Ed out of the Game
ED Sheeran will not return for the Game Of Thrones finalé after admitting his appearance in the series was a disaster.
And the Shape Of You star wishes his character had been killed off.
Ed was ridiculed for the four-minute scene where he played a singing soldier who chatted with Arya Stark.
But the 27-year-old chart topper said of last year’s cameo: “I know what Game Of Thrones fans hoped happened to my character.
“I’m sure they think my character got brutally, brutally murdered, but I think my character is still out there.
“I think he’s chillin’. It was fun being in Game Of Thrones, but I definitely think they should’ve killed me off in the episode.
“I reckon that probably would have been the redemption for people that didn’t like it.”
The eighth and last series will be shown next year.
A PRIMARY school teacher ditched her job for a globetrotting life swinging from ceilings in front of crowds of thousands.
Haylee Martin, 30, took a gamble of a lifetime when she called time on teaching and a steady income to follow her dreams.
She now wows crowds with her amazing strength and flexibility under her stage name Haylee-Ann. Haylee, right, from Wimborne in Dorset, said: “My friends thought I was crazy.
“It definitely was a gamble.
I left teaching without the guarantee of a job and with a lot to learn.
“All I knew was that I was willing to work extremely hard to realise my dream.” Haylee took part in gymnastics competitions as a child but never had the confidence to take it further. She missed out on challenging for Olympic medals but did get to demonstrate her acrobatic skills at London 2012. Haylee, who was 24 when she stopped teaching, said: “Performing in front of 20,000 people in the O2 Arena at the Olympics is a particular highlight of my career so far, and an amazing experience I will never forget.
“It was my dream to perform on an international stage and I’ve achieved that numerous times over.
“I’m really happy and proud that I was able to make my dreams a reality.”
Twisting from a swinging hoop and hanging by her ankles in mid-air are just a couple of jaw-dropping skills Haylee has taken overseas in a variety of productions. She added: “From touring the US and performing in huge arenas, to cruising around exotic locations and meeting some amazing people from all over the world, I really feel so lucky.”
Haylee is now hoping to kick-start a side career, too.
She said: “I’m aspiring to compete as a bikini fitness athlete soon, so I’m prepping my body for a possible physique show in the next few months.”
