Ed Sheeran Poses Naked for Charity

Singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran has revealed that Sir Elton John convinced him to pose naked for his AIDS charity after losing 3 stone in weight since the beginning of the year. 

Speaking to BBC's Newsbeat, the 'You Need Me, I Don't Need You' hitmaker explained that while he's never been that confident without his clothes on he decided to take part in the exciting photo shoot because he can now use his celebrity for a good cause:

"I'm not a very confident guy when it comes to taking clothes off. I've been persuaded for Elton John's charity to do a naked photo shoot. So ladies, lock up your daughters. I think it's all going to be part of a catalogue that's going to be sold to raise money. A lot of people are doing it."

Talking about his inspiring weight loss and motivation to get fit, Sheeran added: "I was 14 stone in January and I'm now 11. It's going to be the first time that I feel comfortable on screen."

"I stopped drinking and got a personal trainer. I was a bit flabby to be fair. I moved out at 16 from above a pub with a kebab shop where I ate and drank and just got a bit chubby."
