Ed Sheeran has confirmed that he will be posing naked for a calendar in support of the Elton John AIDS Foundation, with only a bowler hat covering his private parts.

But the 20-year-old isn’t the most confident guy. He’s used the calender as motivation to hit the gym and lose those extra pounds. He told The Sun newspaper:

I’m not a very confident guy when it comes to taking my clothes off, I was 14 stone and I’m now 11. It’s going to be the first time that I feel comfortable on screen. I stopped drinking and got a personal trainer. I was a bit flabby, to be fair. I moved out when I was 16 to a place above a pub with a kebab shop where I ate and drank and just got a bit chubby. The photos are all going to be part of a catalogue that is going to be sold to raise money. A lot of people are doing it. So ladies, lock up your daughters.

Ermmm we won’t lock up our daughters just yet, but we can’t wait to see Ed’s new look.
