Singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran has revealed that he slept with members of Taylor Swift's famous circle of friends - and said it was surprisingly easy to woo them.

In a recent interview with Rolling Stone magazine, the British popstar recalled what it was like supporting Taylor Swift on her 2013 Red world tour.

"I was this 22-year-old awkward British kid going on tour with the biggest artist in America, who has all these famous mates," he said.

"It was very easy. I would often find myself in situations just kind of waking up and looking over and being like, ‘How the f--- did that happen?'"

Sheeran, currently in a relationship with his high-school sweetheart Cherry Seaborn, did not name his conquests, but the rumour mill has been in full swing.

Some of Taylor Swift's famous friends include actress Selena Gomez, singer Lorde and models Cara Delevinge, Lily Aldrige and Martha Hunt.

However, he hit out at headlines circulating about himself and Swift at the time.

"I found that aspect quite lazy journalism," he said. "There wasn't any truth to it whatsoever."

His latest album Divide is topping the charts and he's currently busy putting together a new boy band.

"I'm gonna put three or four boys together and do all the songs, [and] take them on the stadium tour with me."
