Ed Sheeran fans were treated to a surprise last night as the singer took to the street in Galway to shoot a music video.

The 26-year-old star was behind the camera shooting the video himself as a lookalike busked on a Galway street corner - just like Ed did when he was starting out in his career.

The video is thought to be for his hit Galway Girl. 

He can also be seen snapping selfies with a group of fans.

Crowds had earlier gathered outside O'Connor's pub in Salthill as Ed shot more scenes inside.

Ed is in Ireland ahead of his two sold out 3Arena shows taking place tonight and tomorrow (Thursday).

Manic scenes of crowds gathering outside O'Connor's pub were captured by Enda Cunningham of the Connaught Tribune.

The singer today took to Instagram to 'thank the people of Galway'.

Thank you to Galway and all the wonderful people in it for helping us shoot a music video yesterday x
