Ed will take his clothes off for the Elton John Foundation

Ed Sheeran is signed to Sir Elton John‘s Rocket Management and Elt‘s his mentor.

Ed, 21, is still in awe of his boss.

Elton walked in and said: “Where’s Ed Sheeran?” I was like: “F***ing hell – he knows my name!” recalls the red-haired star.

‘It’s surreal, growing up listening to his music and now he’s singing my praises, ringing me up and helping my career.’

Ed has also agreed to pose naked to raise funds for the Elton John Foundation.

‘I was 14st and now I’m 11st. I was a bit flabby, to be fair, but I’ve stopped drinking,’ says Ed.

‘I went to a place called Da Ivo, in Venice, Italy. Elton John called me and said: “I’ve booked you the best table in Venice and you need to go there.”

‘When I wanted my steak well done and ordered orange juice, they looked at me as if I was mental.’
