Tanya Mercer has been to take a lot at some of Ed Sheeran's clothes.
Ed Sheeran superfans can get closer to the singer-songwriter than ever before - as dozens of pairs of his boxer shorts go up for auction.
The 32-year-old singer has donated clothes from his wardrobe - including trousers, jumpers and underwear - to East Anglia's Children's Hospices (EACH).
Nearly 450 items have been handed over including 149 pairs of boxer shorts, half of which have been worn by the singer.
The haul will be auctioned off, mostly on the charity's eBay site in a bid to raise thousands of pounds which will go towards helping families and carers for children across Suffolk, Norfolk, Cambridgeshire and Essex.
The singer-songwriter has been an ambassador for the charity since 2014 and thedonations were delivered by a member of his team to the Each shop in Framlingham.
Each plans to release a total of 186 items, including 27 pairs of boxer shorts, during three separate auctions - the first of which begins on Tuesday.
Some 62 items will be available in the first tranche, with the next two auctions going live on 26 November and 3 December, for seven days each.
Another 239 will then be listed in a second sale early next year, with the remaining 20 being reserved for new Each shop openings.
