Ed and Harry have a love of Lego

Since dropping out of school aged 16, Ed Sheeran‘s gone from posting music online and sleeping on fans’ sofas to a No 1 album and selling 78,000 tickets for his latest tour.

And next week could the biggest in his life – he turns 21 just before the Brit Awards, where he has four nominations.

He’ll also catch up with his celeb BBF Harry Styles.

The two met when Ed used to bunk down on One Direction‘s guitarist’s sofa.

‘I’d wake up on a sofa sometimes with Harry on the other sofa. We developed a friendship,’ says Ed.

Ed and Harry celebrate special occasions by, erm, building Lego.

‘When I went to No 1, I bought a Lego Star Wars Millennium Falcon,’ reveals the red-headed star.

‘Harry bought me the Imperial Star Destroyer and we stayed up until about 3am making it.’
