Items of clothing worn by the music industry's man of the moment, Ed Sheeran, are to be sold off in aid of East Anglia's Children's Hospices (EACH).

Among the set of 70 items are a T-shirt Ed wore for a magazine photoshoot in 2012 and tops he has been pictured in alongside fellow musician Taylor Swift, plus a tour T-shirt with signed postcard.

The clothes will be auctioned in phases on eBay, with 20 items for sale from today until April 2, another 20 available between March 30, and April 9, 15 on offer between April 6, and April 16, and a final 15 up for grabs between April 13, and April 23.

Each auction phase will start and finish at around 6pm.

The Suffolk star, 26, has been an EACH ambassador since 2014 and helps the charity, which cares for children and young people with life-threatening conditions and supports their families, bringing in thousands of pounds.

He has also paid a visit to EACH's Treehouse hospice in Ipswich, which is close to his family home in Framlingham.

This auction comes just four months after another that featured the Burberry suit jacket the singer wore to the 2013 Grammy Awards. Ed Sheeran clothing auctions have raised £8,060 so far.
