Ed Sheeran nearly stabbed Taylor Swift with a Lord Of The Rings sword gifted to him by director Peter Jackson.

The A Team singer - who worked with the American star on her latest album Red - revealed he nearly impaled her with the dangerous weapon as they took off on her private jet.

He said: "It's like a real sword. I got it shipped over, shipped over to Omaha, so I was bringing it back to Nashville and I think [Taylor] and her crew were weirded out by it anyway. They were just like, 'Why does Ed have a sword?'

"The plane is kind of taking off and [the sword] started sliding down and I was like, 'No!' It was just about to impale Taylor."

The 22-year-old star - who was given the special sword by Jackson - is currently touring with Taylor in North America and he said he's finding it "incredible" hanging out with the singer's dancers.

He told MTV News: "You need to start going out with dancers because they turn every situation into an episode of 'Glee'. It's incredible.

"You're just there and you kind of walk in and suddenly it's strike a pose on the table and then do this kind of dance, and there's like one girl who's grinding up against this old harmonica player and they're all doing these dances."
