Ed Sheeran might be best known for his music, but the thing he’s probably second-best known for is buying his pals giant penises for a laugh.
The singer, 31, began by buying singer Anne-Marie a giant phallic sex toy for her birthday, with the 2002 star revealing on Celebrity Juice in 2018: ‘He got me the biggest dildo available.
‘He said, “I’ve got a present for you, come in here!” and I was like, “don’t tell me it’s a dildo?” And it was…’
Last year, he also gifted Sir Elton John a colossal marble penis, which the singer had to hide in his house due to having two young sons.
He revealed on Hit 109.9’s Carrie and Tommy Show last year: ‘For my birthday this year, he gave me a giant marble penis.
‘I don’t know if that’s because I’ve always been a p***k or what. It’s really big, it’s beautifully made.’
After news of the gift went viral, pretty much everyone Ed meets has been clamouring to receive one of their own.
He revealed on Hits Radio: ‘I did two interviews in Australia with two co-hosts and they all wanted marble penises so we’ve just had four made and been sent out to Australia.’
Presenter James Barr told him: ‘Wait, hold on a second. If there’s a queue, I would also like a marble penis.’
Six months after their interview, James has revealed that Ed was true to his word and did send him a phallic statue of his own, as a giant penis sculpture covered in diamantes was delivered by a careful courier who made sure it was undamaged.
He nicknamed the statue ‘Head Sheeran’ because… well, we don’t need to explain why.
Ed has got form for his inappropriate gifts, having previously bought Friends star Courteney Cox a leather gimp mask, by pranking her Amazon Alexa into ordering one.
He explained: ‘So, she walks out the room, and I go, “Alexa, order me a leather gimp mask”.
‘Unbeknownst to me, Courteney’s assistant opened the post, and she finds this mask and instantly goes, “Oh, I don’t think I was meant to see that,” and leaves it on Courteney’s bed.
‘Anyway, she found out the story, and now every time I go back there, I order her another gimp mask.
‘And she has maybe 12, and I hide them in people’s bedrooms. So they’ll go in a drawer, and they’ll just find this leather S&M mask.’
