HE almost had the perfect year… Picking up two Brit awards, becoming iTunes most downloaded artist and Spotify’s most streamed, Ed Sheeran has rounded the year off by bursting an eardrum.

The 24-year-old British singer has announced that he will undergo surgery after jumping off a yacht in the south of Spain and rupturing his eardrum.

The flame-haired heartthrob said the incident happened during the summer while he was holidaying with friends.

His surgery will take place in January after his tour of New Zealand.
