Although he is a superstar in his own right, Ed Sheeran delighted fans after he teamed up with Spice Girls singer Emma Bunton for a special duet this week. Appearing on the 90s pop sensation's Heart radio show, the 25-year-old took out his guitar to sing an acoustic version of the 2000 classic, Goodbye.

After the rendition, Ed confessed: "I could be Ginger Spice!" - to which Emma aka Baby Spice agreed: "You could so be Ginger Spice." Ed later joked: "If you get me the Union Jack dress, I could squeeze into that."

Meanwhile, the singer/songwriter has just released his third studio album, and has been busy promoting two of his comeback singles Castle On The Hill and Shape Of You - his first releases since 2015. Speaking about his monumental comeback, Ed said: "Hello 2017! I've been working hard on the new material and I hope you can be as excited about it as I am. I really wanted to show two different sides to my music that I'm equally as passionate about and I just knew I wanted to roll with two songs at the same time. I'm absolutely buzzing to be back."
