Ed Sheeran will literally set fire to the stage during his Brit Awards performance tonight, according to a report.

Ed Sheeran is reportedly planning to set fire to the stage during his opening performance at the Brit Awards tonight.

The 30-year-old, who is up for some of the night's biggest awards, will kick start the show at 8pm with an extravagant performance involving multiple dancers, surprise guests and a huge fire display.

A source told The Sun: "Ed will make one of the most explosive openings in Brit Awards history, with the help of some special guests.

"He wanted to make sure he returned to Britain's biggest stage with a bang following the pandemic and no expense has been spared.

"Set between two electricity pylons moulded into the shape of the iconic Brit statuette, the stage will be littered with fire burning from waste paper bins and there will be a laser spectacular.

"Fire marshals have been posted everywhere backstage.

"Loads of amazingly talented dancers have been putting in the hours to rehearse for it because all of the pyrotechnics mean that one wrong move could result in disaster.

"Ed will also pay homage to London with a projection showing the city's skyline, but with a dystopian edge with barbed wire and discarded shopping trolleys used as props. It will be unforgettable."

The show will be broadcast live on ITV from 8pm.
