Ed Sheeran has revealed that he has agreed to pose naked after gaining confidence due to losing three stone in weight.
The young singer/ songwriter has had a spectacular year in 2011 and hit the charts with his singles 'The A Team' and 'You Need Me, I Don't Need You'. However, he told BBC Newsbeat that he is not the most outgoing person in the world.
"I'm not a very confident guy when it comes to taking clothes off," he admitted.
Revealing plans for a naked photo shoot, Ed said: "I've been persuaded for Elton John's charity to do a naked photo shoot. So ladies, lock up your daughters."
Ed says that quitting alcohol was key to his weight loss. "I was 14 stone (88kg) in January and I'm now 11 (69kg)," he revealed.
"I stopped drinking and got a personal trainer. I was a bit flabby to be fair. I moved out at 16 from above a pub with a kebab shop where I ate and drank and just got a bit chubby."
Ed recently recruited Harry Potter actor Rupert Grint for his latest music video.
