Ed Sheeran has won so many awards he hands them out as party gifts to friends.
The 'Lego House' singer has won so many trophies - including two BRIT Awards, an Ivor Novello and two Q Awards - he has no more room for them at home, so leaves them stacked by his front door so friends can grab them as they leave.
He is quoted by the Daily Star newspaper as saying: "There are only so many you can put out on the wall without looking like a douche bag.
"So I prefer for my friends to celebrate my success as well and have it in their living room. All of my friends have them."
It also recently emerged that Ed and his friend Taylor Swift, 23, wrote their hit 'Everything Has Changed' while hanging out on a trampoline.
She said: "Me and Ed Sheeran wrote 'Everything Has Changed' sitting on a trampoline! We loved it so much that we ended up recording it as a duet."
Ed and Taylor have also joked if they each win at the 2013 MTV Music Video Awards (VMAs) they will celebrate by dressing up as rappers.
