Ed on hanging with Taylor Swift...and her famous mates:

"I was this 22-year-old awkward British kid going on tour with the biggest artist in America, who has all these famous mates. It was very easy. … I would often find myself in situations just kind of waking up and looking over and being like, 'How the f*** did that happen?' "

“I was getting texts from people with pictures of cars going, 'I'd like this for my birthday, please. This one's only .06 percent of your annual income.'" 

Ed on how he was bullied as a youngster:

"You'd put your hand up and not be able to speak. And kids are cruel. So once that would happen, someone would imitate it. And then you'd be like, 'I'm not going to put my hand up next time.'"

Ed on playing people's weddings...for free!

'It's free if I'm free.' As long as you sort me out with a lot of booze and a bed, I'm there."
