Suffolk’s Ed Sheeran will take over Glastonbury Festival tonight as he headlines the final night of the five-day event.

The Divide star will perform on the famous Pyramid main stage following acts from the likes of Biffy Clyro and Laura Marling.

Sheeran, 26, is due to start his set at 9.45pm and finish at 11.15pm. It is the shortest set of all the headliners. From 6pm until midnight, Glastonbury will be live on BBC Two, as well as the BBC iPlayer.

There are rumours that Sheeran might have a special guest or two join him on stage, including Stormzy. The two artists have performed live on several occasions, including at this year’s BRIT Awards.

Sheeran is expected to play ballads from all three of his albums.
