Speaking to OfficialCharts.com, Ed said: “I’m incredibly chuffed that they’ve gone straight in at Number 1 and 2 today. Both tracks mean a huge amount to me so it really is amazing to see them go to the top of the chart together on the first week. I can’t wait for everyone to hear the rest of the album in March!”

Both ‘Shape Of You’ and ‘Castle on the Hill’ have both also broken the previous one-week streaming record held Drake’s One Dance, which racked up 8.9 million plays in one week last summer.
