to finally meet my wife."
