Jimmy Carr confirms he DOES sing on Ed Sheeran's hit Visiting Hours

JIMMY CARR has finally confirmed that he does sing on Ed Sheeran's hit Visiting Hours.

The track, released in August, mourned the death earlier this year of Ed’s friend and mentor, Aussie record label boss Michael Gudinski, and also features Kylie Minogue.

Ed revealed in September that Jimmy had added his voice to the track, although the funnyman had never stood the story up until now.

But speaking on The Russell Howard Hour, which airs tonight on Sky Max, Jimmy said: “I’m on backing vocals on Ed Sheeran’s single Visiting Hours.

"I have an odd musical life. It’s me and Kylie Minogue.

“Johnny McDaid, who used to be in Snow Patrol and writes with Ed, is one of my best friends. He played me the song about eight months ago. I was in a puddle, like, ‘Ah man, that’s so beautiful’.

“I find music is a real way to connect with grief. I like what music does. It reminds you of the people you love.

“And he went, ‘Oh, you have to do backing vocals for it’. I said, ‘I don’t think that’s a good idea’ but he said he could make it work.

“So I did the backing vocals. I can hear myself on it.”

Laughing, he added: “They needed it – that song is nothing without me!”
