Matt asked Seann what his tattoo meant, with the former Strictly Come Dancing contestant explaining it’s a nod to his favourite band Blink-182.
When asked who his favourite band are, the former Health Secretary replied: "Quite mainstrean. I’m not going to put a tattoo of Ed Sheeran on my neck."
Seann asked: "You like Ed Sheeran?"
Matt replied: "Love him, yeah… and I’m from Suffolk as well."
The politician then started singing an Ed Sheeran song: "You between my arms… bare foot on the grass… don’t get me singing… listening to my favourite song…… What’s it called? Perfect? I love it."
Unsurprisingly, viewers at home rushed to their keyboards to discuss his vocal ability.
Taking to Twitter, one fan penned: "Matt Hancock singing Ed Sheeran on national TV I have now absolutely seen it all."
Another added: "Goodness this scene with Seann and Matt is cringe. Bonding over their love of Ed Sheeran."
A third person posted: "Nor behave why is Matt Hancock singing on the TV, stop the planet I want to get off."
While a fourth social media user said: "Matt Hancock singing or just being on this show actually makes me want to throw my tv out the window."
Back In 2017, Matt revealed himself to be a big Ed fan.
Asked for his favourite song and album in a magazine he said Ed Sheeran’s Galway Girl, and Ed Sheeran’s ÷, respectively.
He added: "Ed Sheeran has been amazing for the music industry this year and the whole album is fantastic, but Galway Girl is probably my favourite song from it."
In January 2018, when he was Culture Secretary, Matt went on Twitter and wrote: "Congrats to the brilliant Ed Sheeran on his double Grammys win last night.
"Here’s a full roundup of last night’s winners," before adding a newspaper article on his success."
