It's an unlikely pairing, but singer Ed Sheeran and 'girl of the moment' Ruby Rose are set to present the MTV Europe Music Awards together later this month.

The show will be held in Milan, Italy on Sunday October 25th.


Ed, who is nominated himself in four categories, has said he "an't wait" for his presenting duties.

The British singer will be joined by Australian actress, model, dj and fashion designer, Ruby Rose, who recently found fame on Netflix show 'Orange Is The New Black'.
