Ed Sheeran’s meteoric rise to the top of the music game may seem unlikely to some, but nobody is more surprised by his continued growth than Ed himself.

He tells US Weekly: "I thought I would have hit my peak four or five years ago. I'm still baffled by how big it's getting, but it’s the most wonderful thing."

Adding: "The album just dropped and I'm out singing songs that have been secret for the last three years and people have already memorized the lyrics."

His album Divide is out now.
