Ed Sheeran - Ed Sheeran Sheds The Pounds For Sir Elton Charity Shoot
British singer Ed Sheeran has shed 42 pounds (19 kilograms) to pose naked for Sir Elton John's charity.
The A Team hitmaker agreed to take part in a photoshoot to promote the Rocket Man's Aids Foundation, and he's embarked on a drastic diet to ensure he's looking his best.
Sheeran says, "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 was 14 stone in January and I'm now 11 (stone). 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 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."
