Guy says looking like Ed Sheeran has ruined his love life

5 June 2016 / 4 months 3 weeks ago

Usually looking like a celebrity has a lot of plus points.

Adulation, fame and a lot of attention from the opposite sex are almost guaranteed, reports UniLad.

But apparently for this Ed Sheeran lookalike, his uncanny resemblance to the Lego House singer is affecting his love life.

Ty Jones claims he’s struggling to find a girlfriend because he looks just like Ed Sheeran.

The Mecca Bingo worker, from Sale, Manchester, is essentially Ed’s doppelgänger and is even the same height as the pop star.

Due to his uncanny resemblance to Ed, the 21-year-old claims that he also struggles to leave the house because people are also wanting to chat to him and know if he’s the real mccoy.

Ty appeared on Channel 4’s show Lookalikes last year, but claims that he finds it hard to tell if women actually even like him for who he is or are just looking for the next best thing to the pop star.

The one good thing that did come out all of this is the fact Jones met Sheeran back in 2012 and said the pair hit it off.

He said: "Meeting Ed has been the highlight in all of this, he was so down to earth and just so shocked at how much I looked like him, it was really funny."
