Lewis Capaldi performing in Lithuania earlier this year
Lewis Capaldi’s fans got a surprise at the weekend when the chart-topping singer appeared to share his phone number on his Instagram page.
On Sunday, the Scottish star posted a picture of an iPhone contact supposedly showing his personal phone number on his grid.
However, all was not as it appeared.
You see, when fans of Lewis’ rang the number, they were played a pre-recorded message from the man himself discussing his new music.
“Hello there, it’s Lewis Capaldi here, just wanna say thank you for listening to Pointless this week,” he said, referring to his latest single (and not the gameshow of the same name, for those who were curious).
Lewis added: “When you get off this call you’ll have a text to give my new song a download or to buy the CD. Downloading on iTunes and Amazon really helps, as does getting one of the signed CDs.
“Go and buy it now because my label are demanding yet another number one single. Let me tell you guys, I don’t know if I’ve got it in me. So, give me your money and in return I will give you my body and soul.”

Lewis is currently gearing up for the release of his second album Broken By Desire To Be Heavenly Sent, which will arrive in May 2023.
His new album will include the number one hit Forget Me and his latest musical offering Pointless.
The track was co-written by Ed Sheeran – although Lewis previously admitted to having to switch up one of the Grammy winner’s rather outdated lyrics on their collaboration.
