Ed Sheeran may be put off opening gifts from fans forever

Ed Sheeran has revealed that the worst gift a fan ever gave him was a cake filled with strands of hair.

Singer Ed, who's currently in the US preparing for his upcoming tour of North America, got a nasty surprise when he found the extra ingredient after he'd already started munching on the stomach-churning present.

'Someone cooked it in a cake, a big clump of hair. Don't ask me how I found it out... I tried to eat it,' says Ed, 21.

'I thought: "It's very sweet to be given a cake. I shall eat the cake." Then I found the clump.'

Ever since his shock, Ed has worried the crazy fan might turn to try and meet him.

'I was half expecting her to track me down and be like: "I'm inside you now!", be proper stalker-ish,' Ed tells The Sun.
