Ed Sheeran wants to film a ‘love scene’ with Dame Helen Mirren

"I always loved Helen Mirren".

Ed Sheeran has opened up on his Hollywood ambitions, and says that he wants to film a “love scene” with Dame Helen Mirren.

The singer, who is set to headline Glastonbury Festival on Sunday evening, revealed his desire to get intimate with the Oscar-winning actress in an interview with ITV.

He said: “I always loved Helen Mirren, me and Helen Mirren could do a love scene. I guess that sounds weird, doesn’t it?”

However, he also admitted that his lack of acting skills may act as a hindrance.

“I’m not really a good actor, and she’s a very good actress, so I don’t think she’d want to do it”, he said.

Meanwhile, Ed Sheeran’s backstage rider for his Glastonbury headline slot was recently revealed – and it shows him to be a man of simple tastes.

The guitar-wielding superstar has reportedly requested a bottle of Robinsons Squash, a six-pack of Coca-Cola, a six-pack of Diet Coke, a six-pack of Fanta Orange, a six-pack of Sprite and a jar of Manuka Honey.

The entire rider is said to cost a relatively modest £57.31, with the most expensive item being the Manuka Honey – which costs £13.99 for a jar.
