We're not talking 'magic beans' by the by, rather actual beanbags. Every heavily set person/pregnant woman's nemesis... Ed's only tried them the once mind - pills, that is. Given he bought multiple beanbags while off his box on ectasy we're guessing it was his first time trying out them too.

The singer insists he has only tried the drug once, while at a wedding in Ibiza last year, and the biggest impact it had on him was developing an obsession with the comfy cushion which saw him order six online after "falling in love with a beanbag." At least he was sure it was a beanbag. 

And that's all the info we have on that. For more details on Ed's love for giant bags, get yourself a copy of Q Magazine. Until then, you'll just have to make do with the mental image of Ed pawing at a beanbag while mumbling sweet nothings into its zip. 

The 23-year-old singer also revealed he gave up smoking marijuana 18 months ago and last had some with a certain rapper.

He recalled to Q magazine: "The last time was with The Game in LA. I thought, 'When in Rome'."

Ed has been dating Athina Andrelos (bottom left) for almost a year and admits he prefers being in a relationship because he is "no good" at casual sex - despite hanging out with Harry Styles (that's him on the right there).

He said: 'I'm not good at it, because I'm rubbish at chatting women up. I really am. That's something you learn at school and I was never that guy. Girls weren't interested, I still don't know how to do it. I'm a lot better in a relationship, which is rewarding, not just a 10-second feeling... in my case."

The Drunk singer believes the key to his popularity is he relates to the 'geek' in everyone.

He said: "Everyone's a geek in some way. Even the beautiful people. We're all weird. Some people can pretend they're not. But we are all f***ing weird."
