The 25-year-old wore the jacket when he performed alongside Elton John and it still has a $20 bill and a taxi company card in one pocket.

The auction is being held by East Anglia's Children's Hospices (EACH) and other lots on offer include a Duffer of St George T-shirt he wore to the BBC Radio 1 Teen Awards in 2011 and a Jack Wills hoody which he has been pictured wearing at a recording studio next to world-renowned DJ Martin Garrix.

The 'Thinking Out Loud' singer has been an EACH Ambassador since 2014 and has become known for donating his clothes and old instruments to the charity, helping it to bring in thousands of pounds.

The auction comes after the sale of Mr Sheeran's teenage drum kit last week – which made £2,650 for the charity.
