It was not long ago that Ed Sheeran announced his weight loss bet with Sam Smith and it seems that not only Sam has seen some incredible results.
Singer Ed Sheeran has spoken about his dramatic 26kg weight loss while being interviewed in Australia by Peter Stefanovic for the show 60 Minutes Australia.
During the fun and sometimes risqué interview, Ed describes himself as “fat” as he digs into a Subway meal and the singer who is known for usually being shy and speaking through his song lyrics, was able to use a few choice words when he spoke about his own personal weight loss journey
Ed Sheeran told Peter Stefanovic he was once a lot heavier than he is now and said to the reporter during the Perth leg of his tour: ‘I’ve lost a lot of weight. I was 15 stone (95kg) and now I’m 11 (69kg)…’
The relaxed demeanour of Ed came across as the interview developed and Ed said he had no intentions of letting fame get away with him and demonstrated this by going into a Subway chain store for a spot of lunch.
As the pair entered the shop, Pete was still shocked that he’s standing in a Subway beside Ed who is ready to order: ‘This dovetails into Ed Sheeran, a man of the people right?’
According to The Express, possibly bewildered by Pete’s constant remarks about him being shockingly ‘normal’, the British crooner replied: No, just Ed Sheeran, fat c*** I think.’
This led to much laughter and chines from Pete the interviewer of ‘Fat man, fat man!’ who then added: ‘You’re not even fat, what are you talking about?’
There was no hint from Ed as to how he has managed to lose so much weight in a short time, unlike his weight loss buddy Sam Smith who was happy to shout about learning a new way to think about food to help him drop a good few pounds.
As yet we still do not know who has won the weight loss challenge between Ed Sheeran and Sam Smith but what is for certain is that both men have come a long way and many will be surprised by just how dedicated to weight loss the two singing super stars have been.
It shows that it is not only female celebrities that battle with their weight and appearance, men in the spotlight are also striving to slim down and these two young stars have proved that even when you are at the top of your career weight loss is still a real challenge.
