Singer's appearance in the long-running Aussie soap is set to be aired in the UK later this year
Footage of Ed Sheeran‘s forthcoming appearance in the long-running Australian soap opera Home And Away has been posted online.
The singer was snapped on location at Palm Beach in Sydney alongside actress Emily Symons, who plays Marilyn Chambers on the show, earlier this year. But now producers of the show have uploaded a snippet of his debut on the soap. Watch the clip above.
Sheeran plays Teddy, who Chambers was a nanny to when she lived in the UK.
He visits Summer Bay and surprises everyone when he turns out to be chart-topping singer Sheeran, treating them to a special performance in the diner.
Sheeran previously said of his cameo in Home And Away: “It’s an Australian institution. It’s always on in my local chip shop. I got asked to do it and it sounded like it could be fun. I did Shortland Street in New Zealand as well and I’m sure if Emmerdale or EastEnders ever ask me in England I would do that as well.”
The singer, is the only international celebrity to appear on Home And Away and the biggest musician since Australian pop star John Farnham cameoed on the soap in the late 1980s.
Rival soap Neighbours has had a number of pop stars appear on the show over the years, including Lily Allen, the Pet Shop Boys, Spice Girl Emma Bunton and Paula Abdul.
Sheeran’s cameo will air in the UK on Channel 5 in the winter.
