Plus my previous video was me as a stripper so I thought this one should be a bit more a serious. The video immediately struck a chord, reaching over one million views in the two days. A year on it has been watched a staggering 93 million times. The video started a conversation about organ donation that urgently needs to be had. In the UK, over 6, people are currently are waiting a life-altering transplant, but three people die each day. Capaldi partnered with organ donation charities whose work he had heard about through his mother, a neurological nurse. Just after he was born, Lynskey contracted viral meningitis, which led to the enlargement and weakening of his heart.

Lewis Capaldi has confirmed that his huge song 'Someone You Loved' isn't actually written about an ex girlfriend. In an interview with an Australian music channel, Lewis confirmed that the song is actually about his grandmother, not a former flame. Lewis said, "The song is not about a lady who I was in a romantic relationship. Attempting to keep the conversation on the lighter note, Lewis continued, "She died a few years ago. Your classic death, not coming back that sort of thing. When Love Island contestant Paige revealed that she'd been in a relationship with Lewis, many believed the song could have been about her. The singer confirmed the pair had dated however he hadn't been given a heads up that she'd be starring on the show; "She never told me she was going on it, that would have been a nice heads up, but fair play, good luck to her".

Phil Beastall, from Tewkesbury, directed this emotional music video to Lewis Capaldi's top 10 track. Phil shot to fame last year, after his Christmas short film 'Love is a Gift' brought millions of viewers across the globe to tears. The year-old has had incredible success in recent weeks, partnering with ITV and Good Morning Britain to write and direct a short film for their '1 Million Minutes' loneliness prevention campaign. The song is Capaldi's highest charting single in the UK, reaching number 1 in the singles charts.
The Scots singer, 22, unveiled the new music video as it was premiered on YouTube for the first time tonight. The hit song already featured a tearjerker of a video starring relative and Doctor Who star Peter Capaldi. It sees Lewis star in the video himself as he plays a heartbroken man in the immediate aftermath of a break-up with his girlfriend — while pals try to stop him from chasing after her. The original video featured Peter Capaldi playing the role of a grieving husband who loses his wife to illness. In the final moments of the video, Peter listens to beating heart of his wife in the body of another after donating her organs. The Live Life Give Life campaign, which is featured at the end of the video, allows recipients of donor organs to say thank you despite not being able to thank their donors in person. Fans have been reacting to the new take on song, with some revealing it pulled on their heartstrings just as much as the original video. I thought the Peter Capaldi video was heart wrenching, this is completely heart breaking. We told earlier how Lewis rounded off a hectic festival schedule this summer by playing two nights at Edinburgh Summer Sessions.
