Lewis Capaldi has launched his own pizza brand.

Revealing the news on his Instagram account, the singer said that he had begun collaborating with supermarket chains Tesco and Iceland.

Capaldi said: “I think lockdown spurred on a lot of ideas for a lot of people. And I turned to sourdough. Sourdough is my solace. The cogs started turning and I thought, pizzas could be my true calling.”

He added: “It took a while it was a lot of trial and error. Eventually that spark just ignited and I stumbled upon greatness. I want to give these pizzas the best chance they can to succeed, I’ll be doing cooking shows, chat shows, you’ll be seeing a lot of the big cheese.”

Capaldi's range is called Big Sexy Pizza and they have so far released two different pizzas.

Lewis Capaldi’s The Big Sexy Meaty One and The Big Sexy Cheesy One are both available now at £5 each from Iceland and Tesco.

Capaldi recently released his first single since 2019 with 'Forget Me'. The song went straight to the top of the UK charts and featured a video that recreated Wham's 'Club Tropicana'.

The Scottish singer initially rose to fame in 2019 with his breakthrough single 'Someone You Loved' which later spent seven weeks at number one on the charts and was the biggest selling song of the year. It also topped the Billboard Hot 100 in America.

In the process, Capaldi became the first Scottish artist to hit number one in America since Sheena Easton in 1981.

His debut album Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent has sold over one million copies since it was released in 2019 and topped the charts in the UK.

It became the fastest selling album of 2019 and the highest selling album of both 2019 and 2020.
