Yes you read that right, Ed Sheeran really was at a sandwich shop in New Moston of all places.
The musician was in Manchester filming a music video today, choosing a butty shop called Love Lunch on Moston Lane East as the location.
Sheeran is collaborating with Manc rapper Aitch on his new track, who is originally from New Moston.
So, Ed Sheeran is filming a video at a butty shop in New Moston RIGHT NOW. Crazy times.— Nic Bæe 🐝 (@NicLeeBee) August 1, 2019
The rapper was seen on set in a bright yellow puffer jacket, and his Instagram story shows the pair together at a table with a couple of butties.
Film crews arrived this morning at about 11.30am, and it didn’t take long for fans to swarm the area hoping for a selfie with the ginger pop superstar.

Sheeran was mobbed by fans outside the Suntrap tanning centre - hopefully he stayed away from the beds, otherwise he could be leaving Manchester looking like a lobster.
