Ed Sheeran has said he finds it difficult to balance his family, his career and his love life, saying he needs a girl who is ok with not coming first all the time.

The Sing hitmaker told Spotify, "You put your family and your friends first, always, and then your career second. But when you date someone, they kind of fall in between the family and friends and career.

"And you don't really know whether they're more important than the career or whether they're more important than family. You just need to find someone that's ok with it. My family understands I had to go away for 12 months last year, but until you find a partner who's happy with that, you shouldn't even bother. Well, you shouldn't bother committing."

Sheeran added, "I think by the time you have kids, that's when your family comes first, and that's where the woman comes, because she's your family now. I think kids change everything, but up until then it's different."
