Appearing on The Jonathan Ross Show, the pop star from Framlingham spoke about the accident which has seen him cancel performances on his upcoming tour.

He said: “I broke my wrist, my elbow and my rib. I came off a bike quite fast, a bicycle, a pedal bike. I was in Suffolk [going down a really steep hill].

“The thing is, when it happened, I got up and was like, ‘That hurt’ and then cycled to the pub. Went home, went to sleep and then woke up at five o’clock in the morning in a lot of pain. And then went to the hospital.”

He joked that he drank Adnams in the pub which had seemingly detracted from the pain he must have been in after the crash.

Sheeran added: “I was with a few people. They didn’t even see the fall, they were really far in front of me. It wasn’t my bike and it was brand new brakes. I was borrowing the bike.”

This is the first time the singer has had to cancel gigs because of something affecting him directly.

“I do a one man show so me not having my arms is half of the show, so I’ve had to postpone a couple of shows which sucks,” he said.

“I tried to say I’ll carry on doing shows but they said if I put anymore stress on it, I might not be able to play [guitar] again so it’s good to be sensibe.”

On the subject of his recovery, he said: “They are saying four weeks and then we’ll look at it.”

He admitted he didn’t wear a helmet or pads when he crashed and added: “I don’t think I’m going to cycle for a while. I’ve got quite a big tour next year.”

During the interview, Ed also talked about winning big at the Q Awards, skiing in his new music video and the darker side of fame.

He is joined on the show by Rita Ora, Gordon Ramsay and Russell Howard.
