Just a few days ago Ed Sheeran’s ‘Shape of You’ hit 1 billion streams on Spotify.
Now he has earned another accolade as he has been awarded an MBE (Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire).
The 26-year-old singer-songwriter, released his third album, ÷ (Divide), earlier this year, and it topped the British and US charts.
Other stars to be honoured in this year’s awards are Billy Connolly, who has been given a knighthood, and Gugu Mbatha-Raw, who got an MBE.
