Ed Sheeran is stepping away from the spotlight to spend more time with his new wife Cherry Seaborn.

The singer has revealed he is taking an extended break from music after finishing up his Divide World Tour.

Ed made the announcement on stage at Ipswitch's Chantry Park on Monday night.

"As you may or not know, I've been on the Divide tour for over two years now and this is the last day of the whole thing.

"There is something very bittersweet about it. I love that you guys are here and we are ending it in Ipswich. This is my last gig for probably 18 months.

"We've played all around the world. Glastonbury, Wembley Stadium. All these amazing venues, America, New Zealand, Australia, Asia, South America - it's been a wild one."

He added: "I was told before I came on that now at the end of this tour I've played to nine million people around the world. It is the biggest tour ever.

"It's been an emotional day for a lot of people backstage. It kind of feels like, in a weird way, that you're breaking up with a girlfriend that you've been with for years.

Ed went on to thank his fans and his team on the tour before closing the show.

"I want to say thank you to everyone on this tour. Thank you to everyone who has given me a chance. This is my last song. I wrote this when I was 15 years old. See you in a few years' time. Thank you."

Back in June, Ed - who is understood to have secretly married his childhood sweetheart, Cherry, last December - revealed the couple are planning to start a family.

"I'm starting a life with Cherry. I can't spend the next 20 years on the road

"Kids would be the different thing. I wouldn't mind sacrificing for them.

"If someone told me you can't tour again for the next ten years if you have kids that is fine, because that is what I have signed up for.

"I've already achieved more than I thought I would, so now I'm just trying to have fun."

We hope Ed enjoys some well deserved time off!
