SINGER Lewis Capaldi was once in a band with his ex Paige Turley.

The 23-year-old, who is headlining his second Hydro show tonight, performed alongside Love Island star Paige and YungBlud guitarist Adam Warrington in a band formed at the college where the trio attended.

The group were part of the HND Music course at New College Lanarkshire's Motherwell Campus. 

Lewis and Paige dated on and off from 2014 and 2016 after meeting on the course. 

Adam recently accepted an NME Award as guitarist for singer/songwriter Yungblud, beating the likes of Stormzy for the Best Video accolade.

Paige, a former Britain’s Got Talent semi-finalist, won Love Island, stealing the nation’s hearts and winning £50k with Finley Tapp.  

While Lewis picked up awards for Best New Artist and Best British Single at the recent Brit Awards.

Glasgow Times:

Lecturer Scott Cowie said: “I remember we once took two bands from our music course at NCL to compete in a UK wide music competition. The first round was held in the North of England where the above photo was taken. Our students worked very hard and, in my opinion, we put two bands together that were more than capable of at least reaching the final - which would later be held in one of the biggest arenas in England.

“One of our bands did make it through to the final but weren’t even awarded a bronze which I felt was unfair, extreme bias aside.

“What made it worse is that the band in this photo didn’t even get past the first round, which I had real difficulty accepting, (again, extreme bias aside).

“Devastated at the results I asked the judges for some feedback and was told our students ‘just weren’t up to the standards’.

“Although we were deflated at the time, we encouraged the students to pick themselves up and carry on, using the rejection as a learning curve to become bigger and better. And bigger and better they certainly have become.

“Recent events prove that I wasn’t just being extremely biased towards our students. Brit Awards, NME Awards, Britain’s Got Talent success. I don’t think there can be much more success for one group of students!

“So to all our current students starting out in their career, all our past students working hard to get where they want to be, and all our students of the future who I hope are inspired by our track record – never be discouraged and always believe in yourself. Because at NCL we will always believe in you.”
