Ed Sheeran wants to return for the Red Notice sequel

Ed Sheeran hopes he'll make another appearance in the 'Red Notice' sequel.

The 'Bad Habits' hitmaker made a cameo in the hit Netflix heist movie - which broke streaming records by becoming the most-watched film on the platform on release day - and he's hoping director Rawson Marshall Thurber will want him back for the second flick.

Speaking at Hits Live in Liverpool, he spilled: "Mine was the last scene that they shot and because of COVID, it was a two-year shoot.

"So, by the end of it, all the crew were just like thank God this is over.

"Because it was just a long process, I'm hoping that it's going to turn into like a Mike Tyson in the 'Hangover' thing.

"Because they're going to do a sequel, so I'm hoping that at some point I get brought back to be even worse."

It wouldn't be a surprise if the flame-haired pop star is asked back, as Rawson previously revealed Ed was his first choice.

He said: "It’s actually my favourite part of the movie. Ed, from the very first pitch, was who I wanted.

"When the time came, I had a mutual friend who put us in touch and I emailed Ed – who is the loveliest person on the planet, by the way – and I sent him a picture of my notebook when I was writing the pitch. It had his name in it, so he knew I wasn’t fooling."

The motion picture stars the likes of Ryan Reynolds, Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and Gal Gadot.

The 30-year-old star starts singing his hit song 'Perfect' at a wedding where Dwayne and Gal's con artist characters, John Hartley and The Bishop, respectively, cause a disturbance, before everyone is moved on.

Ed was one of the performers at Hits Radio's Hits Live at the M&S Bank Arena in Liverpool yesterday (19.11.21).

Next year Hits Live will have three shows in Liverpool on the 20th May 2022, Manchester on the 11th November 2022, and Birmingham on the 12th November 2022. Find out more at www.hitsradio.co.uk.
