Ed Sheeran laughs off car crash report

British pop star Ed Sheeran has dismissed reports suggesting he crashed a car during an appearance in U.K. motoring show Top Gear.

The A Team singer filmed a track race as part of the series' Star in a Reasonably Priced Car segment on Wednesday (21Jan15), and subsequent reports suggested Sheeran, who does not have a driving license, was involved in a scary accident during the shoot.

However, he has now spoken out to dismiss the reports, revealing he did run the car off the track, but did not crash.

In a post on Twitter.com, he writes, "I didn't crash on Top Gear, I went off road. Was my first time driving ever. Tune in Sunday to see what actually happened."

The show airs in the U.K. on Sunday (25Jan15).
