A hospital has launched a review of how it deals with celebrities after Ed Sheeran was asked to pose for selfies with staff while being treated for a broken arm.

The singer was also asked to sign autographs during his stay at Ipswich Hospital in October, the BBC reported.

He broke his right wrist and left elbow causing him to pull out of live shows in his Asian tour.

It covered 'confidentiality, privacy of the patient and their loved ones and practical considerations'.

The songwriter, from Suffolk, took to Instagram on October 16 to tell fans about the accident.

He later told the Jonathan Ross Show he was advised by doctors against attempting to play through the pain.

'I tried to say 'I'll carry on doing shows', but they said if I put any more stress on it, I might not be able to play (guitar) again so it's good to be sensible,' he said.

'I was in Suffolk. The thing is, when it happened, I got up and was like, 'That hurt' and then cycled to the pub.

'Went home, went to sleep and then woke up at five o'clock in the morning in a lot of pain. And then went to hospital.
