Zak uses his Ed in chat


Our pet hate is overly media-trained celebs who think they can promote their products with boring one-word answers.

So it’s refreshing to hear that who never holds back in chats, feels our pain.

The superstar has advised soul-pop singer – who played at May’s Coronation – not to hold back when he’s in the hot seat. Zak, 28, whose stunning new album Love Over Fear is out August 25, told us: “I met Ed Sheeran backstage at a BBC Radio 1 show and I was about to go and do my first interview. “He’d just finished one and was sitting in the lounge area and I asked
