The 22-year-old star may not be qualified, but he's certainly got our vote.

Theresa May finally announced her resignation last week, but no one can seem to agree on who should take her spot as Prime Minister.

With the likes of Boris Johnson, Michael Gove and Jeremy Hunt fighting for the role, it's no surprise the country is looking for an alternative.

Now Lewis Capaldi, everyone's favourite Instagram funny man at the minute,has put his best foot forward to take the spot.

The public is looking for someone who can do a decent job executing the mess that is Brexit, and Scottish-born Capaldi could be the best man for it.

The 22-year-old singer-songwriter has made a name for himself for putting silly videos on social media alongside the huge chart success of his debut album, Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent.

Ahead of a recent appearance on German TV show Aspekte, host Jo Schück noted the 'coincidence' of Theresa May stepping down as the Tories' 'number one' just as Capaldi's album reached number one.

Jo said: "It's just two days before the European elections results, right? And the interesting thing is Theresa May, your number one, is stepping back."

Lewis replied: "And who got the new number one in the UK? Me. I will do it. I will be the next prime minister."

Well, everyone else who's tried to sort Brexit has failed for the most part - so maybe it's not the worst idea after all.

Plus, we'd be guaranteed some juicy videos from inside the Brexit talks. A fresh face might be just what we need to get us through Brexit exhaustion. Lewis for PM!

Capaldi's new album, Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent, came out earlier this month and was the fastest-selling of 2019 so far. Who's to say he couldn't also win a stressful leadership race?
