West Lothian singer Lewis Capaldi became one of the first musical guests on America’s The Late Late Show with James Corden as they begin recording from a distance.

On Wednesday, the Someone You Loved charttopper appeared on the show, currently named The Late Late Show with James Corden – from his garage, to speak about life back at home with his family during lockdown and to perform his latest single ‘Before You Go’.

Capaldi’s slot on the show saw him tell Corden he had been at home with his parents and brother throughout the whole self isolation period.

Speaking about life at home he joked: “Now that I’ve been back quite some time, three weeks, and when you can’t really leave your house it doesn’t take that long to realise that you despise the people who raised you and the brother that you’ve shared a room with for most of your life. It’s a lot of friction, and I love them, my mother raised me, but she has become almost dependent on memes.

“It’s a constant barrage of memes in my direction, it’s just bugging my entire existence at this point because she’s annoying.”

However, he did go on to praise his parents who are both essential workers as his mother is a nurse with the NHS and father is a fishmonger.

During his time on the show, Capaldi was also the music guest of the night and performed his latest single ‘Before You Go’ which topped the charts after being released on 31 January this year.
