NEWS OF THE WEEK: Ed Sheeran denies claims he declined to perform at King Charles III's coronation

During a chat on SiriusXM, the Thinking Out Loud singer explained that he wanted to "set the record straight" regarding rumours that he had turned down the chance to sing at Windsor Castle on Sunday. "No one ever asked me (to perform)," he told the show's hosts, before adding: "I assume if they went online and went 'what's Ed doing on May 6', they would go 'oh, he's playing in Dallas' so I think that's what's happened."
