He may have won a string of awards and be nominated for yet more this year, including a Grammy for Song of the Year, but Ed Sheeran is not famed for having impeccable style.

This is something that GQ have acknowledged in their recent poll which named him the worst dressed man.

Ed acknowledged the news on Twitter, writing, "Named no.1 worst dressed male in GQ, glad they noticed," and adding, "I did wear a Burberry suit once."

The 'A Team' singer was top of the list, being declared worse dressed than the likes of Geordie Shore's James Tindale and The Wanted's Max George.

Ed Sheeran notably performed at the Olympics Closing Ceremony, which cost no more than £20 million to stage and included 4,100 people, in the casual ensemble of a red hoodie, jeans and trainers.

1. Ed Sheeran
2. Jon Cruddas
3. Alex Reid
4. Max George
5. James Tindale
6. Ivor Braka
7. Robbie Savage
8. Andrew Marr
