The Capital FM breakfast DJ has enjoyed many games of the traditional bar game with his pop star pal but he rarely beats him because Ed is a skilled ball potter.

Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz about his time in Dubai with the singer, Roman said: "It's quite chill, you know, you just go to the pub and he will school you at pool. Like I hate it ... I hate it. He will hustle you as well - that's my one word of advice, if you ever find yourself in a pool match with Ed Sheeran, he will hustle you.

""We spent a whole week out in Dubai with Ed and it was just a lot of fun."

The broadcaster - who is the son of Spandau Ballet musician Martin Kemp and former Wham! backing singer Shirlie Holliman - was tattooed by the 'Shape of You' chart-topper last year whilst live on air with the personalised inking reading "Ed Woz Ere 2k7 x", a mistake as the date is 10 years too old.

Roman, 25, insists he has no intention of getting the tattoo removed as he and Ed, 27, are great friends.

He said: "I first met Cherry [Seaborn], his fiancée, a year-and-a-half ago, and he said, 'This is the idiot that I tattooed.'

"But I see Ed quite a lot, you know, we have really fun nights and stuff like that and Cherrie is wonderful as well, his whole team to be honest.

He said:

Roman was speaking to BANG Showbiz as part of his partnership with Cadburys to create booths in Canary Wharf scheduled for that afternoon moment when you need a pick-me-up and can reach for a new Cadbury Boost + Protein bar made with the same irresistible chewy caramel taste of Cadbury Boost but with 12g of protein and 32 per cent less sugar than standard Boost.
