Celebrities are just like the rest of us, eh?

Ed Sheeran wears Penneys boxers

Ed Sheeran buys his underwear from Primark.

The 23-year-old singer still purchases his pants from the budget high street store, despite being worth millions, because according to him, they are "only meant to keep your junk in".

He said: "On a day off I'll just watch films and eat chocolate in my underwear."

When asked what brand of briefs he's partial to, the 'Don't' hitmaker replied: "Primark. No one sees them, they're only meant to keep your junk in."

Despite his low-key appearance, Ed - who counts Taylor Swift, Courteney Cox and Pharrell Williams among his closest friends - admitted he has been enjoying the high life since breaking America.

Speaking of his time in LA, he told Q magazine: "I was at parties, meeting people and thought, 'All of this could end tomorrow, I better do it all now.' I did everything I should've done - and everything I shouldn't."

After landing the cover of the latest issue of Q magazine, the crooner told his 2.42 million fans on Instagram he had fulfilled his "boyhood dream".

He wrote: "Boyhood dream of being on he cover of my favourite magazine came true. (sic)"

The new edition of Q magazine is out next week.
