Ed Sheeran to star in Australian soap opera ‘Home and Away’

Ed Sheeran is set to star in an upcoming episode of Australian soap opera Home and Away. Playing as his real-life character, the British singer-songwriter features in several scenes that will be broadcast in an episode later this year.

The ‘Thinking Out Loud’ singer was was earlier caught in a photograph on set at Palm Beach in Sydney with actress Emily Symons, sparking rumours that Sheeran would be joining the show.

The official Home and Away Twitter account subsequently confirmed Sheeran’s involvement, tweeting: “Yes, we can confirm @edsheeran was in #SummerBay today…Bet you can’t wait to find out why…”

A Channel Seven representative refused to reveal details of the storyline that “brings Ed to Summer Bay” but told Daily Mail Australia that he will be appearing “as himself”.

Sheeran was recently hotly tipped to make an acting debut in Bollywood, after Happy New Year director Farah Khan revealed that he and actor Abhishek Bachchan spent time socialising with the singer at a wedding in Mumbai.

“It was very gracious of Abhishek to let me bring Ed and his team to his home.” Khan said. “Not only did Ed hit it off with Abhishek, but before I left, they both also decided that Ed would act in Happy New Year 2.”
