Lewis Capaldi has confirmed that he's in a relationship and has "never been happier."

The singer confirmed the news during a video chat with a fan, writes The Scottish Sun.

He joked that his girlfriend "would kill him" if he didn't admit it.

Lewis Capaldi was on zoom when he was asked whether he prefers being in a relationship or the single life.

He said: "Well, I'm in a relationship so if I said the other one, my girlfriend would kill me."

He added that he hasn't publicly revealed his relationship status: "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."

The Scottish Sun reckon it's student Catherine Halliday, who Capaldi has been spotted with on multiple occasions since February.

He said of his girlfriend: "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."

He also said he's "never been happier" but the couple have not been able to live together during lockdown: "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]."

Capaldi recently joked his next album would be 'meme-based' because of lockdown.
