The singer lodged with Courteney for a few months

Ed Sheeran has revealed that his pal Courteney Cox let him stay at her home for free recently.

The singer, 23, moved into 49-year-old Courteney‘s Malibu beach house for a few months last year but the kind Friends star never asked him to pay for his room.

‘There was no rent but I made the bed and cups of teas and things like that,’ says Ed.

‘If you’re staying round your friend’s house, you should treat it like your own. Well, actually, that’s a lie – I don’t make my own bed at home.’

Suffolk-raised Ed – who’s now back in the UK – has been close to Courteney for a while and introduced the actress to her boyfriend Johnny McDaid.

David Arquette‘s ex-wife and Snow Patrol rocker Johnny, 37, have been together since last year and Ed is thrilled that their relationship is going so well.

‘Not sure having to buy a hat yet, who knows?’ Ed tells The Sun.

‘But I will say I’ve never seen either of them happier. It’s great to see two people you love in love.’
