    Ed Sheeran Helped Little Mix's Jesy Nelson Get Engaged

    And was rewarded with a KFC.

    Ed Sheeran has done a lot of cute things for his fans lately, from surprising them in shopping centres to perform duets, to giving advice to kids who struggle with stuttering.

    But now he's helped out two of his celebrity fans, in the form of Rixton's Jake Roche, and Little Mix's Jesy Nelson.

    Jake proposed to Jesy yesterday, in the Manchester Arena where they met exactly a year ago. But Jake enlisted the help of Ed Sheeran to make the proposal perfect.

    Little Mix were set to perform at the Manchester Arena that night, and Jake managed to get Ed to travel for five hours on his day off in order to perform his track "Tenerife Sea" during Little Mix's sound check. It was at this point that Jake got down on one knee, with this perfect photo of the moment captured.

    Jesy posted the same image onto Instagram after accepting the proposal, telling fans she felt like the "luckiest girl in the world".

    After the proposal, Jake took to Twitter to thank Ed for his help in making the proposal so special.

    Travelled 5 hours to sing our favourite song on his day off. I will never ever be able to repay you. Love you pal. @edsheeran

    And Ed's response, in which he thanked Jake for the KFC he'd treated him to, was A+.

    @Jake_Rixton my absolute pleasure. Thanks for the KFC

    Classic Ed. 👏
