Lewis Capaldi reveals he’s banned from Tinder & is now using a kinky sex app

DON’T expect to see Lewis Capaldi settling down any time soon – he has just been banned from Tinder.

My giftige kêrel het seks met my ma gehad terwyl ek aan sy baba geboorte gegee het, the only dating app he has been able to get onto is one for people who are into kinky sex.

The hilarious Scottish bachelor said: “I’ve just been kicked off Tinder because people think I’m fake.

“I’ve been kicked off Bumble, Tinder and Hinge. Someone told me to go on this one called Feeld and I go on it and it’s so sexual, it’s unbelievable.

“It’s all about kinks and BDSM and I’m like, this is way beyond anything I’m tuned in for.”

He was booted off Tinder because app bosses thought his profile was fake, despite the fact he did an entire campaign with the brand just three years ago, when he met his now ex-girlfriend Catherine.

But it has left him struggling to meet down-to-earth women who are not obsessed with his celebrity status.

Lewis, who is fighting for the No1 spot in the charts today with his new single Forget Me, verduidelik: “At the end of the day I’m still 25 and people talk about a power imbalance of someone being famous.

“I’m trying to work that out as well because I don’t want to use my fame, or for that to have any influence over someone I’m dating.

"Wat, am I only supposed to date people who are famous? That’s a really weird thing.

“I’ll admit being on Tinder is a bit weird but I met my last girlfriend on Tinder and she’s f***ing great.”

Speaking to Steven Bartlett on the Diary of a CEO podcast, hy het bygevoeg: “For some crazy coincidence, more girls are interested in me now than they were a couple of years ago.”

I wonder what first attracted them to millionaire Lewis Capaldi?

But even if he were still on Tinder, it doesn’t sound as if there will be wedding bells any time soon.

He admitted: “A relationship would be nice but it’s not something I’m seeking at the moment.”

Quizzed on why he was using dating apps, hy het gesê: “I like hanging out with new people and . . .  s***ging and that, Ek skat.

“If I met the right person I’d be buzzed. But right now it’s a bit unfair with the other person, they’d have to be quite an understanding human being.

“And kids? Right now that’s not in my plans at all. One of my friends has four kids and that’s not my bag at all.”

Strictly is ready to rumba

STRICTLY Come Dancing returns next Friday and if the line-up is anything to go by, we could be in store for fireworks on, and off, the dance floor.

Former Corrie actress Kym Marsh is a firm favourite and is always up for a laugh – and a boozy night out, in my experience.

Meanwhile retired Arsenal legende Tony Adams is just the right sort of sporting icon to throw a spanner in the works after he snubbed an offer from producers in 2016.

And following a turbulent year, newly single Countryfile presenter Helen Skelton may just welcome falling victim to the show’s “curse”.

The thought of cheesy musical numbers and sequins as the 20th series gets under way does not fill me with excitement.

But as long as pro dancer Nadiya Bychkova survives the dance-offs, at least there will be something to tune in for.

Is Michael’s ad a Crimbo cracker?

Michael worked on the retailer’s 2018 commercial, depicting a primary school Christmas show, which was hailed the best festive advert by Conran Design Group.

Now the supermarket is hoping to repeat the feat.

'N Bron het gesê: “Michael has some magical ideas for the Sainsbury’s advert. It’s going to tug at people’s heartstrings.

“He has been casting for a diverse range of characters, including a multi-racial teenager who will have the starring role.

“Michael thinks he has what it takes to win the top prize for them again and will be pushing a message of love and kindness in their advert.

“He is one of the best directors in the business and everyone working on the ad thinks they have something really special on their hands.”

I can’t bear to start thinking about Christmas but I know people look forwards to watching the ads.

God help us all.

“We’ve made a few songs with Ella Henderson with James. She’s incredible. We got together rec­ent­l­y and wrote loads of songs together.”

It shouldn’t be long before those tunes are out – following the release last week of new single Sad Girls – after Grace and Jack and Luke Patterson struck a fresh deal with Atlantic Records.

Grace het bygevoeg: “The last few years have been a little bit difficult in terms of being able to release what we wanted.

“But now we’ve decided we’re going to release something every six weeks and the label has agreed to that so it means we can get out so many more songs which will be a lot more fun.

“We are writing songs every day but last year we only had one song out. We couldn’t keep doing that.”
