The album X, which spent two months at the top of the charts, was the follow up to his debut +.

Sales figures from the Official Charts Company show it sold more than one million copies across all formats.

That puts it alongside other million-sellers including Emeli Sande's Our Version Of Events and Adele's 21.

Sheeran, who is from Halifax, also celebrated a US number one with X, and said he was "buzzing" at the news.

Sheeran, who recently announced plans to headline Wembley Stadium with just his guitar and an effects pedal, claims the secret to his success is that he appeals to fans who feel they do not fit in.
