Seriously! I have proof! I am really a big fan!” she said.

Kirthana Kuhendaran, 18, arrived at the venue at 8.30 am today, and proclaims to be one of Ed’s biggest fans. “I love Ed Sheeran! I know every one of his songs by heart. I am also one of the first people to buy his concert tickets online.”
