Ed Sheeran has given Calvin Harris his "seal of approval" as rumours fly that the Scottish DJ is dating Sheeran's close friend Taylor Swift.

The pair have reportedly been seeing each other since this year's Brit Awards and have been spotted out and about together numerous times, including getting cosy at a Kenney Chesney concert in Nashville on March 15.

A New Zealand radio station ZM Online asked Ed about the rumoured romance between the two stars and he replied, "No, he's cool. He's a really nice guy. Really, really nice guy... Yeah, I'd give the seal of approval...

"There are just certain people who are just nice people in the industry. I met Harris like a year ago... Really good guy."
