Jones opened up about being a celebrity doppelganger to the Mirror U.K., where he admitted that while he is a Sheeran fan, got to meet the singer and gets free club appearances (though he cannot sing), the look-alike game has some major drawbacks in his love life.

"He's such a big artist and I'm a massive fan of his but now it's like I can't escape it, people go mad when they think they're meeting Ed Sheeran," Jones admitted. "It's made my relationships worse I'd say because now I have to weigh up if they like me for me or are they're just interested in me because I'm the next best thing to Ed if they really like him."

"When girls ask me for pictures in the streets it's annoyed some of my girlfriends in the past and caused problems," he continued. "It's hard to explain because it's not like I can help it and I don't like being horrible to people and deny them a picture if they want one."
