ED SHEERAN is absolutely besotted with his wife Cherry Seaborn – so much so that he has named another boozer after her.
I can reveal his bar in Notting Hill, West London, will be named Bertie Blossoms, with his business partner Stuart Camp getting in on the act too by paying tribute to his girlfriend Liberty Shaw. Bertie is a nickname for Liberty, while the second word relates to cherry blossoms, in a nod to Ed’s lady.

The singer is such a hands-on boss that he recently called in for a swift half and demanded the lights be turned down, as he believed they were too bright for punters.
A source said: “The pub’s manager said Ed’s a perfectionist when it comes to the interior.
“He wants the bar to be dark and atmospheric but thought the spotlights were far too blinding. He immediately ordered them to be dimmed.
“There’s also a wall where punters are encouraged to put pictures of their dogs but someone has already nicked one of the images.”
Singer Ed previously named the pub at his Suffolk home The Lancaster Lock, after her middle name
Earlier this week The Sun told how Ed has spent £4million on two new properties either side of the bar to stop neighbours moaning about noise.
His latest Cherry-inspired name comes after he called the pub at his Suffolk home The Lancaster Lock, after her middle name.
I can’t think of a better present than my own pub.

Helen made a beeline for Jason Statham, who plays mercenary Shaw, to plant a smacker on his cheek.
Also on the Curzon Mayfair red carpet, which featured supercars suspiciously free of parking tickets, was Idris Elba who took advantage of the heatwave to dress in a T-shirt and shades.
As if he wasn’t cool enough already.

They ordered two massive takeaways to her £20,000-a-night suite in London’s Corinthia Hotel.
An insider said: “Beyonce celebrated the end of promo for the film by getting in a Nando’s. She ordered loads of chicken and peri chips.”
Beyonce usually sticks to a strict diet and admitted cutting out carbs, sugar, dairy, meat, fish and booze to get into shape for her stunning Coachella performance in 2018.
No wonder she needed all that chicken.[/boxout]

I f***ed 14 girls in 12 days. I got Justin Bieber laid – he was hanging out with me. He’s a young kid, he has fame and money, I’m surprised he’s not more f***ed up.”
Speaking on The True Geordie Podcast, Dan added: “I think I may be a sex addict.”
Sounds like a nice guy . . .
Sam-thing to tell us Britney?
Britney on the red carpet… but she wasn’t alone
BRITNEY SPEARS had a sparkle in her eye – and on her finger – during her first red carpet appearance with boyfriend Sam Asghari.
She has been dating the actor and model since 2016, when he was cast in the video for her song Slumber Party, but spurred on rumours he had popped the question by showing off a dazzling diamond on her ring finger.

They walked the red carpet together at the world premiere of Quentin Tarantino movie Once Upon A Time In Hollywood in Los Angeles and stopped to kiss in front of photographers.
Earlier this year Britney hit a tough patch which saw her spend a few weeks in a mental health facility.
She certainly looks back on form now.
FREYA RIDINGS was convinced her singing career was doomed because record labels would try to change her.
But the Brit singer remained true to herself and is now sitting at No2 in the midweek charts with her self-titled debut album, after teaming up with independent label Good Soldier.
She said: “I never thought I’d sign a record deal because I knew they can ask you to change your hair, what you wear . . . Finding a label who accepted me for who I really was came as a bit of a shock. We were all brave together.”

[boxout headline=”BIZ METER”]LEWIS CAPALDI has raised £7,401 for charity after flogging the Chewbacca mask he wore at Glasgow’s TRNSMT Festival on eBay.

QUENTIN TARANTINO has claimed he is in talks with Uma Thurman to make Kill Bill 3, despite her accusing the director of putting her life at risk when they last worked together. He said: “Me and Uma have talked about it recently, frankly, to tell you the truth. I’m not sure if I’m going to do it, but I have thought about it a little further.”
GEMMA ATKINSON is upset her new daughter Mia takes after her Strictly dancer boyfriend Gorka Marquez. Speaking on the Hits Radio Breakfast Show, she said: “There’s just one little niggle. Everyone who comes to see us says, ‘Oh my God, she’s beautiful. Isn’t she like her dad?’ I go, ‘Yeah, even though I carried her for nine months’.”
