Ed Sheeran has told how he once impersonated superstar DJ Calvin Harris to get into a party at Madonna's house.

The singer was hanging out with Calvin's girlfriend Rita Ora after the Oscars when she suggested he come along to the after-party.

When Ed said that he wasn't sure about going because he hadn't been invited, Rita said he could pretend to be Calvin, who was invited, because nobody in the US knows what he looks like.

After getting into the party, Ed rubbed shoulders with Prince and Sir Paul McCartney.

Asked about his "maddest" experience, the singer makes the admission in the latest series of Nando's Grills videos.

He said: "Rita was like 'no-one knows what Calvin Harris looks like over here, so If if you say you're him you'll be able to get in.'

"We ended up going there and as we walked in the first person we saw was Paul McCartney... We said we're going to go up and say 'hi'.

"As we were talking we get pushed out of the way and Prince walks in and starts having a conversation. It was mental."
