Ed Sheeran has recorded a special video for The Great British Bake Off favourite, Val. The keen baker, who stole hearts on the popular food show with her upbeat personality and unusual baking style, regularly tweets the singer about her latest creations. Val previously tweeted Ed, writing: "I'm making a ginger pudding, I always called it a ginger log but do you think @edsheeran would be upset if I named it after him?" She shared another video of herself making sausage rolls while listening to Ed, and wrote: "Being reflective Ed Sheeran's lyrics remind me that nothing ever changes , we all think we are the only ones to ever feel love loss not so." In the video, she says: "No matter how old you get you can still listen to music like this, and it makes you smile."

I love you, I think you're wonderful and let's cook sometime!" Val shared the video, adding: "Thanks @edsheeran for your kind comment I will bake for you when you have a spare slot in your time table. Not at Glasto this year am in NY."
