The ‘ordinary guy’ who dreamt of working on a fishing boat is Ed Sheeran’s lookalike and he’s revealed that he’s forced to live ‘in disguise’ because of his incredible likeness to the pop star.

Ty Jones says he’s had to change his daily routine, such as doing his grocery shopping at night, but he still works as a full-time lookalike when necessary!

When looking at Jones, he has the same hair colour, facial features, and is the same height as Ed Sheeran.   

It seems Jones is enjoying the attention so much that he’s even been inspired to start playing the guitar!

Jones says: "I've had them all, from fans crying and shaking to a starstruck cyclist who couldn't stop staring at me and crashed their bike while still making eye contact."
