WE hope Ed Sheeran’s campfire building skills are up to scratch, as he’s just been announced as the next “Desert Island Discs” castaway.
The singer will guest on the long-running BBC Radio 4 program when it returns for its new series next month.
Sheeran has already recorded his appearance, which will air May 7, with presenter Kirsty Young.
He will choose the eight pieces of music he would most want to have with him if he was stranded on an island.
Sheeran has been going from strength to strength this year, with his latest album “Divide” topping the charts and its lead single “Shape of You” enjoying a 13-week reign at number one.
“Desert Island Discs” has been running for 75 years — an anniversary it celebrated in January with an appearance from David Beckham.
