Does Shane Filan's new single 'Me and the Moon' sound similar to Ed Sheeran's hit 'Photograph'?

Shane Filan has just released his new album Right Here following the release of the single Me and the Moon last month.
Former Westlife star Filan appeared on Loose Women on Friday afternoon with manager Louis Walsh to publicise the album's release and play a segment of the single.
While it's a powerful ballad which certainly shows off Filan's fine voice at its best, some fans have pointed out that the chorus sounds uncannily like that of Ed Sheeran's hit Photograph, which released in May last year.
One fan commented on Shane's official YouTube channel, "Great song. But I can't help but detect some similarity with Ed Sheeran's Photograph? Is it just me? Again, great song."
Another wrote, "I can't help but hear Ed Sheerans Photograph in the chorus."
Over on Twitter another user @ColinBassGuy wrote, "I can't be the only one hearing the similarity between 'Shane Filan - Me and the Moon' and 'Ed Sheeran - Photograph' can I?".
Have a listen to both songs and see what you think:
