THE lovable Scottish crooner Lewis Capaldi is at loggerheads with the former Oasis songwriter and guitarist Noel Gallagher after the 52-year-old Mancunian compared the Someone You Loved singer with Star Wars’ Wookiee warrior, Chewbacca.

It’s not the first time the pair have clashed with Gallagher calling Capaldi’s music “f*****g w***k” in a radio interview in June before the cheeky Scot entertained his fans – and won many more – by swaggering onto Glastonbury’s Other Stage wearing a T-shirt emblazoned with the older Gallagher brother’s face.

Lewis, who?

Lewis Capaldi was born in Glasgow and brought up in Whitburn, West Lothian. He released his debut EP in 2017 and soon rose to the top of the charts with heartbreak ballad, Someone You Loved.

The 22-year-old learned to play the guitar when he was nine-years-old and has been touring pubs since he was 12.

The floppy-haired Scot is related to Doctor Who star Peter Capaldi who starred in the heart-string-tugging video for his number one hit.

The younger Capaldi is known for his irreverent sense of humor as well as his music. He regularly pokes good-humoured fun at himself and others on social media and has won lots of fans for not taking himself too seriously.

He declared himself the ‘Scottish Beyonce’ ahead of the launch of his debut album, Divinely Inspired to a Hellish Extent, and he stars in his own television adverts where he says: “If you like chubby guys singing sad songs, you’re in for an absolute treat.”

So what’s the beef with Noel Gallagher?

In June, Gallagher gave an interview to Radio X, a UK radio station, where he called Capaldi’s music “f*****g w***k”, before singling out the Scottish singer saying “Who’s this Capaldi fella? Who the f*** is that idiot?”

Rather than weep into his cornflakes, Capaldi took the abuse in good spirits, striding onto the stage at Glastonbury wearing a bucket hat and khaki parks in a nod to Oasis, before revealing his T-shirt that bore Gallagher’s face inside a heart.

The crowd went wild and after his set Capaldi told Jo Whiley on Radio 2: “Noel brought me up in an interview the other day and said he wasn’t the biggest fan of the music.

“I’m a huge fan of his so I thought the only way to do my first ever Glastonbury, would be to pay homage to a man who I love so dearly.

“He’s almost like a spiritual father if you will, so I had the parka, the bucket hat, the whole thing. I hope he sees it, I love him to bits.”

Capaldi was later photographed with Noel’s brother and arch rival Liam at the music festival, stirring the spat up further.

Why doesn’t Noel pick on someone his own size?

No stranger to a feud, it could be said that the High Flying Birds singer doesn’t know when to leave well alone.

In an interview with Variety magazine, h said Scotland - the country his wife Sara hails from - “is like a third world country”.

He also compared Capaldi to the Star Wars character Chewbacca and told him to “enjoy his 15 minutes” of fame.

Capaldi promptly posted a photoshopped picture of his face onto the Wookiee’s body and changed his Twitter handle to Chewis Capaldi.

Gallagher said: “The greatest day of his life that I slagged him off or called him an idiot.

“It’s the greatest day of his f****** life so far. He’s just thinking ‘wow’.

“Well, I know you’re Scottish and all that but f****** hell. It is like a third world country but for f***’s sake, man, you must have had a better day than this. Surely.”

Gallagher’s daughter Anais weighed in, writing on social media: “I want to be Lewis Capaldi when I grow up.”

What happened next?

Liam Gallagher weighed on to defend Capaldi by revealing he “f*****g adores Scotland” on social media in a post that was shared widely.

Scotland’s self-declared national fizzy drink, Irn Bru then announced that it had “cancelled” Noel after his comments about Scotland. Posting on their official social media page, Irn-Bru wrote: “Noel Gallagher is cancelled”.

Irn Bru’s post racked up more than 6,300 likes and over 1,100 shares.

And Noel wasn’t impressed with his teenage daughter’s input either, telling Variety magazine: “Well, she better be better looking than that ****.

“I’m not going to allow that.”

But Lewis Capaldi doesn’t seem in the least bit bothered by the arguments - he’s too busy celebrating his album becoming the best-seller of 2019.

Who’s going to win?

C’mon, everyone knows Scots do it better.
