Ed Sheeran is no longer tempted to appear on 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
The 23-year-old singer has confessed he was interested in the BBC One ballroom dancing competition before he starred in the music video to his hit single 'Thinking Out Loud' as he wanted to learn to dance, but now insists he'd have no reason to appear.
He explained: "I think for me Strictly was tempting before I'd done [the Thinking Out Loud video] just to learn how to dance and that would be the only reality show that would be tempting.
"I could learn how to dance and that would be a thing to do ... Now I've done it there's nothing left to prove for me. I've done it, I know it was hard. I don't think I could do it week in and week out and be judged on it."
The 'Sing' hitmaker impressed fans with his moves alongside professional dancer Brittany Cherry when the video to his Number 1 single was released earlier this year and he's confessed he always knew it would go down well.
He told Yahoo Celebrity: "I knew the song could be big if it had the right viral push. To get songs on radio now they have to be buzzing on the internet before so I thought that if I do a music video that I'm not only in but I'm doing something that everyone will talk about and share and be like, 'How did he learn this?' Then it would push the song out and for me it's the most important song on the album.
"It's the song that is selling the album and breaking me in different countries so I wanted it to have a music video that would do the same. It's definitely aimed towards a target audience."
