Ed Sheeran has been reunited with his prized guitars after an American airline lost them following his return flight to the UK.

The 'Lego House' singer is back in England this week after a promotional trip to the US, but revealed yesterday (21st June) that he was distraught at having lost two of his "irreplaceable" guitars, nicknamed Cyril and Nigel.

"So after delta messing up the flight over here, they have lost both my guitars. Bring back Cyril and Nigel," Ed tweeted yesterday.

The 'Small Bump' star received sympathy from friend and fellow artist Professor Green, who described it as a very "s****y" thing to happen.

"@edsheeran They'll find them it'll just take a while," the 'Read All About It' rapper posted.

This morning Ed updated fans and confirmed he had been happily reunited with his instruments after the mishap.

He tweeted: "cyril and nigel are now safe and sound."
