Ed Sheeran has scored his seventh Number 1 on this week's Official Irish Singles Chart with Bad Habits and has sent a very special video message to Irish fans.

The singer-songwriter claimed the most downloads of the week to debut on top, outperforming Olivia Rodrigo's Good 4 U, which is in the second spot, by 1,000 combined chart sales.

Sheeran said: "Ireland, Bad Habits has gone Number 1 in your wonderful, beautiful country, thank you so much for making that happen.

"I've been away for a very, very long time and I didn’t expect to come back and feel this amount of love straight away. Thank you for making it happen and I hope to see you all soon. Nice one."
