Singer Ed Sheeran has bought a home in Italy because he loved its vineyard.

The Shape of You singer revealed that he has splashed out on a property in Umbria, which was struck by a 6.6 magnitude earthquake when he was visiting last year, reported Contactmusic.

"I didn't want to buy in Tuscany because there are too many English people there. There is a vineyard and the moment I saw it I knew I had to buy that place.

"It's in Umbria. When the earthquake happened, I was there and I felt it, but I'm not that close to where it happened," Sheeran says.
