SCOTTISH superstar Lewis Capaldi has officially confirmed he is off the market after penning dozens of heartbreaking hits about love. 

The singer told his fans he has a new girlfriend during a live Zoom video chat where he joked that his new beau would kill him if he didn't admit it. 

The star, from Whitburn, West Lothian, was asked whether he prefers being in a relationship or the single life during the Zoom chat.

The Scottish Sun reports he said: "Well, I'm in a relationship so if I said the other one, my girlfriend would kill me.

"I've never told anybody that I'm in a relationship, so there you go.

"It's an exclusive for you, right here right now."

He added: "She's got red hair, she's got quite a posh voice. And that's that, that's all you're getting.

"The thing is, you backed me into a corner. If I'd said [I prefer] 'being single', I would never have heard the end of it. So there you go."

The Someone You Loved singer also said the new couple have had to live separately during lockdown.

He said: "I finished my tour the week before quarantine started, and she was here for that.

"And then when we heard we were going into quarantine, the day before quarantine started, she was going back up [home]."

He added: "I'm not good to be around that often. Like a little ten-minute spell, keep me there, great.

"I think for everyone's sanity it's good if it's just little doses. Take me in doses."
