Ed Sheeran celebrates his 18th Number 1 on The Official Big Top 40, alongside Taylor Swift.
Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift's 'The Joker And The Queen' has gone to Number 1 on The Official Big Top 40.
It becomes Ed's 18th Number 1 on the UK's biggest chart show - and his second of the year so far!
The track was originally on Ed's Equals album last year but Taylor jumped on for a new version this month.
It came after Ed performed the song live at this year's BRIT Awards, where he won Songwriter of the Year.
