Ed Sheeran is happy with his new waxwork’s bulge

Ed Sheeran is very happy that his new wax model has "got a bulge" in the trouser area.

The 24-year-old musician unveiled his doppelgänger at Madame Tussauds Time Square in New York City yesterday and was most impressed that the creators chose to make the statue well endowed.

Met my waxwork at Madame Tussaud, he didn't say much but he's got a bulge so it's all good

Taking to Twitter, he said:"Met my waxwork at Madame Tussaud, he didn't say much but he's got a bulge so it's all good."

To create his double, Ed had to wear skin tight shorts and a vest and be measured and prodded for three hours to ensure the finished result was an exact double of the singer.

Before it was revealed to the world, the 'Thinking Out Loud' hitmaker anticipated that his parents would find the wax work, which can be seen wearing a trademark chequered shirt and holding a guitar, strange.

Speaking at the event, he said: "I'm excited for my parents to see it. I think it'll be quite weird for me but I think for my parents to see what they created."
