The singer broke his right arm after coming off his bike near his home in Suffolk last month, with the injury forcing him to shelve several scheduled tour dates across Asia.
Now, it’s been revealed that Liam was only too keen to rib Sheeran about the injury when the pair met at the Q Awards last month.
“Fucking hell kiddo!”, Gallagher reportedly said.
“You want to calm down on the two handed wanking a bit. Can’t go breaking both arms wanking. Go back to one hand, it’s all you need.”
Their first meeting came in 2012 – with Ed revealing how Liam had been “super-friendly” when they met at the closing ceremony of the Olympics.
“I met him at the Olympic closing ceremony in 2012”, Ed told Q.
“We were outside, just me and him, I walked outside for a cigarette and he was there. He was super friendly to me. He’s a very funny guy. I really like him, really cool.”
Meanwhile, Liam is currently touring America – but he’ll return to the UK next month for a massive tour that will see him taking in shows at London’s Alexandra Palace and Manchester Arena.
