Lewis Capaldi has spoken about his girlfriend after the couple went public this year.
The singer is known for singing pretty sad break-up songs, but it looks like things are on the up for his love life.
The 26-year-old and Ellie MacDowall were seen getting up close and personal, at the afterparty of the awards bash, back in February.
And now, with the cat well and truly out of the bag, Capaldi has opened up about their relationship.
In his own unique and grounded style, the Scottish popstar said he was on cloud nine, explaining to Radio 2 DJ Scott Mills, that he was really happy with MacDowall.
“I have a girlfriend and that’s going really well, I am happy chappy, she’s a lovely lady I feel good about everything," he told the presenter.
He also discussed the meaning behind his new track, 'Wish You the Best', which like many of his songs, is about struggling to deal with a relationship ending, joking it was a 'really happy' summer tune.
"It’s about someone moving on and that feeling where you know it’s the best thing for that person," he said.
"But all you say is ‘good luck I’m really happy for you’ but actually you are dying inside and want to tell them all the things you miss about them and why they should stay with you - so just a really happy song for the summer!"
This comes after Capaldi was seen serenading a plane full of passengers recently.
Ahead of the release of his new album, Broken By Desire To Be Heavenly Sent, he jumped on a British Airways flight and belted out some tunes.
In a video posted to social media, Capaldi comes out from behind some blue curtains, pushing a trolley as passengers look on, shocked.
“Hello! Do you want anything from the trolley,” he says while handing out some refreshments.
He then asks one of the passengers for a Pringle, while others capture the bizarre moment on their phones.
“I apologise because someone is sleeping,” the singer says before treating the crowd to a few lines from Wish You The Best.
“I have never seen him that close, I am like wow,” one stunned teenager says.
Another says: “It just doesn’t seem real."
Concluding his impromptu performance, Capaldi jokes: “Sorry for disturbing your flight, if you don’t know my name, it's Ed Sheeran."
He's just such a lovely guy, isn't he?
