ED Sheeran was reduced to tears every day as he went to school.
The superstar singer has revealed bullies taunted him for having ginger hair, glasses and a stutter.
Ed Sheeran says primary school was hell for him
He said: “I hated primary school with a passion; I cried every day.
“I’m ginger so I was instantly ripped into from the day I started school – ginger, had a stutter, and wore huge glasses. . . just a bit odd.
“But then as I got older I kind of loved it, I’ve always kind of looked a bit quirky. I never had much luck with girls and stuff like that, it was always I kind of looked a bit weird.”
Ed beat the bullies by making music. He has gone on to land five No1 singles, 21 Top Tens, three No1 albums, four Grammys, five Brits and six Billboard gongs.

His happiness hit an all-time high last December when he married childhood sweetheart Cherry Seaborn.
In an interview with DJ Nihal and rapper Dave for anti-racism campaign group Love Music Hate Racism, Ed continued: “I got to high school, started playing guitar and joined a band. Music is one of those things that can give you confidence.
“You’re suddenly like ‘wow, I can actually do something well’. Before I picked up a guitar I did nothing.
“I went to a primary school that was quite sporty and I couldn’t play sport.That was how you were cool — if you were good at football you were cool and I wasn’t good at football.

But then when I joined high school it was such a melting pot of all different things and I started playing the guitar and suddenly started fitting in.”
I bet those bullies are ashamed of themselves now.
Katy tot teaser

Zayn’s sorry tweet to Louis for his 1D no-show
LOUIS Tomlinson has revealed his friendship with Zayn Malik was never the same after Zayn failed to turn up for an emotional One Direction reunion just days after the death of Louis’ mum.
But it seems Zayn has come to regret his X Factor no-show, attempting to say sorry for the social error in a now-deleted tweet.
Louis Tomlinson’s sister passed away from a suspected heart attack this month
He said: “I’d like to apologise for basically being a s*** person,”.
It looked like Zayn had more to get off his chest as the tweet finished with a comma, suggesting he was at the beginning of a lengthy confession.
Instead the singer appears to have chickened out – deleting the tweet just moments after posting it.
Louis was still grieving the loss of his mother Johannah in December of 2016, when he tragically lost his 18-year-old sister Félicité when she suffered a suspected heart attack earlier this month.
Zayn apologised in a now deleted tweet for being a bad friend to Louis
But his old bandmate Zayn didn’t make it to the 1D get-together.
Louis said: “I had a few of calls with him after I lost my mum and all the boys had agreed to come to that performance and he didn’t show. That really bugged me.”
Zayn will have to do more than tweet to win back Louis’ friendship.

YOU’VE got to hand it to Rochelle Humes – she knows how to throw a party.
The pop star-turned-telly presenter celebrated her 30th birthday with a wild weekend at Soho Farmhouse in Oxfordshire.

Rochelle was joined by celeb pals Alesha Dixon, Emma Willis and Keith Lemon.
And no bash would be complete without an intimate performance from none other than Gary Barlow, who serenaded Rochelle on stage in front of all her guests, above.
The do also featured a partial Girls Aloud reunion in the form of party guests Cheryl Tweedy, Kimberley Walsh and Nicola Roberts, but they didn’t take to the mic.

Rochelle treated her nearest and dearest to a set of luxury pyjamas with the legend “RH30” in memory of the special occasion, and she even organised a football match before the celebrations began.
Let’s hope all that clean countryside air cleared their sore heads the following morning.

Rickie, who co-hosts the weekday late show from 9pm to 11pm after switching from Kiss FM, said: “She came into the studio and was like, ‘Why’s that person filming? I thought this was a radio interview.
