Ed announced at the end of last year that he was taking an extended break from his career to focus on travelling and his personal life.

The couple have been together for five years, with Ed confirming last summer that he and Cherry tied the knot in a private ceremony in January 2019.

Singer Ed first revealed Cherry was his wife in an interview with Charlamagne The God to promote his album No.6 Collaborations Project.

After Charlamagne The God asked about lyrics on the album which refer to the singer’s ‘wife’, Ed admitted that he wrote the words before the couple tied the knot, but he ‘knew that we’d be married’ by the point that the song came out.

The Grammy winner and Cherry wed in a ceremony that saw just 40 close friends and family in attendance, according to a report in The Sun.
