Singer/songwriter Ed Sheeran performed a special gig on the set of British soap opera Coronation Street this week (beg23Jun14).

The A Team hitmaker headed to Manchester, England to take part in the special concert on Tuesday (24Jun14) at the studio which housed the Tv drama up until December (13), when it was closed and transformed into a tourist attraction.

Sheeran posed for pictures with numerous stars of the show before playing a 40 minute-long gig in a set which was previously seen on screen as a character's living room.

Video footage taken during the gig shows Sheeran interacting with the crowd and telling them, "Thanks very much for having me. I hope you had a fabulous time."
