Gordon in the morning: A second look at Ed Sheeran

This morning, Ed Sheeran reveals his looks nearly cost him his job:

The Suffolk lad, who’s gone on to sell millions after initially being knocked back, said: “Every single label I had gone to at the time had told me this song wasn’t a hit. They said this song wouldn’t work.

“And the fact that I was slightly chubby and ginger was not a good ‘marketing tool’ for them.”
That just seems unfairly rude - sure, going 'your record isn't very good' is fair enough, but to then go 'and you look all wrong too' isn't particularly kind.

Very much "Mr Jones, your pies are full of gristle and bone. They are quite inedible. We couldn't possibly put them in our shop.

Also, the font you're using on the box is unpleasant."
