Sheeran's talking ban - singing still allowed, to the dismay of some
Ed Sheeran has been banned from talking and can only communicate by using a white board.
The 'A-Team' hitmaker has been advised against speaking to anyone by his doctor to save his voice in between shows on his current world tour, and joked it could be "interesting" attempting to converse by writing out everything he wants to say.
He wrote on Twitter: "Been told by the vocal doc not to talk at all between shows and they're giving me a white board to communicate with, could prove interesting (sic)"
But Ed may not have done his voice any good last Friday as he indulged in a curry after performing in Brisbane, Australia.
He tweeted: "Wrecked, gonna have myself a curry and watch a movie (sic)"
Despite his voice issues, the star has been making waves during his time on tour Down Under and is to appear in Australian-based soap 'Home and Away'.
A post on the programme's official Facebook page has confirmed the flame-haired star has filmed a cameo in the show.
The message read: "Look who's been spotted in Summer Bay!
"Yep, your eyes do not deceive you, world renowned singer/songwriter, Ed Sheeran, recently visited the Palm Beach and Eveleigh sets of Channel 5's Home and Away to film scenes for an upcoming episode.
"He will appear as himself in the series, but storyline details about what brings Ed to Summer Bay are being kept under wraps for now.
"Ed's episode will screen later this year."
The singer has also admitted he would love to star in further soaps closer to home.
Speaking about 'Home and Away' he said: "It's an Australian institution. It's always on in my local chip shop.
"I got asked to do it and it sounded like it could be fun. I did 'Shortland Street' in New Zealand as well and I'm sure if 'Emmerdale' or 'EastEnders' ever ask me in England I would do that as well.
"I have got a point where I really, really don't care what people think so I'm doing stuff because I enjoy it now rather than because it might be cool. I am just in it for fun."
