LEWIS Capaldi has revealed that his hit song Someone You Loved was inspired by his dead gran – not Love Island’s Paige Turley.  The Scots singer joked online that the sad news of his grandmother’s passing actually proved to be fortunate as it led to his smash hit song.  And it comes after pals had claimed that the star had been inspired by the reality babe he used to date.  Speaking to an Australian music channel, Lewis said that he’d gone in to the studio not long after his gran’s passing.  He 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.  “She died a few years ago. Your classic death, not coming back that sort of thing. Moment Lewis Capaldi’s ex Paige Turley wowed judges with incredible Britain’s Got Talent audition aged 14  “One day I sat down at my piano, after the death, and I started messing around”.  Lewis revealed that he had been struggling to get the song just right.  And that he had hoped to put the track on his second album.  But he joked that he didn’t hang around, otherwise he would have “flopped hard”.  He said: “I went into a session and I was like ‘I can’t write another heartbreak ballad’  “And as fortune had it my gran had just died.  “They said ‘have you lost anybody?’  “I says ‘just the ticket. My gran’s dead'”  We told you in November how pals claimed Lewis channelled the heartache from his love split with Paige to become a global singing superstar.  Friends said the chart-topping star fancied the stunning music student “like mad” and quickly fell for her at college in Motherwell around five years ago.  And it was claimed he was “gutted” when they broke up — and was inspired to pen his smash debut album Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent, which includes current US No1 single Someone You Loved.  Capaldi previously claimed Someone You Loved has a double meaning relating to both grief and lost love.  We pay for your stories and videos!
