English singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran, who had announced on Oct. 24 that he was self-isolating for two weeks after having contracted the coronavirus, said Tuesday he has tested negative for the disease and is free to appear on "Saturday Night Live" this weekend.

"I'm released from covid isolation today, so if you see me out and about I've had the all clear and done my quarantine," the four-time Grammy Award winner, 30, wrote on Twitter and Instagram. "Excited to hit the ground running with work again, and SNL is still on, so tune in Saturday, see you there."

This is the pop singer-songwriter's third appearance as a musical guest on the NBC late-night sketch-comedy series. Actor Kieran Culkin ("Succession") is the first-time host. Sheeran on Friday released his latest album, "=" (pronounced "Equals").
