The star recently revealed he plans to take his one-year-old baby daughter Lyra – who he shares with wife Cherry – on tour with him, giving her a jet set lifestyle before she even starts school.
‘You know I’ve got a long tour coming up so I think by the time that she’ll probably start primary school we’ll have been around the world like three or four times so I think it’s probably time to settle and have a normal childhood I think,’ he said on KISS Breakfast.

As of September 3, it has spent ten consecutive weeks at number one in both the UK and Ireland, beating Ed’s own record and becoming his biggest number one to date.
