If you heard Ed Sheeran’s new single ‘Bad Habits’ and thought it sounded like an alright Eurovision entry, maybe you’re onto something. Sheeran has said that he would like to represent the UK at the big old Eurovision Song Contest “one day”. He will have to sever his relationship with long-term manager Stuart Camp though.

“Eurovision is my favourite thing to watch every year”, Sheeran told Dutch broadcaster Humberto Tan. “I love it … I texted my manager being like, ‘I’m gonna do this one day’ and he was just like, ‘Not on my watch'”.

“I think if I’m gonna do it, England has to be loved by Europe again, and I don’t know if that’s gonna happen”, he added.

“We do love England”, Tan told him. “But we love Ed Sheeran more”.

Sheeran also said that he really liked Germany’s entry at Eurovision 2021, that being ‘I Don’t Feel Hate’, which came just above the UK in this year’s scoring with a total of three points. So maybe someone else should pick which Sheeran song we enter.
