Ed Sheeran received a call from the government while on a podcast.
The ‘Bad Habits’ hitmaker was shooting with the ‘Harry Potter’ stars Oliver and James Phelps for their Normal not Normal podcast when he had to resign after an urgent call.
After receiving the call, he had continued filming for a brief moment and you could say, “Wait, wait, wait. Government, government.”
Ed was escorted on the call by his manager, Stuart Camp, who joked that it was “like calling from your teacher” when Ed finally returned. He announced that he had been called to see if he had been quarantined after recently returning to the UK from the US, where he was busy promoting his new single after a couple of years on hiatus.
James joked, “I was just having visions when you went into hiding with your boyfriend and called your mother to ask if you were alone.”
Ed had previously revealed his idea of a “perfect evening” to be in bed by 8:30 pm.
The singer, who has 10-month-old Lyra with her wife, Cherry Seaborn, said, “The other day my wife was in LA and we had a Mexican takeaway and were in bed at 8:30 pm. It was like the perfect evening.
“My work is very structured now. I work from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. I go to work at 9 a.m. and finish at 5 p.m. no matter what. Some producers work crazy hours and I tell them, ‘What if you don’t show up at 9 a.m.? or between 9 and 10 am I’m free ‘. Either we work or we don’t work. Then after six months I wanted to be present, I wanted to get structure. It was really healing. “
