Lewis Capaldi Serves Pasties To Fans At Greggs
Everyone's favourite Scottish pop star Lewis Capaldi gave customers at a Greggs in Middlesbrough a surprise the other day when he got dressed up in disguise and started serving them pasties.
The 22-year-old singer donned a full Greggs uniform, as well as a hairnet and name badge to carry out some unusual 'work experience' at the shop on Stokesley Road, which is near to the park that Lewis is playing at this weekend.
As often happens, word quickly spread that the 'Somebody You Loved' singer, who has also gained a huge amount of fame by being funny on the internet - decent work if you can get it - was selling steak bakes.

This weekend sees Middlesbrough host the Radio 1 Big Weekend festival, at which Capaldi is playing. Ahead of the performance, Lewis dipped out to provide festival attendees with coffee, pies, sausage rolls, and - of course - pasties.
As well as serving up a storm, he also then posed for pictures and autographs with the flock of fans that arrived to see him. They were also treated to an impromptu acoustic performance outside the front of the shop.
Fans were delighted at Capaldi's appearance. One tweeted: "So last night Hannah Montana went for a stroll around Park End and this morning Lewis Capaldi is serving sausage buns at Marton Greggs what is actually going on."
Another added: "Seeing a photo of Lewis Capaldi working in Greggs in Marton shops has made my day."
After he has performed at the Big Weekend in Middlesbrough's Stewart Park, Capaldi will then be heading off on the short journey to Newcastle, where he is playing at This Is Tomorrow alongside The Vaccines, Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, Foals, and Nothing But Thieves.
The size of these gigs shows the scale of Lewis Capaldi's rise in popularity across an incredibly short space of time.
In fact, his debut album 'Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent' was released last week and has shot to the top of the charts.
It sold 89,000 copies in the first week, that's more than the rest of the other top ten albums combined.
The album also became the highest selling album after one week for the whole of 2019. Basically, things are looking up for Lewis Capaldi.
Oh, and if it all comes crumbling down around him, at least we know that he has some solid work experience on his CV to fall back on.
