Multi-millionaire singer Ed Sheeran has said that he celebrates his success by buying himself children's toys - and that he even brought his Lego on a date.

The chart-topper, 25, is worth an estimated £45 million thanks to his best-selling tracks and sell-out tours.

But he tells tonight's Graham Norton Show that he has treated himself to an assortment of cuddly toys.

"When my album went to number one I bought the Death Star Lego kit - it was time!" he said.

"And, when my goddaughter wanted a Ninja Turtle I got her one and bought myself the Ninja Turtle truck!

"I have a load of kids' stuff - a room full of teddy bears and two giant pandas in my bedroom."

And Sheeran, who recently returned to the limelight following a year off, said that he took his Lego set when he went on a date because he could not wait to build it.

"I once went on a date, brought a Lego set with me and while we were chatting I made the set and then left," the Castle On The Hill singer told Norton.

Sheeran has a scar on his face following reports Princess Beatrice accidentally cut him in a party prank when she pretended to "knight" singer James Blunt with a ceremonial sword.

He told the BBC1 show: "I can't talk about it. I don't know what will happen if I do!

"For two weeks after, I had a huge gash on my face and would tell people I fell and then suddenly, the story came out, the alleged story came out."

He added: "I remember telling my dad about it and he didn't believe me and said, 'No, what really happened?'"

:: The Graham Norton Show airs on BBC1 tonight at 10.35pm.
