Ed Sheeran has been having a chat about the numerous tattoos that cover his fit body, talking about the inspiration behind his many permanent inkings.

Eddie Spagheddi - who is often mistaken for the Prince despite the fact the only real similarity between them is red hair (COME ON PEOPLE, LOOK AT FACES) - jokes that his inkings are a way of telling him apart from Harry, particularly in the aftermath of photo-gate, which saw a naked pic of the Prince make its way into the tabloids.

"This is why I got so many tattoos," he told The Daily Star. "So when he is seen naked again, people know it's definitely not me."

He added: "I bumped into Harry and took a picture on my phone with him and he said: 'This better not end up in any papers mate'."

OH BUT ED, we'd really quite like to see that photo. We'd say 'gizzus a peek' but we don't want to get you beheaded for treason or something. What do you lot make of Ed's comments?
