Lewis Capaldi had revealed that he auditioned for Britain’s Got Talent before he became a number one recording artist.
The Scottish singer-songwriter, 23, dished on being told he was informed he had secured a place in the next round of the talent show – after winning over producers in the first round – but later never heard back.
Speaking to Heart Breakfast’s Jamie Theakston and Amanda Holden , on Tuesday, he confronted the BGT judge as he said: “Amanda, I went on Britain’s Got Talent and I went to the auditions.
“I went up and I sang White Blank Page by Mumford & Sons and I went on and they said to me Amanda, ‘Oh Lewis that was so great, that was lovely, we loved that’.
“And I said, ‘thank you so much for saying that’. And then I got a phone call saying, ‘Lewis that was great we’re going to put you through, and we’re going to try and hurry it through.’”
Sharing that he never progressed in the competition, he explained: “Then I never received another phone call again.”
“Oh em gee, we turned down Lewis Capaldi,” a shocked Amanda responded.
Lewis then pulled her leg by adding: “What they actually said to me, they said to me ‘Amanda Holden saw your audition tape and she hates you, on a molecular level she despises you’.”
It comes after Fans have hinted at a potential romance match between Lewis and Geordie Shore’s Charlotte Crosby.
The MTV star sent her fans into a frenzy after she posted a picture of herself cosying up to the Scottish superstar.
Taking to Instagram to share the cute snap of the pair together after Capaldi’s concert, Charlotte captioned the photo: “He’s the best.”
Both stars are known for their quirky personalities and side-splitting social media presence, so naturally devoted followers shared their excitement after seeing the pair together.
“Have babies please, and lots of them,” wrote one ecstatic fan.
Another commented: “You two would be the funniest couple ever, oh my god.”
“PLEASE get together! Both of you are my absolute favourite people ever. You look so good together,” begged a third.
Charlotte has admitted that she’s a huge fan of the Grammy-nominated singer, and hasn’t been shy about sharing her love for him and his music on social media.
