Lewis Capaldi’s emotional songs about his love life often have fans questioning who they’re written about.
Lewis Capaldi is known for his hit songs including ‘Before You Go’, ‘Bruises’, ‘Hold Me While You Wait’, and ‘Someone You Loved’, which are all heartfelt tracks about his love life and personal heartache.
He is now reportedly dating student Catherine Halliday after they were pictured leaving a date at their local Prezzo.
Here’s what we know about the Scottish 23-year-old’s relationship history…
Who is Lewis Capaldi dating?
It’s thought the Scottish pop star is currently dating a student named Catherine Halliday, after they were seen having a meal at the star's local Prezzo near to his hometown of West Lothian.
The couple were seen walking hand in hand and were apparently in fits of laughter as they drove off in his Ford Fiesta, as he narrowly avoided knocking the car.
It's the first time Lewis has been seen with a love interest in public, after poking fun at his single status for months – he even joined dating app Raya in November last year.
He joked about his single status after receiving a BRIT Award nomination in 2018, telling fans on Twitter: “One for the Tinder bio. Been nominated for a BRITs AWARD.
"Let's hope this dramatically improves my tinder match ratio, something needs to change."
Who is Catherine Halliday?
So far there's little known about Lewis' new romantic interest, apart from the fact her name is Catherine Halliday and she's a 21-year-old student.
Lewis has always joked about using dating apps, so it wouldn't be a surprise if they met over the likes of Tinder and Hinge.
Who is Lewis Capaldi’s ex-girlfriend Paige Turley?
Lewis’ ex girlfriends include Love Island 2020 star Paige Turley, who he dated for two years until 2016.
The former couple met at college in Motherwell and quickly became close, but when they split the budding pop star was left heartbroken.
He went on to write his album ‘Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent’, channeling his heartbreak into music.
Speaking about the heartache, Lewis said: “I met a lady. She was very nice. I loved her. I loved the look of her and I loved how she spoke.
“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.”
Paige won Love Island's winter 2020 series with Finn Tapp, but it wasn't her first brush with fame after she auditioned for Britain's Got Talent in 2012 and went through to the semi-finals.
Are any of Lewis Capaldi’s songs about his exes?
Lewis’ award-winning single ‘Someone You Loved’ was strongly believed to be about ex Paige, but he recently revealed ‘Hold Me While You Wait’ was the track he penned about the Love Island star.
At a gig in London over the Valentine’s weekend, Lewis introduced ‘Hold Me While You Wait’ by saying the song is about a relationship “you think is going well and the lady has different ideas.”
He went on: "She thinks it’s going horribly. Then she leaves, and you're quite sad about it, and you write an album about it.
"And then she ends up going on Love Island," he added.
Proving there was no hard feelings toward his reality TV star ex, Lewis said he hoped Paige would win the show, adding: “For the record, I hope my ex-girlfriend wins Love Island. Not bitter" – and she did!
