Get ready to swoon, pop music Anglophiles! "Thinking Out Loud" singer Ed Sheeran pulled the nice guy act yet again this weekend, helping bud Jake Roche of Rixton propose to longtime girlfriend Jesy Nelson of the girl group Little Mix.

Sheeran apparently traveled five hours on his day off to help his friends tie the knot at England's massive Manchester Arena.

Roche posted a pic of the event with the caption, “A year ago today I met her at Manchester Arena, so it was only right, with a little help from my friend, that this happened. Best day of my life.” Are you crying tears of love and joy yet?

Nelson described the moment to radio station Key 103

"To be honest, it was all a bit of a blur. I thought we’d finished sound check and then lo and behold, old Ed walks on. I had my back turned to him and the girls were like, ‘Jess, Jess’ and then I turned around and he sang mine and Jake’s song, ‘Tenerife Sea.’ And as soon as he sang that, I just bawled.”
