Ed Sheeran takes to the Top Gear track

The Thinking Out Loud singer is this week's Star In A Reasonably Priced Car... here's some photos of his time of the track

Top Gear returns this Sunday night and it’s time to find out what crooner Ed Sheeran is like behind the wheel of a car as he becomes this series’ first Star In A Reasonably Priced Car.

Sheeran will be let loose around the Top Gear track, all in the hope of getting his name at the top of that celebrity leader board. 

The Thinking Out Loud star seemed to have some fun getting to know professional racing driver The Stig, who helps celebrities get the hang of the track. Here’s hoping The Stig didn’t do this back to Sheeran somewhere around Gambon corner…

Behind the mask he could actually be quite angry with Sheeran. Perhaps the singer touched his beloved radio. Who knows?

Sheeran does actually look quite calm. Although all that mud on the wing mirror suggests he’s had a few adventures off of the track and into the grass. Perhaps there was a ‘Sheeran Corner’ by the time he was done?

Bit of an action shot here

Before the gear comes off (that looks like a really wet track to us)

And he heads inside, probably for a nice warm cuppa
