Ed Sheeran once auditioned for Britannia High and it’s AWKS AF

We r crying

A clip of a very, very, very young and awks Ed Sheeran auditioning for a dance part in Britannia High has been doing the rounds and it's the best thing we've seen all year. Almost as good as Ed duetting with Stormzy at the Brit Awards. Or when he tweeted Val from Bake Off and made our hearts explode.

And for all you who don't remember ITV's Britannia High (who even are you), it was the UK's shitty equivalent of Glee, starred Skins star Mitch Hewer and was the highlight of our school week tbh.

Now, we've all witnessed Ed Sheeran's magnificent glow-up in recent years, but for now, cast you eyes on this early audition footage of a scrappy, music-loving Ed awkwardly playing his ukulele.

Skip to about 2:25 to see Ed in action:


Isn't that just the best thing you've ever seen in your entire lives?
