Singer/songwriter, Ed Sheeran has tested positive for the ravaging Covid-19 virus and is self-isolating ahead his scheduled appearance Saturday Night Live.

The singer, whose fifth album titled = or Equals, is to be released within days, had been due to take part in a week live promo, including a turn as the musical guest next Saturday’s (30 October) SNL.

In a statement shared Instagram, Sheeran said that he hoped to take part in all his planned interviews and performances from home.

“Hey guys. Quick note to tell you that I’ve sadly tested positive for Covid, so I’m now self-isolating and following guidelines,” wrote the “Shape You” singer.

“It means that I’m now unable to plough ahead with any in person commitments for now, so I’ll be doing as many my planned interviews/performances I can from my house. Apologies to anyone I’ve let down. Be safe everyone.”


However, despite Sheeran’s promise to still perform from home, reports suggest that Saturday Night Live are looking for an artist to replace him.
