STOP. EVERYTHING. Put down that mid-afternoon cuppa/cocktail/Lambrini, sit up straight and maybe grab yourself a fan because Ed Sheeran is apparently in the market for a new girlfriend and it could be YOU.
Yes, YOU. Sitting there eating an entire tray of brownie with a side of smarties (oh, sorry, think that’s us).
Er, you will have fight us off first though, obviously. Good luck, friends. Good. Luck.
So, here’s the situation. According to reports, Eddy’s pals reckon that since he’s now a single barbeque-flavoured pringle following his sad split from the lovely Athina Andrelos (WAH), he should be totally ready to mingle.
A source told Mirror Celeb: “Ed’s mates weren’t too keen on Athina and weren’t disappointed when they split after the Brit Awards. It’s very unlikely they’ll be getting back together.
“His friends want to set him up with a new girl and have their eye on a few people they’ve mentioned to him but he’s very picky for obvious reasons.”
Here’s the part where you might trip over your own feet trying to rush out the front door though, as the source also claims that they want him to date someone who doesn’t know who he is, and have already got their eye on someone.
1) Good luck with that, considering he’s a ruddy global megastar, and 2) We’re willing to bet our last piece of chewing gum on the fact that that someone is us.
We never really liked chewing gum anyway.
The source continued: “Ed doesn’t want a famous girlfriend, he just wants someone down to earth and normal to share his life with.
“His friends are looking out for him and don’t want him to be with anyone who just wants to be with him because he’s famous.”
Hi, our name is Yahoo Celebrity and here’s why we think we should be in the running of Ed Sheeran’s Next Top Girlfriend.
Firstly, we can’t get enough of that Nandos chicken. Secondly, we like ginger hair. Thirdly, we’re mildly obsessed with every single one of Ed’s songs, and will happily sit there looking like the heart-eyed emoji at all of his gigs. Fourthly, we also love Taylor Swift AND cats. Lots of cute cats.
We’d also happily tattoo his face on our forehead if he wanted us too and we also love Nandos.
And if all that doesn’t persuade him, at least we’ll still have his wax figure to cuddle at night, eh?
