We hope Ed Sheeran’s campfire building skills are up to scratch, as he’s just been announced as the next Desert Island Discs castaway.
The singer will guest on the long-running BBC Radio 4 programme when it returns for its new series next month.
Sheeran has already recorded his appearance, which will air on Sunday 7 May, with presenter Kirsty Young.
He will choose the eight songs he would most want to have with him if he was stranded on a desert island.
Sheeran has been going from strength to strength this year, with his latest album Divide topping the charts and its lead single Shape of You enjoying a 13-week reign at number one.
Desert Island Discs has been running for 75 years – an anniversary it celebrated in January with an appearance from David Beckham.
