Singer songwriter Ed Sheeran helped to give a couple a moment they will remember forever after he stopped his concert to allow a man to propose to his girlfriend.
The superstar was in the middle of performing his worldwide number one hit ‘Perfect’ but didn’t feel the need for all the attention to be on him when he caught something out of the corner of his eye.
He had seen one of his fans, Matthew Reed, go down on one knee in the front row.
Sheeran stopped playing and looked over to see what was going on. He told the rest of the audience: “Two seconds. Can everyone just be quiet, so this man can ask a question?”
Reed proposed to his girlfriend of four years, Rebecca, and Sheeran asked: “Has she said yes?”
Thankfully Rebecca did say yes much to the delight of the crowd and Sheeran who said ‘fantastic’ before carrying on with his song.
Care worker Reed had been planning to propose ever since he won tickets for Monday night’s Heart Live with Ed Sheeran show.
Take a look at the video below.
