Ed Sheeran has told one of his entourage to carry a bottle of Heinz Tomato Ketchup "wherever he goes".
The 'Perfect' hitmaker is a huge fan of the red stuff and even has a tattoo tribute of the condiment, but is so keen to eat the sauce he has made sure one of his crew will have a bottle at hand to pass him if he ever dines somewhere which doesn't serve the red substance.
A music source told The Sun newspaper: "Ed's made no secret of his Heinz Ketchup obsession and has run out of patience with going to places that don't serve it while he's touring.
"He's made it a duty of key members of his entourage to carry a bottle wherever he goes so he can have it with everything from his morning sausage butty to upmarket dinners."
Just last month, the 26-year-old singer admitted he would make Ketchup "compulsory in all places" alongside fries if he was ever elected as Britain's Prime Minister, and he would ban early mornings.
Sharing a headline from a news article on Instagram, which claimed that young people in Britain had voted for him to take the place of current leader Theresa May, he captioned the image: "I can't even think of a caption for this let alone run the country but I would make 5am illegal and ketchup compulsory in all places with chips (sic)"
But the flame-haired singer recently admitted he is "not perfect", insisting there are plenty of "shades" to him.
He said: "I'm not tarring anyone with any brush. I'm very open that I've been a f***ing **** at times. There's my song called 'Happier', and the whole thing is, 'You've got a new boyfriend and look happy.'
"I was saying, 'You deserved someone better.' There are so many shades of me. I'm not perfect."
