The 'Lego House' star speaks to Capital FM about who he plans to watch backstage.

Ed Sheeran has said he's worried One Direction might beat him up when both acts play Capital FM's Jingle Bell Ball in London tonight (4th December).

The 'Lego House' made the comment jokingly during a backstage interview with Capital FM's Dave Berry.

Asked who he was looking forward to seeing, Ed said Harry Styles had invited them into their dressing room but admitted he was worried about accepting the invitation.

"Harry from One Direction just messaged me and said, 'Come in the dressing room', but I don't think I'll be doing that because I'll probably get beaten up by them or something – they're violent lads," he joked.

Ed also said he was excited to see Wretch 32 backstage because they have been friends for four years.

"I think Emeli Sande's wonderful – I'd like to say hi to her," he added. "My dressing room's next to Jessie J so I'll say hi to her."

One Direction and Ed Sheeran are due to perform as part of an all-star day two line-up that also includes Jessie J, JLS, The Saturdays, Emeli Sande and Wretch 32.

The Jingle Bell Ball continues today after a successful opening night yesterday (3rd December) which saw the likes of Rihanna, Calvin Harris, Olly Murs, The Wanted, Jason Derulo, Pixie Lott, Labrinth, and Rizzle Kicks wowing the O2 Arena.

Capital FM will be coming live from the Jingle Bell Ball at London's O2 Arena all weekend. Keep checking Capitalfm.com for all the latest news, photo galleries and interviews from this year's festive spectacular.
