Sunrise star Edwina Bartholomew interviews Ed Sheeran in her pjs

Sunrise star Edwina Bartholomew has interviewed international superstar Ed Sheeran at 1:30am in the morning from home in her pjs.

The singer appeared on the breakfast program to promote his new single Bad Habits, with Edwina joking about having to do the chat in "the middle of the night" as she introduced the segment on Thursday.

"Ed I think you're the only star we'd get up for at 1:30 in the morning," Edwina told the Shape of You singer via a Zoom interview on her laptop.

"We've got the crew here in our pyjamas," she added, as the cameras panned out to indeed reveal her producer and camera man in their comfies filming the exchange.


As a dad himself, Ed Sheeran responded by apologising to the Aussie journo - who is currently expecting baby number two - for the early start.

"Honestly, I know you've got a little baby, and I really appreciate you staying up for this," he said.

"In all honesty, if you want to do it the other way around next time, I'm probably up at 1:30am with my baby anyway - so we can do that," he added.

Bad Habits is the lead single from Ed's fifth studio album, 'Equals'.

It comes after Edwina had a less than pleasant exchange with Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison on Wednesday, after she and Matt Shirvington put the PM on the spot during a discussion about the country's escalating Covid cases.

The Sunrise hosts quizzed Prime Minister Scott Morrison about the massive queues seen at testing clinics in places such as NSW as well as whether rapid antigen tests should be provided to all Aussies for free.

"With the rapid antigen test, people can't access them anywhere and they're clogging up those lines. We're seeing a clinic in Albert Park [in Melbourne] already closed this morning before it even opened," Edwina said.

"So do we have a stockpile of [rapid antigen tests]? I know a lot of money has been given out already, could we give some more?"

The PM simply said that the matter was under consideration.
