Ed Sheeran has made no secret of his admiration for Saoirse Ronan, saying she's a "phenomenal talent."

Speaking on the Eoghan McDermott Show on 2FM, the singer spoke about filming the video for Galway Girl with Oscar-nominated actress Saoirse in Salthill earlier this week.

"Saoirse is a phenomenal talent," he said.

"Off-screen, she's normal and just a cool person. Then as soon as the camera goes on she just turns. It's amazing to watch. I've never really seen an actor or actress that good."

The Shape of You singer is set to take to the stage at the 3 Arena for his second Dublin concert on Thursday night, and is currently feeling a bit under the weather with a chesty cough.

"It's the first time that I've ever played in Dublin and gone to bed at midnight. I slept until 1pm today."

The pop star revealed that he was gifted a Coppers Gold Card during his visit, although he won't be using it himself.

"I've heard it's a bit of a spot. I'll give it to my little cousin, he'll have fun with it."
