  • Lewis Capaldi has finally set the record straight on the inspiration behind 'Somebody To Love'.
  • The singer revealed the track isn't about Love Island's Paige Turley.

They may have dated for over a year, but Lewis Capaldi's emotional love ballad 'Somebody To Love' isn't about Paige Turley - despite what people may think.

The pair, who dated in college, are still said to be good pals after splitting when Paige was 17.

And while some people were certain the Love Island star was the inspiration behind the hit track, Lewis has since revealed otherwise. In fact, the super emotional song is all about his late grandmother.

"The song isn't about a lady, who I was in a romantic relationship with," Lewis explained. "It's about my grandmother who is dead. F**k!"

The singer, 23, went on to reveal exactly how the track came about.

He added: "One day I sat at my piano after the death and I sat down and started messing round. That's why the the piano part is so simple because I can't play anything else."

Lewis has played pretty coy when it comes to his relationship with Paige. However, he did break his silence not long after the 22-year-old headed into the villa - saying he wants a slice of the £50k if she wins.

Appearing on New Zealand show The Edge, Lewis joked: "The prize is like £50,000 and I'll be like 'Well, listen. They asked you to go on it right I'm not saying I'm the reason but also… slide me two grand'."

He continued: "She never told me she was going on it. That would have been a nice heads up. But fair play and good luck to her.

"I'll be f***ing watching it - like go on Paige, come on.When she's on a date with a boy I'll be like come on kiss him. I hope she wins."

And it appears Lewis may be in luck after Paige became the first Islander to make things official with boyfriend Finley Tapp.

Last week, Finn and Paige became an actual couple after he made a very cute little speech asking her to be his girlfriend.

"I’ve never doubted how I feel about you," he told her. "But I was guilty maybe about doubting how you felt about me."

"But when I came in here the other night, and you were single," he continued. "That was a massive sign for me. Since then, I’ve just been so happy, I’ve been over the moon. All I think now is what’s going to happen on the outside. The elephant in the room is the distance, and there are going to be some challenges, but I do want it to be something we face together."

He then went in for the close... "So will you be my girlfriend?"

We're sure Lewis wasn't jealous at all...
