“I realise some people think it’s quite a strange name” he explained, “but my wife’s called Cherry, and she is the only Cherry that I’ve ever met and I think that she’s the only Cherry that she’s ever met and I quite like that.”

The singer also explained the sentiment behind his eldest daughter’s middle name ‘Antarctica,’ explaining that he had visited the continent with Cherry before she was pregnant. 

“I’ve basically toured every single continent but i’ve never been to Antarctica so that was always on our list,” Ed explained.
