Ed Sheeran shared the news of his diagnosis on one of his Instagram stories. His post read, "Hey guys. Quick note to tell you that I've sadly tested positive for Covid, so I'm now self-isolating and following government guidelines. It means that I'm now unable to plough ahead with any in person commitments for now, so I'll be doing as many of my planned interviews/performances I can from my house. Apologies to anyone I've let down. Be safe everyone." The news comes ahead of his appearance on the 'Saturday Night Live' show on November 6.
