Singer Ed Sheeran has tested positive for Covid-19.
"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," he wrote on Instagram. "Apologies to anyone I've let down. Be safe everyone x."
He is about to release his new album and go on a promotional tour.
He is scheduled to would perform as the musical guest on Saturday Night Live on Nov. 6 opposite Kieran Culkin. The show is reportedly trying to find a backup in case he cannot perform. A source told Page Six Saturday Night Live is searching for “another singer who appeals to the same demo,” the source says, someone like Shawn Mendes or Justin Bieber.
Sheeran did not share whether he has received the Covid-19 vaccine.
