Lewis Capaldi's ex girlfriend, Paige Turley was the inspiration behind his number one track

'Get yourself a man that can do both' was surely a quote inspired by Lewis Capaldi.

The 23-year-old star has the voice of an angel with lyrics that would melt your heart and make you long for a partner who's that in touch with his feelings and then, IRL, Lewis is an absolute gas ticket who could equally be a standup comedian.

Funny AND romantic, ladies.

But, anyway, it turns out Lewis' incredible lyrics aren't just created from a good imagination but from his own personal experience as Someone You Loved is apparently written about his ex, Paige Turley.

The pair who met in college hooked up and were reportedly dating for a year before Paige called things off.

A source told The Sun that “Lewis was gutted. He really loved her.”

Continuing, they added:

“She’s the girl. The song and his album is clearly inspired by love and he loved her — he really did.

“Paige dated Lewis while they were both at college from around 2014 to 2016. They were on and off and together just over a year. It’s funny that his songs now mean so much to so many. But the real story behind it is boy meets girl.

“She must be thrilled she helped inspire such beautiful music.”

Speaking about the former love that he'd never reveal the name of, Lewis previously said:

"We dated for a year and a half then she left me. Then I wrote an album about it and I still think about it every day."

Be still my beating heart.
