“I don’t think I’ll ever get to February again and be like “this is a great month,” that was a horrible, horrible, horrible month.”

He continued, “Life hasn’t moved on for me yet and I don’t think it will, I think it’s going to be a ….” he said before welling up.

Sheeran said February 2022 was one of the toughest years of his life.

He spoke out about the ordeal in his docu-series ‘The Sum Of It All’ on Disney+.

The Shape of You singer said he felt like he was drowning after Cherry’s diagnosis. He said there is nothing worse than seeing the person you love in danger.
