“I’m really excited to have a pig sculpture made in my honour,” the 25-year-old singer said according to the BBC.

The artwork, which is titled Ed Sheer-Ham, is one of 40 sculptures that have been placed around Ipswich as part of the Pigs Gone Wild trail.

The flannel-wearing, red-haired pig is the pork of the town with fans trotting to the statue in droves to snap a swine selfie.
