The Capital Weekender with Charlie Powell 10pm - 1am
Capital takes a closer look at one of the sweetest friendships in pop as we delve into what makes Ed Sheeran and US star Taylor Swift the perfect musical matches for one another.
Taylor posted this up on Twitter and it pretty much sums up their ENTIRE friendship.
We're pretty sure when this moment happened, the whole world felt ALL of the feels. WE LOVE YOU TOO ED.
Something about this picture just SCREAMS "Let us be your pals too!"
Just see this snap of them out clubbing with budding star Austin Mahone for reference.
"Hands down @edsheeran's best look ever. #redtour" Taylor posted alongside this delightful snap. Picture: Taylor Swift instagram
We reckon this hat looks rather fetching on young Ed! Picture: Getty
We could LOVE to have been a fly-on-the-wall in this conversation. Picture: Getty
See this snap of them touring the UK just melts our HEARTS!
"Ed told me to caption this "SWEERAN" Taylor posted with this snap. Think we've found ourselves a new name for this pair! Picture: Instagram
Love this snap of Taylor and Ed partying with Harry Styles after the MTV VMAs. Picture: spikyphil instagram
Wait... is that Cara Delevingne singing with our favourite pop pair? Picture: Instagram
Taylor claimed she had "the best day ever" as she hit Disney World with the British star. Her face says it all!
Both Taylor and Ed have been vocally supportive of each other in the press and Ed told MTV the two are "very much alike musically", which makes sense since they are two of the biggest singer-songwriters in the world right now. Picture: Twitter
The pair recorded the song 'Everything Has Changed' for the country star's album 'Red'.
The 'Lego House' man hit the road with the singer on her huge North American 'Red' tour.
If there's one sure sign that the friendship between Ed and US star Taylor is real, it's that the two plan to release even more duets together in the future.
Taylor was quick to send Ed a message of congratulations after his MTV Europe Music Awards nomination,, and the 'A Team' singer did similarly after Taylor sold a massive 1.2 million copies of her album 'Red' in just one week. There's one thing that's for sure…these two have each other's backs!
After being congratulated by Taylor for his achievements on Twitter, the 'Small Bump' star revealed he has already come up with a pet name for his mate across the pond when he affectionately referred to her as 'Tay Tay'. #Adorbs.
By having him join her on tour in 2013, Ed says Taylor is helping to "open up doors" for him in the United States as he will get to bring his unique brand of pop to an entirely new audience. Now THAT'S what friends are for.
While supporting Taylor on the 'Red' tour in 2013 is a big deal for Ed Sheeran, 'Begin Again' singer Taylor seems just as excited about their country-wide adventure and has said she feels like the "luckiest girl" to have the UK star joining her on the road.
The 'Love Story' singer wrote 'Everything Has Changed' with Ed at her home in America, and the singer later revealed she had cracked out the oven mitts and baked him an apple pie after their songwriting marathon. Save us a slice Taylor! Picture: Twitter
Ed has already immortalised Taylor's album and tour 'Red' by having the title tattooed onto his left bicep, after realising the tour will be a big part of his life in 2013. There's no going back now Ed! Picture: Twitter
Especially when they've got the HUGE Madison Square Garden right in the palm of their hands!
Back on the 'Red' tour, this was many fans' favourite moment of the night. Picture: Splash
