Hayley Holt has some extremely strong feelings about chart-topping pop star Ed Sheeran.
They're not positive!
The Breakfast presenter struck out at Sheeran on this morning's show ahead of his record-breaking tour here which kicks off next week.
Holt's attack on Sheeran was sparked by news that Dunedin was making ratepayers cough up $8000 for a mural of the UK singer.
"This will stop me from going to Dunedin ... I do not want to see a giant mural of Ed Sheeran's mug. I'm sorry, he does my head in," Holt told viewers this morning.
She continued: "Ed Sheeran seems like a lovely person, but he is so boring, and he tries to suck up to us by wearing All Black shirts.
"What is it about our obsession with him? Remember when he was on Game of Thrones. Remember that episode? He ruined the Game of Thrones."
Jack Tame didn't share his co-host's views, quickly trying to calm Holt down.
"You don't know what you've done. You've upset the Ed Sheeran people," said Tame. "Saying that is like saying you hate Adele. Or cats.
"I don't love Ed Sheeran, I just would never say I hate him on television because I know how that would end."
But Holt was backed up by newsreader Jenny Suo. "I agree. I'm sorry Jack ... I can't say I'm a fan of Ed Sheeran.
Sheeran performs six shows in New Zealand kicking off next weekend in Auckland, before heading to Dunedin.
He’s set to break the audience attendance record set by Adele’s shows last year.
