This guy is making a living out of looking like Ed Sheeran

This chap has been dubbed the UK’s best Ed Sheeran tribute.

Jack Shephard has made a bit of a career out of looking – and sounding – like the Grammy-nominated artist.

Jack, from Reading, has been performing for the past four years, but after people constantly compared him to Ed he decided to go with it and become a tribute act for the last seven months.

The 23-year-old says his resemblance to Ed is so uncanny that he’s even been stopped in the street by fans, and is scheduled to fill in for the Sing star at an upcoming wedding.
