share close

Ed Sheeran says he has tested positive for COVID-19, but will continue to perform and carry out interviews from home.

The singer announced the news in a video on Instagram, saying: “Hey guys. Quick note to tell you that I’ve sadly tested positive for Covid, so I’m now self-isolating and following government guidelines.

“It means that I’m now unable to plough ahead with any in person commitments for now, so I’ll be doing as many of my planned interviews/performances I can from my house.

“Apologies to anyone I’ve let down. Be safe everyone.”

But the NHS said a record number of coronavirus booster jabs were administered on Saturday, with more than 800,000 inoculations given in the past 72 hours.

It comes a month after the artist shared the stage with the team behind the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine for an awards ceremony.
