Ed Sheeran is known the world over as everyone's favourite ginger. He doesn't really get involved in fame drama.

He always dresses like that guy you went to prom with in high school, looks like he'd never hurt a fly, and he's not exactly what you'd call the edgiest of characters.

We were determined to prove, though, that Ed Sheeran is an interesting guy so we compiled a list of the most interesting things about our main man Ed.  

1) He names his guitars. These names include Lloyd, Felix, Cyril, and Nigel.
