ED SHEERAN IS responsible for a lot of things – hit songs, marriage proposals, melting the hearts of Ireland after his appearance on the Toy Show…

But he’s also apparently responsible for any ginger lad currently getting some.

Or so he says.

In an interview with 92.3 AMP Radio, Sheeran recounted an incident whereby a female fan e-mailed his management to let them know that she had had sex with Ed the night before… or at least someone that looked like him.

It was like ‘I think I slept with Ed last night at a festival, but I can’t remember if it was him or not. If it was him, tell him he’s an a**hole and if it wasn’t, tell him I’m sorry for this e-mail. This was like a couple of weeks ago.

Now Sheeran believes that all you ginger men getting the ride have one person to thank: Ed Sheeran.

There’s basically a lot of ginger dudes in England that look like me that are using it. And that’s why I’m not hating on it. We’re finally getting laid. This is a good thing.

Just think of him as a wingman from afar.

In fairness, he might be on to something…
