Ed Sheeran has opened up about his experiences at primary school in a recent interview with DJ Nihal and rapper Dave.

"I hated primary school with a passion; I cried every day. I'm ginger, so I was instantly ripped into from the day I started school - ginger, had a stutter, and wore huge glasses... Just a bit odd." the singer said.

"I have always looked a little bit quirky and I never had much luck with girls. It was always like I looked a bit weird and then when I started playing music every time I would do a gig everyone was like 'oh it's the ginger guy with the small guitar' and you get remembered for that."

He went on to say that when he got to high school, he really hit his stride.

"And then I got to high school and started playing guitar, I joined a band and music is just one of these things which gives you confidence and you're suddenly like 'wow I can actually do something well'," he finished.

Just goes to show that even though Ed is one of the biggest stars in the world - he had a pretty normal upbringing.
