Ed Sheeran was in the middle of recording a podcast when he suddenly received a call from the Home Office to check he was still quarantining at home.

The Shape of You crooner was having a chat with Harry Potter twins Oliver and James Phelps, when the unexpected interruption came.

Ed, 30, recently took a trip to the US as he continues to promote his new music following a break from the spotlight.

Despite jetting around the world for his career the star still has to maintain the rules during the pandemic – including quarantining.

The UK Home Office checks in on UK travellers following their return from abroad to make sure they are staying home and isolating.

Ed darted away from his computer to confirm he is still in quarantine for a brief moment, leaving the others struggling to maintain their composure.

"It's like being called by your teacher,” Ed’s manager Stuart Camp quipped on his return.

"I just had visions of when you're hiding at your mate's house and your mum calls to ask if you're on your own,” James then joked.

Ed recently released the incredibly catchy new single Bad Habits to immense critical acclaim.

The song is his first without a collaborator for four years, and has shot straight to the top of the charts.

He was recently spotted at the England Euro football game having a fantastic time with a guest next to the likes of David Beckham and Prince William.

His ex Ellie Goulding was also in attendance watching the iconic match.
