Suffolk superstar Ed Sheeran has announced a further 23 dates to his 2022 tour - which will now include five shows at Wembley Stadium in London.

The singer, who grew up in Framlingham, announced the first leg of his widely-anticipated + - = ÷ x tour earlier this month.

This included three dates at Wembley, but two more have been added as thousands of fans bought tickets for the original gigs the moment they went on sale.

There are still no Suffolk dates planned for the + - = ÷ x tour, but hopes are high among community leaders that Ed will perform homecoming shows much like he did at the end of his Divide tour.

More shows in Manchester, Sunderland and Cardiff have also been announced by the 30-year-old Shape of You hitmaker.

Sheeran is preparing for the release of his new album = - pronounced 'equals' - at the end of October.
