Continuing, he wrote "It's clearly f***in' awesome".

Sheeran's Twitter account quickly returned to the social media site, and his bio now reads: "I don't use this anymore, please follow me on @teddysphotos on Instagram, lots of love x". He's lovely, he's a team player, he wants to do a good job, he takes direction, he's very open.

Game of Thrones' seventh season premiered today and will air every Sunday on HBO for the next several weeks.

So, now that's we've gotten over Sheeran's cameo, how was he to work with? In an interview with The Daily Beast, Podeswa said, "For me, I'm actually a bit surprised that people have made that much fuss about it. He blends into the world of the show in a nice way where if you didn't have all these associations with him and his musical career, nobody would even blink about his presence on the show".

"They will hopefully rectify that by having Arya skewer him", one person said via social media after Sunday's airing, while another called it a "really bad, unnecessary cameo".

"I go on it and there's nothing but people saying mean things", he reportedly told The Sun. "He's a big fan of the show and was really excited to be a part of it", GOT director added. Gary Lightbody from Snow Patrol, Will Champion from Coldplay, Sigur Rós, and nearly everyone from Mastodon have all been on Game of Thrones.

Despite any backlash, Sheeran seems to be on an acting roll.

Sheeran has previously had cameo roles in the likes of Bridget Jones's Baby as well as The Bastard Executioner.

Viewers were less than impressed when the Shape Of You singer popped up in a scene with Arya Stark (played by Maisie Williams). While this series has featured some cameos in the past, the vast majority of them are the blink-and-you'll-miss-it variety. Leave your comments below!
