Ed Sheeran Offers To Perform At Jacinda Ardern's Wedding

Ed Sheeran has offered to perform at the wedding between New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and Clarke Gayford.

People all around the world would kill to have 'The Shape of You' singer even rock up to their nuptials, let alone do a few songs for them.

However, there are few who have a bond like Sheeran and Ardern.

The Prime Minister was interviewed by Kiwi radio hosts Jono and Ben on The Hits last week and Ms Ardern questioned if he would remember meeting her back in 2018.

Jacinda said: "See whether or not he remembers the scones - I pride myself on my cheese scones.

The radio hosts then got Sheeran on the programme ahead of the release of his new single 'Bad Habits' and they asked him about his relationship with the Kiwi leader.

"I loved the scones. She gave me a wonderful book as well that she'd written," he said.

But his praise didn't stop there.

Ed Sheeran was asked if he would perform at Ms Ardern and Mr Gayford's wedding and he said: "Do you know what, I would make myself available if I was free, to play her wedding. I think she's brilliant.

"I think that she is the best human being on earth. I know, like, politics is politics and people in New Zealand will have differences of opinion, but in England she is seen as just...it. We love her. I love her.

"I think she's what you need in a leader. New Zealand should be really proud...the whole world has looked at New Zealand and been like, these guys have got it right."

Sheeran has also revealed he would have called New Zealand home if he didn't have such strong ties to the UK.

He told ZM's Fletch, Vaughan, and Megan he was really close to getting a property on the North Island.

"I married a girl whose county I'm from, my parents are two minutes away, her parents are ten minutes away. All of our best friends live in the town, if I didn't have such roots in England I would have bought a house in Wellington 10 years ago," he explained.

He also gave Kiwi fans the best news they could ask for.

"Hopefully, fingers crossed, I'll be over there [New Zealand] by the end of the year," he told the ZM Breakfast hosts. "If all goes well, I'll be there by the end of the year."
