Ed Sheeran returned to BBC2’s ‘Later… With Jools Holland’ for the third time in his career earlier this evening, opening the show with his recent No.1, Shape Of You

Last appearing back in 2014, Sheeran’s return to the show comes midway through his Divide UK tour, which will eventually see him stop at various points, including Glasgow, Manchester, Birmingham and London.

Ed’s appearance will see him eventually perform three songs throughout the show, Shape of You, Galway Girl and a third, likely to be broadcast during the extended airing this Friday. Toward the end of the programme, host Jools Holland also confirmed Sheeran will reappear on the ‘Hootenanny’ New Year’s Eve special to close off 2017.
