The song they performed to was Nancy Mulligan, which tells the story of Sheeran’s grandparents’ love story.

As the singer describes in the lyrics, his grandfather William Sheeran from the North, fell in love with Nancy Mulligan from the South during the Second World War.

Although William was a Protestant and Nancy was a Catholic the two got married and have eight children together.

It is not the first time Ed has referenced his Irish heritage in his music.

The song creates the perfect soundtrack for the twins to show off their fancy footwork.

Take a look for yourself.
