Pictures of the antics were posted on the club's Instagram account last night, which led to dozens of youngsters flocking to the venue to try to get in.

Edinburgh-based DJ Prospect mixed some tunes along with DJ G2 for about 200 revellers.

One of those lucky enough to attend last night's after party told the Evening News that Capaldi was "literally the last man standing," adding: "It was a celebration party because he had not had a chance to link up with everyone since having the number one.

"He was just mad cool. Everyone knows he is totally chilled but he was the last man standing with his family at the end. He was literally the last punter leaving."

Lewis also bought drinks for everyone and ordered in pizzas from Edinburgh's Civerinos restaurant, while there was also some beer pong on the go - or 'Capaldi pong' as it was billed.

As well as his family, comedian Daniel Sloss was also at the party and shared a video of himself attempting to down a bottle of Buckfast.

BBC Radio presenter Nihal Arthanayake also attended and tweeted that he "tried Buckfast for the first time".

The club also said that Lewis was a great guest and is welcome back any time.

The partying began after Capaldi finished the second of his sold-out gigs at Edinburgh Summer Sessions where he also provided fans with plenty of banter and laughter.

On Tuesday, he admitted on stage that he had been drinking so much water that he had accidentally wet himself.

“If there’s anyone out there from the papers, please don’t mention that." he said.

And he also apologised to his 'number one' beer brand Tennent's after being pictured with a can of Carlsberg at the concert.

In a tweet to the brand, the Someone You Loved singer said: “They didn’t have any backstage, you’ll always be my number one.”

The partying went on for hours. Picture: Contributed
