Between the appearance on Home and Away, and being advised by his throat doctor to only communicate via a whiteboard, it's all go for Ed Sheeran of late.

According to, Ed has split from his girlfriend of approximately 14 months, Athina Andrelos - and getting spectacularly hammered after the BRIT Awards didn't help matters.

A source speaking exclusively to the magazine said: "The final straw was at the after-party. It was a combination of Ed drinking too much and him being unable to deal with a girl that kept bothering them that night. The next day, when Athina drove Ed to the airport, they spoke about everything and they decided to take a break because it was unfair on both of them."

One can only imagine how grim that was for Ed; you're hanging out of your mind, you have to get on a plane because you're embarking on a tour and then you split up with your girlfriend. That's a special kind of 'fear' right there.

If you too imagined that Ed wrote Thinking Out Loud for Athina; don't worry, they may just be "on a break."

The full story of Ed's reported split from his girlfriend is in Heat Magazine now.
