WATCH: Ed Sheeran stars in tomato ketchup advert

Ed Sheeran is a Grammy Award winner and can sell out stadiums around the world.

But he’s finally made his dream come true by starring in a commercial for tomato ketchup.

The Shape Of You hitmaker, 28, already has a tattoo of the Heinz logo on his arm and has posted about his love of tomato sauce for years on Instagram.

The new advert features the singer, a bottle of ketchup and one fancy plate of food.

In the clip, the ‘I Don’t Care’ hitmaker enters a swanky restaurant, before a waiter comes over to run him through the menu.

Doing the voiceover, Ed says: ‘Posh and fancy blah blah blah, farm-to-table blah blah blah, with a side of blah blah blah,’ taking a swipe at fine dining.

Noticing something is missing from the dish, Ed then removes a bottle of ketchup from his bag and puts a big dollop of the red stuff over his haute cuisine.

Explaining how the ad came about, Ed said: ‘Okay, so it actually happened. I sent a voice note to Heinz, and we made a whole tv spot around it. This is pretty much what I was aiming for in life.’

Fans have been left divided about the ad – with some claiming it’s beneath the singer, and others praising the commercial for its humour.
