Lewis Capaldi

He’s beat out some stiff competition

Lewis Capaldi has topped a poll of the most attractive male musicians in the UK, beating the likes of Harry Styles to the coveted top spot.

The accolade comes according to Google search data over the past year, using searches such as ‘hot’ and ‘calendar’ alongside the musicians’ names to determine who the nation has the hots for.

The research, conducted by Spin Genie UK, revealed that Capaldi’s name was searched a total of 614,030 times.

It seems we Brits have a thing for gingers, as Ed Sheeran came in a respectable second with more than 391,000 searches in the past twelve months.

Rounding out the podium in the top three was Harry Styles, with a respectable 288,930 searches.

Earlier this year, Capaldi made headlines for his Glastonbury performance, in which he fought through his set with voice difficulties.

In a beautiful moment, the Glastonbury crowd stepped in to help carry Capaldi through the performance, creating one of the more beautiful videos to come out of the music festival in recent years.

After the performance, it was confirmed Lewis Capaldi would take time off from touring and performing due to the toll on his physical and mental health.

Before his final song, Lewis told the crowd: “I recently took three weeks off just because I’ve been non-stop the past year and I wanted to take a wee break from my head for my mental health.

“I wanted to come back and do Glastonbury because it’s obviously so incredible, so I just want to thank you all for coming out.

“I was scared but you’ve really made me feel at ease so thank you very much for that.”

Lewis added: “I feel like I’ll be taking another wee break over the next couple of weeks so you probably won’t see much of me for the rest of the year maybe even.

“But when I do come back, when I do see you, I hope you’re all still up for watching.”
