Suffolk singer Ed Sheeran and Norwich City chairman Ed Balls have both made Heat magazine's list of the nations weirdest crushes.

Sheeran came third with Balls flagging behind in eleventh in the poll topped by EastEnders star Jake Wood.

He beat the likes of Alan Carr, Ricky Gervais and Eamonn Holmes to the top of the Heat magazine list, which includes recent reality show favourites Rylan Neal-Clark and James Cosmo.

Wood, who plays London bad boy Max Branning in the BBC soap, joked that he had already started working on his campaign to hold the position for a fourth year.
