British pop star Ed Sheeran will get rid of the New Year (16) with surgery after bursting his ear drum after a recent boating excursion.

The Photograph singer is about to take a hiatus once he wraps up his final world tour dates in New Zealand last week (12Dec15), but a part of his career break are going to be spent recuperating from an ear operation.

“I will need to have an operation in January on my small ear because I stupidly jumped off a yacht through the roof up and smashed it,” Ed explains to Australia’s Nova radio.

“I landed wrong plus it burst my eardrum so I will need to go and get a graft, which implies I’m not permitted to fly for some time, making it kind of good; this would mean I have to be home more.”

Ed reveals the painful accident came about earlier this year (15), because was on holiday in Spain.

“I didn’t realise what actually transpired until I went in water again also it’s one of the most painful thing which has a hole as part of your eardrum all night . water use,” he adds.

The singer, 24, admits he or she is always battling some type of injury, especially during your the road.

“I always cut my hands open on something,” he confesses. “Last time I did that had been last year.

“I just experimented with open a beer bottle, you know the way you can open beer bottles with lighters? So I experimented with do that with another beer bottle also it just sort of shattered inside my hand… It’s usually beer bottles that smash within my hands and cut them open. I have a load of scars on my own hands.”
