Shape of you: Toddler who resembles Ed Sheeran now an Internet hit

A two-year-old girl from Britain has caught the fancy of the Internet for her uncanny resemblance to British singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran.

A photo of Isla Walton, who is from Exeter city in south-west England's Devon county, has gone viral online. One post has garnered 177,000 likes and 80,000 retweets on Twitter.

The little tyke has been said to "look more like Ed Sheeran than Ed Sheeran".

The photo of her was posted by her aunt, Stacey Walton, who told The Sun in a report on Thursday (March 16) that "everyone comments saying how she's a mini Ed".

Ms Walton, who calls her niece "Baby Sheeran", said the toddler loves Sheeran's music.

She also claimed that little Isla "tries to sing along to the words and has a dance".

This is 2 year old Isla Walton from Exeter, who does she look like? 😁 Do you have a little doppelgänger? #EdSheeran #YourLoveChildsCute
