Ed Sheeran to have a ‘thing’ with Lisa Simpson

Move over Bleeding Gums Murphy, Lisa Simpson has a new beau and he’s in the form of Ed Sheeran.

Fresh from his Game of Thrones of cameo, the singer will appear once again on our television screens in October.

A post shared by Ed Sheeran (@teddysphotos) on

This time as a character on The Simpsons.

The singer/songwriter posted an image on Instagram of himself ‘simpsonized’.

His yellow character is seen with his signature ginger hair, t-shirt and hat - someone we definitely see Lisa Simpson falling for.

Similar to Game of Thrones, Ed will not be playing himself - his character’s name is Brendan who is reportedly a new love interest for Lisa Simpson and arch enemy of Milhouse.

He will be introduced specially for a musical-themed special.

"This year continues to be equally surreal and amazing. Watch out for this one, me and Lisa have a whole thing going on,” he wrote alongside the picture.

Unfortunately his recent role in the new series of Game Of Thrones divided opinion among the show's fans.

Sheeran is such a fan of the long-running show he has a tattoo of Blinky, Springfield's famous three-eyed fish.
