Local shares her experience meeting Ed in Coffs - twice

UPDATE: SOCIAL media was in meltdown this week following news English singer/songwriter Ed Sheeran had visited Coffs Harbour, and one lucky local has shared her experience meeting the superstar for the second time.

Currently in Australia as part of his '÷' world tour, Sheeran was spotted after he touched down at Coffs Harbour Regional Airport on Sunday.

Biggles Flight Lounge employee Simone Cook was the subject of envy after she was lucky enough to not only get a photo with the superstar when he visited in 2015, but again during his recent stopover.

"He's a really friendly guy, very down to earth," she said.

"He was sitting in a car and we didn't expect to get a photo with him, we were happy to just wave at him. But then he stopped the vehicle and got out, took a photo with us and signed our CDs.

"He asked to us to respect his privacy while he was in town, and we acknowledged that and waited until he had left to post the photo."

It's understood the performer, who it is speculated was visiting Russell Crowe, flew out on Tuesday afternoon for his Wednesday night show in Adelaide.
