Rumours about an appearance by the popular UK artist had been circulating on social media, however no confirmation had been made.

Twitter users had suggested sightings of Stormzy in Nandos in Ipswich but they were again unconfirmed.

Stormzy came out with Ed Sheeran for his encore and performed the Shape of You in front of the 40,000 adoring fan at Chantry Park during the third of four huge concerts in his home county.

The song's video features footage of the pair in fields which some suggest are in Suffolk.
