Scottish singer Lewis Capaldi has revealed which song he wrote about Love Island star and ex-girlfriend Paige Turley.

During a 30-minute greatest hits set at Seven Dials Market in the West End on Saturday, Lewis announced which song he had written about the blonde beauty.

The 23-year-old, who is behind chart favourites such as Before You Go and Someone You Loved, told the crowd that his song Hold Me While You Wait was about a woman he was dating, where he thought it was “going well, and the lady has different ideas," according to The Sun.

Capaldi, who was performing as part of a surprise gig to promote Samsung's Galaxy S20 phone range, continued: “She thinks it's going horribly and then she leaves, and you're quite sad about it, and you write an album about it.

“And then she ends up going on Love Island.”
