British singer James Blunt says his friend and singer Ed Sheeran made him "uncomfortable" while they were writing songs together.

He says it was because Sheeran pushed him to write more confessional lyrics.

Blunt spoke about it when he was discussing Make me better, a song Sheeran co-wrote for Blunt's album The Afterlove, during an interview.

He said: "It's a song I'm uncomfortable with for that reason. Ed said 'Come on, it's your job, you veil a lot of things', for that reason it was great to work with him."

Blunt added: "He is so open and he dragged me into that space."

The singer also said he and Sheeran often joke that if they started a band, it would be called "Limp Willy and the Disappointments".
