Ed Sheeran - Ed Sheeran stayed rent free at Courteney Cox's house
Ed Sheeran paid for his stay at Courteney Cox's Malibu beach house with cups of tea during his time in the States last year.
Ed Sheeran did housework to stay at Courteney Cox's Malibu beach house rent free.
The 'Drunk' singer lived in the 'Cougar Town' star's holiday home for several months last year and while he didn't have to pay his famous landlady for her hospitality, he made sure he helped out around the home and made tea for the actress.
He told The Sun newspaper: ''There was no rent but I made the bed and cups of tea and things like that.
''If you're staying at your friend's house, you should treat it like your own.
''Well, actually, that's a lie - because I don't make my own bed at home.''
The 23-year-old singer also set Courteney up with his pal Johnny McDaid, Snow Patrol's piano player and guitarist, after the pair met up in October.
And he confirmed the loved-up couple are happy together but there might not be wedding bells just yet.
Ed continued: ''I'm not sure about buying a hat yet, who knows?
''But I will say I've never seen either of them happier. It's great to see people you love in love.''
Ed has returned to the UK after writing and recording his upcoming second album in the US and he teased a possible release date for the follow-up to his 2011 debut '+' on Twitter.
He posted: ''7/4/14 (sic)'', which could have meant either April 7 in the UK or July 4 in the States.
Ed clarified: ''All the Yanks think it's July 4. It's actually April 7, but that's not the date the album is coming out, it's just the day things start to happen.''
The singer-songwriter is kicking off the Teenage Cancer Trust gigs today (24.03.14) at the Royal Albert Hall and has promised the show will be his ''last ever'' set featuring mainly tracks from his first album.
He added: ''I'm going to do an old album set. It will be the last ever gig I do that one. Fans don't want to have two hours of new material, but there will be a couple of new ones.''
