Ed Sheeran recalls getting locked outside his hotel naked

Ed Sheeran has recalled a humiliating moment when he locked himself out of his hotel room while totally naked.

The Thinking Out Loud star had been enjoying a few drinks and then drunkenly exited his hotel room when he thought he was entering the bathroom.

He told the Therapuss with Jake Shane podcast, "I was drinking Cafe Patron liqueur and went to bed. I sleep naked - I enjoy the freedom it brings to my life.

"I got up in the middle of the night to take a p**s and opened the toilet door and I walked out. Suddenly the door closed and I opened my eyes and I was in the corridor completely naked without a key to my room. I was just standing there with CCTV, like, 'F***'. I was looking around and thinking, 'How do I get out of this?'"

Fortunately, the chart-topping singer was able to find a degree of cover and make his way to the reception of the hotel for help.

He explained, "Someone's room service tray was outside their room with a napkin, so I took the napkin and covered my junk and went into the lobby of the hotel, all the way down.

"This was four o'clock in the morning and no one was there apart from someone who looked at me, and I was playing that weekend, and I was like, 'Can you please not tell anyone?'"

He added, "They came up and let me in my room and my security guard wiped the footage."
