Ed Sheeran has agreed to perform on 'Strictly Come Dancing' and 'The X Factor' in December - despite breaking his wrist
Ed Sheeran is set to perform on 'Strictly Come Dancing' and 'The X Factor'.
The 'Perfect' hitmaker has postponed his tour after he was involved in a bicycle accident earlier this month, which left him with a broken elbow, a bust right wrist and damaged ribs, but, despite having both his arms strapped up to the point he can't even brush his teeth by himself, he's agreed to sing during the final of the ITV show on December 2 before closing the ballroom and latin competition two weeks later
A source told The Sun newspaper: "No one has ever played both finals in the same year but neither show wanted to miss out on nabbing the year's biggest-selling singer. "'Strictly Come Dancing' will be keeping a close eye on what Ed brings to 'X Factor' and are promising his stint on their finale will be even bigger and better. Both are just praying he makes a full recovery in time."
The 26-year-old singer has made no secret of the fact he's a fan of both shows - despite them being rivals - as he penned the winner's song 'When Christmas Comes Around', which reached Number 3 in the charts, for 'X Factor' champion Matt Terry last year.
He's also desperate to slip into some sexy crystal-embellished Lycra in the near future and show people his fancy footwork and snake hips on 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
Meanwhile, the flame-haired hunk announced that he'd axed his shows in Taipei, Osaka, Seoul, Tokyo and Hong Kong upon doctors' orders after they said he might never play the guitar again if he "put any more stress on it".
