Ed Sheeran appears on Jools Holland’s BBC show

RISING music star Ed Sheeran took his music to an audience of millions last night when he performed on a top-rated television show.

The singer-songwriter from Framlingham played on the live version of BBC2’s Later... With Jools Holland.

He joined a line-up that included Beatles legend Ringo Starr and indie veteran PJ Harvey. Ed, 20, will feature on Friday’s longer version of the show, performing two tracks.

Writing on his Twitter page, he said appearing on the show – which has been credited with boosting the careers of many artists – was a “dream come true”.

The former Thomas Mills High School pupil signed a six-album deal with Atlantic Records earlier this year.
