Ed Sheeran Lookalike Speaks Out About Struggling To Find Love Due To How He Looks

A few months ago, I was on TheLADbible staff night out, and I saw Ed Sheeran across the bar. I ran over in excitement hoping to be able to get a picture with him, but the girl he was with told me to fuck off. It was awesome.

Until the next morning, when I realised that it probably wasn't Ed. I was just really drunk. Then, this afternoon I saw this bloke, Ty Jones, featured on the Mirror and talking about how he was struggling to find love. Then the penny dropped. I definitely didn't meet Ed. I met Ty. And probably made him very uncomfortable. Sorry, Ty.

Turns out that he's often mistaken for the ginger, acoustic guitar slapping, British treasure. And that's stopping him from getting a missus. But how?!

21-year-old Ty, from Sale in Manchester, said: "When Ed became really famous I had people always coming up to me and talking to me and wanting my picture - it was crazy.

"He's such a big artist and I'm a massive fan of his but now it's like I can't escape it, people go mad when they think they're meeting Ed Sheeran.

"It's made my relationships worse I'd say because now I have to weigh up if they like me for me or are they're just interested in me because I'm the next best thing to Ed if they really like him.

"When girls ask me for pictures in the streets it's annoyed some of my girlfriends in the past and caused problems.

"It's hard to explain because it's not like I can help it and I don't like being horrible to people and deny them a picture if they want one."

As you can see, he even managed to meet the man himself and said it was like 'looking in a mirror'.

He continued: "I've had a few photos of me go viral because people thought they were Ed Sheeran which is mad because I don't expect it and my friends and family tag me in these pictures all the time."

Apparently, the pair are planning on meeting up again soon to 'hang out'. Turns out looking like one of the biggest pop stars on the planet isn't all bad then after all.

Still, sorry about running up to you that night, Ty.
