Ed Sheeran first got a call from Elton when his debut EP stormed the iTunes chart. 

The singer recalled: "I had a call from an L.A. number - it was Elton John. He said he'd heard the EP and thought it was fantastic."

Ed, who has been signed to the rock veteran's music label, told Metro.co.uk that Elton has a ''hands-on'' approach to his artists and phones regularly.

The last time they spoke, it was about Lego. The 20-year-old was working on a model, and Elton happens to live near Lego Land in Windsor.

In fact, Elton is thinking of taking his young son there.
