A radio breakfast show host has suggested Suffolk superstar Ed Sheeran should have a statue built.
The subject came up in this morning’s Radio One Breakfast Show, which Ed is co-hosting with Scott Mills and Chris Stark, after releasing two new songs following a year’s break from music.
One of Ed’s heroes, former England and Newcastle United star Alan Shearer was also on the show, and it was mentioned there was a statue of the striker in his home city of Newcastle.
“But you’ve not got a statue, so surely that’s the next thing?” Stark said to Ed.
Ed said Shearer’s statue was the “coolest thing”.
He also remarked on his experience of having a wax work made of him for Madame Tussauds’ museum in London.
“On the day they pretty much strip you naked and poke at you for five hours,” he said.
“It’s the most awkward thing.”

His appearance on the show comes after the singer, who grew up in Framlingham, has treated fans to two new singles from his upcoming album, Divide.
Shape Of You and Castle On The Hill were posted on iTunes and YouTube at 5am today.
Ed, who took a break from music in 2015, wrote on his Twitter page: “Cause I’ve been away for a bit here’s two singles rather than one.”
