Ed Sheeran fans have been confused this morning as the ambiguous hashtag #sheeranalbumparty trends on Twitter.

The hashtag was started by BBC Radio 1’s Greg James in tribute to Susan Boyle’s legendary #susanalbumparty of 2012, which was started by Boyle’s record label without anyone spotting the sexual innuendo.

In honour of #Susanalbumparty, we’re having an impromptu #Sheeranalbumparty. Gonna listen to some of Ed’s album #LOLathon

Some Sheeran fans are clearly amused by the joke, but others seem more confused by it. Check out a selection of their Twitter reactions below.

Sadly, Sheeran himself has yet to share his thoughts on the #sheeranalbumparty.

Meanwhile, Sheeran has announced that he will be playing a huge show in London right before Glastonbury 2017. Fans are now speculating that he could be preparing to make a secret appearance at the festival.

It has also been confirmed that Ed Sheeran will make a guest appearance during season seven of Game Of Thrones.

The singer-songwriter has broken Spotify streaming records with the release of his huge new album ‘÷’.

His long-awaited third album – his first since June 2014’s ‘x’ – dropped on March 3. Fans responded to the new full-length record positively, while bookmakers quickly moved to post ‘÷’ as one of the favourites to become the UK’s biggest-selling album of 2017.
