What we said:
If the press are to be believed, the youth of today divide their time between getting drunk, sleeping ‘til noon and, latterly, rioting. Full marks to young Ed Sheeran
then, the flame-haired troubadour who’s doing his utmost to prove the stern-faced adults wrong, even if that means proving his staggering work ethic by performing 312 gigs in one year. Add to this the fact that, on his debut
, he strikes a parent-friendly balance between sensitive, acoustic singer/songwriter and potty-mouthed hip-hop star, he already has two smash singles
under his belt and that, physically, he’s a dead-ringer for Prince Harry, and, hell, he’s practically the UK’s most eligible bachelor.
