In his book, “Ed Sheeran: A Visual Journey”, Ed Sheeran said that he spent nights in 2008 with no place to stay, even having to sleep on the Central Line outside Buckingham Palace. However, in subsequent interviews, he said that he didn’t officially consider himself homeless but was simply “relying on the kindness of friends”. He said, “I knew where I could get a bed at a certain time of night and I knew who I could call at any time to get a floor to sleep on.” But it sounds sort of homeless to us!
