Ed Sheeran reveals reason behind taking on Home And Away gig…as he performs intimate roof top gig in Sydney.

He shocked Australian audiences earlier this week with the revelation that he will appear on Australian soapie Home And Away this year.

And after filming his scenes during a break from his Australian tour on Tuesday, Ed Sheeran revealed the reason behind his decision.

Speaking on The Kyle And Jackie O radio show on KIISFM on Friday, the 24-year-old singer said it was a very simple process.

‘They just asked me [to appear on the show] and I said “Yes!”’ he revealed.

‘I’m at a stage in my career where I just want to do fun things.’

‘I really don’t care about being ‘cool’ or anything I just want to do stuff because it’s fun and sometimes I say ‘yes’ and sometimes I say ‘no’.

The Give Me Love songwriter said that he will appear as himself on the long running show, which is set to screen later this year.

Earlier this week he was spotted filming scenes on Palm Beach with soap veteran Emily Symons and while Sheeran remained tight lipped on the subject, he did admit that his role is involved with Symon’s character, Marilyn Chambers nee Bryant and Fisher.

‘…Emily was great, I really liked her,’ he said refusing to go in to more detail.

While he claimed to enjoy himself on set with the cast, the famous performer fears that he may have left a bad impression as he admitted that he didn’t say goodbye to any of the actors before leaving.

The British star said that falling ill in the past week, which he revealed on Twitter that doctors recommended he not speak at all in between shows and to only communicate with a whiteboard, put him in a bad mood.

‘The worst thing about it is that that was the day my voice was really bad…I didn’t really say ‘bye’ to anyone, I was in such a bad mood…’

Later on Friday, after performing three sell out shows in Sydney, Sheeran took to the stage for an intimate rooftop gig of just 200 fans for rival radio station 2DayFM.

The ‘World Famous Rooftop’ gig was hosted by new breakfast hosts Dan And Maz who introduced the ginger haired musician to an audience of lucky competition winners.

He kept his casual look intact, as he appeared in front of the small, but passionate crowd in a plain white T-shirt and blue skinny jeans.

His hair remained scruffy as he showed off his tattooed arms while sporting bright red high top sneakers.
He performed a number of his hit songs on his trusty acoustic guitar in front of three large spotlights positioned behind him.

Sheeran posed for photos with the breakfast hosts and he also gave one lucky fan a memorable photo, as he snapped a selfie of himself in front of the packed room using her phone.
