Diners do a double take if they look in the kitchen at a seaside chippy.

For behind the fryer at Henry's at Hunstanton is a dead-ringer for Ed Sheeran.

Head fryer Chris Marks-Burton, who has run the kitchen at the seafront takeaway and restaurant for three years, frequently gets asked by customers if he's been moonlighting on his music career.

The 26-year-old Ed Sheeran fan has also been stopped in the street by fans of the ginger-haired Suffolk songster and asked for a selfie.

"I went to Wembley once to see Ed play live and I got mobbed afterwards," he said. "They thought I was him, there were loads of people taking my picture. If I had a pound for every time someone asked me for a photo I'd have thousands.

He said he enjoys Ed Sheeran's music, adding: "I like him, I really like his writing.

"My favourite song is probably The City. Supermarket Flower, that's a good'un as well."

Apart from his music, Ed Sheeran is renowned for his love of one chip shop staple - Heinz tomato sauce.

While Mr Marks-Burton enjoys pouring it on his chips as well, he hasn't gone quite as far as getting a tattoo featuring it, like Sheeran.
