Lewis said, "The song is not about a lady who I was in a romantic relationship. It's about my grandmother, who's dead, f**k."

Attempting to keep the conversation on the lighter note, Lewis continued, "She died a few years ago. Your classic death, not coming back that sort of thing."

The single which was nominated at the GRAMMYs for 'Song of the Year' had humble beginnings; "One day I sat down at my piano, after the death, and I started messing around", Lewis added.

"And as fortune had it my gran had just died - I went into a session and I was like 'I can't write another heartbreak ballad'.

When Love Island contestant Paige revealed that she'd been in a relationship with Lewis, many believed the song could have been about her. The singer confirmed the pair had dated however he hadn't been given a heads up that she'd be starring on the show; "She never told me she was going on it, that would have been a nice heads up, but fair play, good luck to her".

The Scottish singer, who's nominated at the Global Awards for Best Male, was recently name-checked by his pal Niall Horan who confirmed the pair have recorded a song together.
