Ed Sheeran had been suspiciously quiet about the scar on his face that reportedly came at the hands of Princess Beatrice, and while he's still not going into detail about the incident, he has finally started talking about it.

Speaking to Absolute Radio, Sheeran said: "I got hit in the face and I was like, all right, OK, and then started carrying on and then I looked down at my shirt and it was just completely covered in blood."

"And everyone was kind of gaping open-mouthed at me. What have I got a nosebleed or something? What's happened?"

Of course, seeing as he won't (and probably can't) talk about the details and is being super light on the who and the when, what happened is left to our imagination but even that is pretty entertaining.

He does have one name he can mention though - James Blunt.

"James Blunt would like me to tell everyone that it was him and he was trying to reclaim his pop career by killing me... He actually told me to say that. I'm not being mean."

Well at least someone's got a sense of humour about it.
