Ed Sheeran meets with terminally ill fan

Ed Sheeran on the Billboard Music Awards Red Carpet 2015

Ed Sheeran apparently "smells amazing", or so says the Channan Petrides, the lucky fan who got to take selfies and spend time with the singer before his Webley show. The encounter was a bucket list cross-off for Petrides, who was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis at the age of two and was recently taken off the NHS transplant list. Meeting Sheeran was a priority for Petrides in this critical point in her life, and it looks no less than blissful as the two grin together in the picture below.

"He was so lovely and genuine, he had a great sense of humor and was really easy to get on with," Channan reportedly said after the event. "He signed my program and we took some selfies together. He smelled amazing."

Looking at this special meeting, it looks like Sheeran may be the lucky one. To help Petrides continue crossing off her bucket list goals, you can contribute to her fundraiser here.
