Ed Sheeran paid in cooking lessons by Gordon Ramsay after he performs at Strictly star Tilly's birthday party

ED Sheeran has revealed he had cooking lessons from Gordon Ramsay, as payment for performing at his Strictly star daughter Tilly’s 18th birthday party.

The pop favourite performed a five-song set at the James Bond-themed party in November 2019 but has now admitted he only did it so that Gordon would come over and show him and his wife Cherry how to make a beef wellington and apple pie.

Ed said: “I don’t like people saying, ‘Hey here is a chunk of money, come and play two songs at this,’ whether it be a wedding or whatever.

“What happened was he emailed me and said, ‘What would the fee be?’

“And I said, ‘You know what? Why I don’t trade your skill for my skill.

“You come around and give me a cooking lesson and I’ll play your daughter’s 18th.’”

Speaking on the radio in the US, Ed – who will release his Elton John collaboration Merry Christmas tomorrow – said: “He came around and taught me and my wife how to cook beef wellington and apple tarte tatin.

“It was a posh apple pie and it was really nice.”
