There’s only one Perfect for condiment for Ed Sheeran – and that’s tomato ketchup.
The flame-haired singer loves the sauce so much he even gets his security to carry a bottle around with him wherever he goes.
In fact Ed loves the red stuff so much he even has a TATTOO in tribute to it.
The down-to-earth singer is hardly known for his diva-ish demands, but addicted Ed insists on having ketchup with him even when dining at fancy restaurants who refuse to serve it.
“He’s made it a duty of key members of his entourage to carry a bottle wherever he goes so he can have it with everything from his morning sausage butty to up market dinners,” an insider said to the Sun.
Ed even said himself last month if he were Prime Minister one of his first changes would be to make ketchup compulsory “in all places with chips.”
We can’t argue with that.
It’s not known whether Ed packed a bottle of Ketchup in his suit pocket when he went to pick up his MBE from Buckingham palace last month.
The singer made sure he covered his extensive tattoos to meet Prince Charles but managed to raise a few eyebrows as he broke royal protocol as he touched the future king’s arm.
Ed was bestowed the MBE honour for his services to music and charity, after it was announced he was the highest streamed Spotify artist this year.
Ed recently said his ‘dream came true’ when he held on to the top of charts with single Perfect to claim the coveted Christmas number one spot.
The track has now also been certified double platinum by the BPI, having achieved 1.23 million combined UK sales to date.
