WATCH: This Morning Ripped Into By Viewers Over Ed Sheeran Lookalike

An Ed Sheeran lookalike took to the This Morning sofa on Tuesday, and show presenters Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield were blown away with his appearance.

ASDA worker Wesley Byrne told Hollz and Schofey how he's constantly mistaken for the world famous singer by supermarket shoppers...

He also confessed that members of the public were always mistakenly asking him for selfies too.

But viewers back at home weren't so impressed with the lookalike, claiming that despite his red hair and glasses, he didn't quite match up to Ed's standards.

They flocked to Twitter to mock the ITV chat show's choice of guest, with one snapping: "Come on really... Why does he dress the same have the same kind of hair style and glasses.. Or is that just a happy coincidence?"

"Apparently this guy on This Morning looks like ed sheeran. He can't even pretend to play the guitar right. How he gets mobbed is beyond me," tweeted a second.

While a third declared: "You can so tell that he is clearly not Ed Sheeran."


"If this guy is Ed Sheeran, I must be Phil Mitchell ," joked a fourth person watching at home.

As a final slammed: "On #ThisMorning right now someone claiming he's the double of Ed Sheeran. He just has ginger hair - that's where it stops. 2018 is annoying me already."

The tweets didn't stop there though, and continued to poor in on social media...

Bit mean, guys!

Holly and Phil were pretty taken with Wesley though, and they even told him to start a career as a lookalike. The presenting duo seemed to hint that talent agencies would all be soon trying to sign him up.

The Ed lookalike did admit that he doesn't have the heart to tell young kids that he's not actually the 'Shape Of You' musician.

Apparently all those selfies get him into a bit of trouble too. Might not be in ASDA for much longer though, Wes!
