And the plot thickens …
Earlier this month Ed Sheeran channelled Conor McGregor by getting a huge lion tattooed on his chest.
But then yesterday the ginger-haired singer posted another picture showing his tat-free chest, saying he: “Was only joking about the lion.”
So, just as everyone laughed the prank off and thought he’d never have gotten the ink in the first place , Sheeran posted another picture a few hours later revealing the tattoo was still in place, it just covered up for a TV show.
Ed, what are you doing to us?
Can you even play the guitar? Everything suddenly seems all a lie and let's just say fans are not happy.

@edsheeran ED. You can't just keep lying about your chest. It's something I take very seriously.— Alex Goldschmidt (@alexandergold) August 26, 2015
@edsheeran YOU LYING MENACE I TRUSTED YOU— Dan❣️ (@loosech4nge) August 26, 2015
Sheeran is set to make his TV debut on Home and Away later this month, so of course he couldn’t upstage those impressive Brax brother tats.
