The Galway Girl and Shape of You star shared a picture of his arm in a cast on Instagram Monday morning.

It is understood he was treated for his injuries in Suffolk, at Ipswich Hospital.

Asked what his plans were for further live dates at tonight’s Q Awards, he said: “It’s kind of up to my management and agent.

“I’m a one man show. I don’t have a band it’s just me with a guitar and a loop pedal so there’s not going to be much I can do.”

He added: “I’m not going to short-change fans as well. If you come to see a show it should be the show you paid to see.”

The former Thomas Mills High School pupil laughed off suggestions he could get fellow stars to sign his cast at the showbiz bash, and said the pain he was in was similar to getting a tattoo.

Ed was up for three Q Awards at tonight’s ceremony at the Camden Roundhouse, north London.

He went up against Liam Gallagher, Stormzy, St Vincent and Lana Del Rey in the best solo artist category and was also up for best track for Shape Of You.
