Ed Sheeran claims Beyoncé made him ''look better'' than he really is.

The 'Thinking Out Loud' hitmaker performed an acoustic version of 'Drunk In Love' with the 34-year-old singer at the Global Citizen Festival in New York's Central Park last weekend and was delighted to work with someone so ''talented''.

He said: ''She is a very talented performer and makes me look better than I am.''

Later this month, the 24-year-old singer will release 'Jumpers For Goalposts', a concert film shot when he performed at Wembley Stadium earlier this year but he joked the subject matter will actually be actually be X-rated.

Asked what's next for him on US TV show 'Extra', he said: ''I'm releasing a movie - a very, very hardcore porno ... No, I'm releasing a concert film, which I filmed at my three nights at Wembley.''

Despite his global fame, the 'Photograph' hitmaker admits even his fans still get confused about his identity.

He said: ''I look on Instagram and I see so many girls posting shots in pubs with fat ginger dudes and are like, 'We met Ed today.' They genuinely believe it's me.''
