Ed Sheeran wants to give his song 'Shape of You' to Rihanna and thinks it would be "cool" to work with Jedward

Ed Sheeran wants to work with Rihanna.

The 26-year-old singer may have had a number one single with his track 'Shape of You' but he'd love the Bajan beauty to also record a version of it as he's such a big fan of her work.

He said: "I've loved Rihanna since 'Pom de Replay' and I kind of still want her to do 'Shape of You', she can just have it, she can take it from me."

And when BBC Radio 1 DJ Clara Amfo suggested they do a remix together, he added: "I would love that, I think she's great...

"She's super fun too, every now and then you see Instagram photos of her doing really wild stuff she looks like she's fun."

And the 'Castle On the Hill' hitmaker also revealed a surprising idea for a collaboration - pop duo and former 'X Factor' contestants Jedward, aka twins John and Edward Grimes.

He asked the presenter: Have you got Jedward coming in later? I'm really excited about that.

"You know they have one phone between them and when I had a phone, they'd text me and interrupt each other, like, 'No John, he does not want to speak to you.' "

And when Clara confirmed Ed will be singing five songs - including a cover of Little Mix's 'Touch' - on the show's live lounge later on Tuesday (21.02.17), she stressed Jedward wouldn't be joining him.

But Ed replied: "Can you imagine though? That would be pretty cool - Jed Sheeran."

Folky rapping singer-songwriter on the block, mooning over girls and stuff, such as on the big hit 'The A-Team'.
