Ed Sheeran heartbroken over pet cat's death

Popstar Ed Sheeran is mourning the loss of his cat Graham who was killed by a car. 

The 'Shape of You' hitmaker shared a photo of the feline on his Instagram with a broken heart emoji.

Liberty Shaw, the partner of Sheeran's manager Stuart, also shared a photo of the cat along with an emotional message.

"Our lovely little bud Baby Ba Boo aka Graham the kitten passed away last night after being hit by a car," said Liberty, who looked after the cat while Sheeran was away.

"We are absolutely heartbroken. He was such a dude. Funny and clever and best mates with a massive German Shepherd. We are going to miss you so much. Thanks for all the fun."

Sheeran spoke of Graham in a 2014 interview, admitting that his busy schedule meant he had "missed Graham growing up pretty much", but he hoped to "be there in his later life."
