Ed Sheeran reveals dirty past

Ed Sheeran never used to shower and would spend his days sat on a London Underground train going around one of the lines continuously because he didn't have anywhere else to stay.

Ed Sheeran never used to shower.

The 'Lego House' hitmaker - who is currently supporting Taylor Swift on her 'Red' tour - admits he would go days without washing when he began his quest to become a musician and would be forced to sit on a London Underground train all day as he had nowhere else to go.

Speaking to the Daily Star newspaper, he said: ''Sometimes when I didn't have a place to shower, I'd wait for the Tube to open up at 5am and sit on the Circle Line and go round and round. I wouldn't shower.

''I couch surfed and floor surfed sometimes. Once I was staying at this student house and had a shower but didn't have a towel.

''This lad had a Green Day poster, I literally just scraped the water off with it.''

The 22-year-old singer - who has been romantically linked to Selena Gomez - claims since becoming a global star, his cleanliness has improved.

He said: ''Now, I shower every day.''

Ed - who has won two BRIT Awards - previously admitted he almost didn't make it into the music business because industry chiefs knocked him back for being ''chubby and ginger''.

He said: ''Every single label I had gone to at the time had told me this song wasn't a hit. They said this song wouldn't work.

''And the fact that I was slightly chubby and ginger was not a good 'marketing tool' for them.''
