Ed Sheeran has joined Pope Francis, Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un to feature in Time magazine’s most influential people list.

The Framlingham star was nominated by friend and fellow artist Taylor Swift.

Whether by choice or an unconscious evolution, when he decided on his musical ambitions, Ed became less of a boy and more of a tank.”

A few years ago, in a rare moment of admitting feeling defeated, Ed said to me, ‘I’m never going to win a Grammy.’

Yes, you are, I said. You’re going to sweep the whole thing one of these years.

– Taylor Swift

Ed Sheeran fans have been queuing the rain to pick up a bargain second-hand shirt.

The Suffolk singer-songwriter has donated around 20 items of his clothing to the new East Anglia's Children's Hospices (EACH) shop in Halesworth in Suffolk.

Ed is an ambassador for EACH and has donated clothing before.

Some 100 items sold previously for £8,000, as well as his teenage drum kit which raised £2,650.
