According to The Sun, he said: 'I was in the crowd at one of his shows and a lot of people wanted their photo with me and it became very tight. People were jumping around and jumping over to get a photo. I was like, "I am not Ed Sheeran guys. Will you stop?"

'And he sent out his security guard to make sure to come out and see I was all right. And when I met him he said, "Oh yeah I sent him out. You needed the help".'

Sam revealed that he has met Ed twice, calling him 'amazing' and the 'most down to earth guy'.

The 24-year-old, who has tattoos of Ed's albums on his wrists, added: 'I still get mistaken for him, not as much anymore!'
