The Suffolk singer, whose song Thinking Out Loud is number one in the single charts, saw his camouflage hoodie go for almost £1,000.

Sheeran, an ambassador for the charity, sold his old wardrobe on eBay for the EDP-backed nook appeal which aims to raise £10m to build a new hospice at Framingham Earl for Norfolk's sick children.

Simon Hempsall, from EACH, said: 'We're extremely grateful to Ed for this unique fundraising opportunity and have been blown away by the response to the auction – helped in no small way by him tweeting it to his 11.4 million followers.'

The highest selling items were: a Nike hoodie, £990; black tour hoodie, £740; Ralph Lauren hoodie (green) £710, Ralph Lauren hoodie (blue) £561; headphones, £410; and a checked shirt, £400.
