'I've a bone to pick with him' - Ed Sheeran meets Love/Hate’s Nidge in London
Top singer Ed Sheeran had a big weekend as he shared the stage with Elton John at Wembley and later met Irish actor Tom Vaughan Lawlor aka Nidge from Love/Hate.
The 24-year-old singer said it was an “absolute honour” to share the stage with legendary pop-star Elton John.
The duo were headlining the sold-out Wembley Stadium concerts, and there was one unlikely fan in the green-room ready to wish Sheeran good luck.
Ed took to his Instagram to share a video of himself with Irish actor Tom Vaughan Lawlor, famed for his role as drug kingpin Nidge in Love/Hate.
Appearing in character, Tom said to the camera in that distinctive chilling accent, "Alright man, here with the main man Ed, about to go out and watch him on the show, can't wait for it".
Ed, a noted fan of the crime series, replied in his plummy English accent, "Nidgey, I have a bone to pick with him.”
The joke was lost on some of Ed’s foreign fans who questioned what language the actor was speaking, while his Irish followers were united in their praise.
“Two legends,” some commentators wrote, while others romanticised about how great it would be should Ed make an appearance in any future seasons of Love/Hate.
