Ed Sheeran wants to get married and have children.

The 'A Team' singer is grateful for his success but says it has left him with no social life, and so he already has a long term plan of settling down and doing "normal" things.

He said: "I'd like to have kids and a wife and, you know, drop them off at school and do normal things rather than constantly being on tour.

"Because I'm young now and I haven't really got a social life. This is all I do. It's the best job in the world, but I'll get to the point where there's more to life than work."

On the occasions when he does get time off, Ed, 21, gets recognised wherever he goes because of his distinctive ginger hair.

He said: "I have bright ginger hair. I went to Nando's with Tinie Tempah the other day. Tinie had a beanie hat on and he didn't have his glasses on.

"We sat down and people were coming up to me and ignoring him. I was looking at him going, 'Do they know who you are?'

"And at one point he just put his glasses on and everyone was like, 'Oh s**t, it's Tinie Tempah!' It was kind of like Superman wearing a suit and then ripping it off.

"But sadly, I can't shave my hair off every day and beanie hats don't really work for me. I have tufts. They stick out."
