DO NOT expect Lewis Capaldi to calm down anytime soon – he just got banned from Tinder..
To make matters worse, the only dating app he could get into is for people who love kinky sex.
The jovial Scottish bachelor said: “I just got kicked off Tinder because people think I’m fake.
“I got kicked out of Bumble, Tinder and Hinge. Someone told me to go for it called Feeld and I went for it and it’s so sexy it’s unbelievable.
“It’s all about kink and BDSM and I think it’s outside of everything I’m in the mood for.”
He was kicked out of Tinder because the app’s bosses thought his profile was fake, despite running an entire campaign with the brand just three years ago when he met his now ex-girlfriend Katherine.
But it has made him struggle to meet down-to-earth women who aren’t obsessed with his celebrity status.
Lewis, who is vying for number one on the charts today with his new single Forget Me, explained: “At the end of the day, I’m still 25 and people are talking about power imbalances in someone famous.
“I’m trying to figure that out too because I don’t want to use my fame or have it have any effect on anyone I’m dating.
“What, I should only date famous people? It’s really weird.
“I’ll admit it’s a bit weird being on Tinder, but I met my last Tinder girlfriend and she’s pretty darn good.”
Speaking to Stephen Bartlett on The CEO Diary podcast, he added, “By some crazy coincidence, more girls are interested in me now than a couple of years ago.”
I wonder what attracted them to the millionaire in the first place Lewis Capaldi?
But even if he was still on Tinder, it doesn’t look like wedding bells will sound anytime soon.
He admitted, “The relationship would be good, but it’s not what I’m looking for at the moment.”
Asked why he uses dating apps, he said, “I like hanging out with new people and… . . s***ging and that, I think.
“If I met the right person, I would be delighted. But now it’s a little unfair to the other person, he should be quite an understanding person.
“What about children? Now it is not included in my plans at all. One of my friends has four kids and it’s none of my business.”
Strictly ready for the rumba
SSTRICTLY Come Dancing is back next Friday, and judging by the lineup, we could be in for some fireworks on and off the dance floor.
Former actress Corrie Kim Marsh is a favorite, she’s always ready for a laugh – and, in my experience, a drunken night out.
Meanwhile, retired Arsenal legend Tony Adams is exactly the kind of sports icon who will throw a wrench into the job after he turned down the producers’ offer in 2016.
And after a turbulent year, new single Countryfile host Helen Skelton may just be welcoming the fall victim of the show’s “curse”.
The thought of crappy musical numbers and sparkles at the beginning of episode 20 doesn’t fill me with delight.
But as long as the professional dancer Nadezhda Bychkova survives after dancing, at least she will have something to tune in to.
Gary instills forever
GARY BARLOW is determined to never slow down or quit his day job.
In an exclusive chat at the opening of her show ‘The Other Stage’ at the Duke of York’s Theater in London, the Take That icon said: ‘I could never imagine myself living a quieter life.
“I always thought that if I could play and sing a little, I probably could [this job] for a long time.
“But I never imagined it would be like this. I never thought I would be performing at the same level 30 years later. It’s pretty amazing. So just keep doing it is more than enough for me.
“Be it theater performances, Take That, my own concerts. Viewers deserve us to push [ourselves] to the limit and keep doing it for as long as they want us.”
SCOTT MILLS will join her fiancé Sam Vaughan when he hits Radio 2 next month.
The DJ will take over from Steve Wright on weekday afternoons, bidding an emotional farewell to Radio 1 last week after 24 years.
Scott’s partner Sam recently joined Radio 2, working on Michelle Visage’s Friday night show.
Is Michael’s ad a Crimbo cracker?
He has films like The Greatest Showman and the upcoming Robbie Williams biopic under his belt, but now director Michael Gracie has a very different task to do: to create a Sainsbury Christmas commercial.
It started a race between the big four supermarkets for the best celebratory event.
Michael worked on the retailer’s 2018 commercial depicting an elementary school Christmas show, which was voted the best holiday ad by the Conran Design Group.
Now the supermarket hopes to repeat the feat.
A source said: “Michael has some magical ideas for Sainsbury’s advertising. It will touch the strings of people’s hearts.
“He auditioned for various roles, including a multi-racial teenager who will play the lead role.
“Michael thinks he has what it takes to win the top prize for them again and will be promoting the message of love and kindness in their ads.
“He’s one of the best directors in the business and everyone who works on commercials thinks they have something really special in their hands.”
I can’t bear to think about Christmas, but I know people are looking forward to advertising.
God help us all.
HOWARD LAWRENCE followed Shawn Mendes, Sam Fender and Justin Bieber off the road after a “struggle” with his health.
The DJ – in a duet with his brother GUY – will not go on an Australian tour.
He told fans online, “Unfortunately, I’ve reached my limit now and I need some time to take care of myself.”
Sharp gangster eyes are beating
CLEAN BANDIT has many more hits to go after teaming up with chart stars and vowing to release more music than ever.
In an exclusive chat, cellist Grace Chatto said: “Recently we were in the studio with Central Cee which was really interesting and we have a song with James Arthur that is coming out.
“We did some songs with Ella Henderson and James. She is incredible. We recently got together and wrote a bunch of songs together.”
These tunes will be out soon – following the release of the new single Sad Girls last week – after Grace, Jack and Luke Patterson have secured a new deal with Atlantic Records.
Grace added: “The last few years have been a bit difficult in terms of being able to release what we wanted.
“But now we have decided that we will release something every six weeks and the label has agreed with that, so that means we can release a lot more songs, which will be a lot more fun.
“We write songs every day, but last year we only released one song. We couldn’t keep doing it.”
