Piers Morgan has offered some sage advice to Ed Sheeran after he quit Twitter in the wake of his Game Of Thrones cameo.

With the influx of negative comments raining on Sheeran's Twitter account, the singer temporarily deleted his Twitter, a day after his cameo role in "Game of Thrones" Episode 1 - "Dragonstone".

"I really, genuinely believe that if you didn't know who he was, you would have just thought he was one of the gang, effortlessly", Podeswa says. [It] had nothing to do with what people said about my Game of Thrones cameo, because I am in Game of Thrones.

"It's clearly fuckin' awesome", he added. Ed Sheeran appeared in Sunday's season 7 premiere of "Game of Thrones" and his act managed to split the Internet in two. "He's lovely, he's a team player, he wants to do a good job, he takes direction, he's very open".

Although, Sheeran's absence from Twitter was short lived as he returned to social media with a caveat.

"He was appropriate for the part because he needed to sing", he told Newsweek. However, it seems not all Throne fans were happy about his performance, in which the popstar-cum-mercenary is filmed serenading by a campfire.

Ed Sheeran's Twitter account is back online hours after it suddenly vanished.

Earlier, GoT have already invited several artists to take the part in different episodes: Coldplay drummer Will Champion and Gary Lightbody of Snow Patrol were more hard to spot in their scenes.

I think his lovely voice was used to great effect and he just has a really nice presence. The hoo-ha seems to be from things that are outside the world of the show.

Lastly, Podeswa pointed out that Sheeran is "a enormous fan of the show" and said he felt for the singer in the wake of the backlash.

The presenter then offered Sheeran some advice, saying: "Ed come on mate - you're tougher than this".
