SLIDESHOW: Ed Sheeran and Al Murray top bill at Chris Ramsey’s charity night

Waiting for Video...

SINGING superstar Ed Sheeran was the surprise mystery guest at a star-studded charity event in South Shields.

The show, at the Customs House, also saw Pub Landlord Al Murray take to the stage.

The fundraising event, organised by South Shields comic Chris Ramsey, raised money for children’s cancer charity, CLIC Sargent.

Chris, 27, put together the gig in memory of his young half cousin Jack Leggett.

The nine-year-old, of Primrose Avenue, South Shields, died from a brain tumour just three days before Christmas. He had been diagnosed just two months earlier.

Jack’s father and Chris’s cousin, Alfie Leggett, and his partner Susan Clarkson, were helped through their ordeal by CLIC Sargent.

The gig also included stand up from Hebburn creator Jason Cook, Jarrow’s Carl Hutchinson and music from Lindisfarne’s Billy Mitchell.

Here’s a selection of pictures from the show.
