Believe it or not, Ed Sheeran still hasn't lived in his three new homes

'Sing' hitmaker Ed Sheeran has admitted he still hasn't actually lived in the three homes he bought following the success of his debut album '+' in 2011, but he insisted he doesn't "want to rent them out".

The 'Sing' hitmaker admitted he splashed out on three separate properties after the success of his 2011 debut album '+', but they remain empty - and he doesn't "really want to rent them out".

He told the Daily Star Sunday newspaper: "I've bought three houses. I thought the first thing I should do was put the money into bricks and mortar.

"I haven't had a chance to live in any of them yet though. I've been too busy touring and travelling.

"One is being renovated and the other two are just empty. I don't really want to rent them out."

A lot has changed for the singer-songwriter since his first album, as he's gone from playing 12 sets in two days at Glastonbury in 2011, to performing on the main Pyramid Stage today (29.06.14).

He said: "My worst festival experience was Glastonbury 2011 when I played 12 gigs in two days. We got lost in the car going there.

"I was playing in really small tents all over the festival. It was what I had to do to promote the album but it was hard."
