Thankfully she took it well

Lewis Capaldi has apologised to Lorraine after offering her “seven inches” of him on her show.

The Scottish singer made the unexpected comment while appearing on Lorraine on Tuesday morning. The 25-year-old was presenting the 62-year-old TV host with a gift when his crude joke popped out.

“I’ve got you a gift, it’s seven inches of me,” he said, handing Lorraine a vinyl copy of his new ‘Forget Me’.

“There you go, my seven inch… record. Sorry,” he added.

Luckily, Lorraine took the joke pretty well. So well, in fact, that she pretty much completely ignored it.

“Do you know what, I love vinyl,” she said.

“Yeah that’s actually a Bastille record that’s inside it so please don’t open it,” Capaldi responded, “That’s a mistake on our part.”

Of course, knowing the singer’s sick sense of humour, Capaldi’s fans were loving it.

“I absolutely love Lewis Capaldi,” one wrote on Twitter, “He has the best sense of humour”.

It was less than a week ago that the Glaswegian star revealed he has Tourette’s syndrome.

Opening up about his condition on Instagram Live, he said the diagnosis had come as a relief, as he thought he had “some horrible degenerative disease”.

Capaldi assured fans it was “not a big deal” but that some days are “more painful than others”.

“It looks a lot worse than it is,” he added.

Capaldi has been given botox injections to stop twitching in his shoulder, but chose to open up about his diagnosis as he “didn’t want people to think I was taking cocaine or something”.

“The worst thing about it is when I’m excited, I get it,” he said, “When I’m stressed, I get it.”

“When they told me ‘we think you’ve got Tourette’s’, I was like ‘you know what, that makes so much sense,'” he added.
