Lewis Capaldi hilariously reveals he ‘s**t himself’ as Red Arrows swoop down on Glastonbury

Lewis Capaldi reveals he ‘s**t himself’ when Red Arrow jets began flying past during his Glastonbury set.

The 26 year old, who was recently diagnosed with Tourette's, took the stage singing in front of thousands when he was stunned by the Royal Air Force planes that flew past mid-performance.

The singer hilariously revealed to the crowd that he had a moment of sheer panic.

He said: “Oh by the way did anyone see those 'f**king jets flying over. Is that normal? Does that happen a lot?'

The crowd replied 'no!' before Lewis added: “No? Well, maybe they thought 'do you know what that Lewis Capaldi set needs? Send in the f**king red arrows!”

He continued: “I'm not gonna lie I did s**t myself for a minute - I thought we're all f**ked!”

Ah, god, this man must be protected at all costs.

The Scot previously disclosed that he had cancelled all his work commitments earlier this month leading up to the epic festival, revealing that he had been ‘struggling’ with his gruelling schedule and mental health.

“I’m really sorry to say that I’m going to have to cancel all commitments from now until I play Glastonbury,” he wrote on Instagram at the time.

However, as he took the pyramid stage towards the end of the singer’s set, he admitted to dealing with some vocal issues.

Capaldi said before the crowd: “We’re gonna play two more songs if that’s okay, even if I can’t sing properly. I’m really sorry before I go any further. You’ve all come out and I’m really apologising. My voice is packing in.”

The singer also said that he would take more time off after his performance.

“I’m really sorry. I hope the Eavises will have me back on, even though it’s been a bit of a s**t show. I feel like I’ll be taking another wee break for the next few weeks, you might not see me for the rest of the year. But when I do come back and I do see you I hope you’re up for watching,” he said.

After he closed out with his Grammy-nominated song ‘Someone You Loved’, he told the audience, ‘I love you all’ and was seemingly overcome with emotion as his adoring fans chanted back the lyrics to him when he struggled to sing some of the notes.
