(RepublicanPress.org) – Being a celebrity has its perks, right? A person gets to experience fame and fortune, no more waiting for a seat at fancy restaurants or having to endure business-class on flights. However, despite all its allure, there can be a downside to fame, as a celebrity lookalike recently revealed.
Manchester, England, resident Ty Jones recently spoke with reporters about his experiences as an Ed Sheeran lookalike.

Jones is nearly a carbon copy of his famous counterpart. Both men share the same features, height and build, hair color, and mannerisms. As a result, he said people get him confused with the famous singer/songwriter daily.
According to Jones, it’s not necessarily a good thing having to deal with starstruck fans day in and day out. Nowadays, he does all his shopping at night to avoid fawning fans.
Jones also related that he has to maintain a “low profile,” which includes wearing hats, face masks, and sunglasses. In addition, he frequently wears a disguise to avoid being chased by adoring fans. The situation has gotten crazy enough that, at times, the young man has had to ask others for help with escaping from fans who wouldn’t stop following him around. He’s even had people fall off of bicycles trying to catch a glimpse while riding past him.
