The 'Lego House' singer chats to Capital FM ahead of today's performance.

Ed Sheeran is excited to make his debut at Capital FM's Jingle Bell Ball in London tonight (4th December).

The 'A Team' singer spoke to Capital FM as he prepared for what he believes will be a fantastic day.

"I'm primed and pumped like a tire," he admitted.

Ed also confessed that he has got the bug for performing on a grand scale having recently played a few arena shows.

"When you're a singer songwriter, especially with just an acoustic guitar, you can't really fathom what it's like to have 14,000 people singing your song back. But then you experience it and it's like 'wow'. Tonight should be really special," he said.

The 'Lego House' singer will be taking to the stage on a day which also features performances from JLS, One Direction, Jessie J, Wretch 32, Emeli Sande, The Saturdays and headliner Jessie J.

Capital FM will be coming live from the Jingle Bell Ball at London's O2 Arena all weekend. Keep checking Capitalfm.com for all the latest news, photo galleries and interviews from this year's festive spectacular.
