The Sun reports that the English singer-songwriter had a chat with an American self-help book publisher where he talked about turning to junk food and alcohol to help him cope with the struggles of being a pop star.

Ed shared: "I have a very addictive personality. Very, very addictive personality." He also said that he noticed the parallels between him and music icon Elton John when he read his autobiography. "He would be like, ‘I would just go on an ice cream binge and eat four fucking desserts until I throw it up’, and I was like, 'I’ve done that before.'”
