Is Ed Sheeran lion to us AGAIN?

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.

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.
