LEWIS Capaldi left two BBC Breakfast presenters red-faced on Saturday in what he called a “classic breakdown of communication”.

The Scottish singer, whose second album is due for release this year, was on the morning programme discussing his new music.

At the end of the interview he misheard Naga Munchetty as the pair discussed Charlie Stayt’s haircut – leading to a hilariously uncomfortable mix-up.

“You’ve got great hair,” he told Stayt. “We were talking about it outside.”

As Stayt returned the compliment, the pair high-fived. Missing out on the bonding, Munchetty asked if the men would “like a room”.

Capaldi looked shocked and asked her to repeat the question – before telling her: “I thought you said a rim, jeez.”

A stunned Munchetty quickly moved on to introduce the next story and advised viewers that she’d be “having a little word with Lewis”.

Capaldi apologised for the X-rated confusion and the morning show continued uninterrupted.

Earlier this month, Capaldi released his new single Forget Me. 

But speaking to Lorraine, the singer joked about releasing his first new music in three years the day after the Queen’s death.

“Not a great week to release a single … Let me tell you that," he said.

Reflecting on her passing, he added: “It is a sad thing. And then you see the family all sad and it just reminds you as well that people in your own family have gone.”

The singer’s 2019 debut album Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent went on to become the biggest album of the year, according to the Official Charts Company.
