Ed Sheeran sings with startled fan on the Toy Show
Singing star Ed Sheeran, who’s already a favourite adopted son in Ireland, boosted his popularity even more when he flew over specially to surprise one of his fans on the Toy Show on Irish TV.
The show features children showing off some of their favourite toys to presenter Ryan Tubridy.
Aimee Keogh came on to demonstrate a game on Playstation which allows fans to sing along with their favourite stars. After some playful banter with Tubridy, she began singing along to an Ed Sheeran video.
She had barely got going when Sheeran himself came on stage to surprise her, getting a rapturous welcome from the audience. The British star, who boasts Irish grandparents, then started singing along with Aimee in an impromptu duet. Aimee said: “I’m hysterical. Oh my God!”
Sheeran then presented her with gifts including a Christmas jumper and a Ted Sheeran teddy bear. But best of all, he then offered to fly Aimee and her family over to London to see one of his sell-out shows at the 02 Arena.
Sheeran then complimented the Toy Show and says there’s nothing like in England and he’d like to bring it over. Tubridy jokes: “Oh no it’s Irish, you can’t have it.”
If you have Ed Sheeran on a show you have to take the opportunity to get him perform live. He duly obliged by grabbing a guitar and singing Thinking Out Loud. After a minute or so, Aimee then joins him for another duet, and both were rewarded with a standing ovation from the delighted audience.
