On New Year’s Eve (December 31), Capaldi performed as part of the BBC’s Hogmanay celebrations alongside host Edith Bowman.

After the performance, one fan took to TikTok and told Capaldi: “Lewis, my dad saw you on TV and thought you were Susan Boyle.”

In response, Capaldi shared a video of himself shaking his head and joking that the comparison was a “great start to the new year”.

“I dreamed a dream that ppl stopped telling me i looked like women in their 60s,” he added.

Elsewhere, Capaldi recently revealed that ticket sales to his upcoming gig in Germany are “abysmal” compared to other countries.

The Scottish singer-songwriter will release new album ‘Broken By Desire To Be Heavenly Sent’, the follow-up to 2019 debut ‘Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent’, on May 19, 2023.

Prior to the album’s release, Capaldi is set to hit the road on a UK and European arena tour in January, including a show at the 17,000-capacity Mercedes-Benz Arena in Berlin.

Speaking to Ken Bruce on his BBC Radio 2 show, Capaldi said the tour is “selling well” except for the German date. The singer added: “People in Germany are really not vibing with my music, I have to say at the minute. Ticket sales are abysmal. That’s a word that I don’t get to use often.

“The show in Berlin is 17,000 people, that’s what the arena can hold,” he added. “And I have sold 1,373 tickets. Come on Germany. Get off your backsides and do something!”
