Ed Sheeran to appear on Home and Away
ED SHEERAN'S role in Australian soap Home and Away has been revealed ahead of the singer's appearance on the small screen.
The Make It Rain singer filmed his scenes while on tour Down Under earlier this year, and now his appearance is about to air in Australia.
Sheeran will play Teddy, one of the children Marilyn Chambers - played by Emily Symons - was nanny to when she lived in Britain.
He visits Summer Bay and surprises everyone when he turns out to be chart-topping singer Sheeran, treating them to a special performance.
Sheeran previously said of his cameo in Home and Away: "It's an Australian institution. It's always on in my local chip shop.
"I got asked to do it and it sounded like it could be fun. I'm sure if Emmerdale or EastEnders ever ask me in England I would do that as well."
Alec Snow, who plays Matt Page in the soap, said: "It was an awesome experience filming with Ed because he seemed like a really down-to-earth, nice guy that genuinely wanted to be there."
Sheeran's cameo is expected to air on RTE2 in a few months.
