Lewis Capaldi has jokingly referred to his ongoing public spat with Noel Gallagher as "a lovers' tiff".

The feud kicked off earlier in the year when a video of the Oasis star asking who Capaldi is went viral.

Gallagher went on to call the 22-year-old Scottish singer-songwriter "Chewbacca" and label Scotland a "third world country" while Capaldi clapped back by trolling Gallagher during his Glastonbury set.

Capaldi has now said Gallagher is a "lovely man" after meeting him recently.

He told the radio show Capital Breakfast with Roman Kemp: "I wouldn't call it a feud, I'd call it a lovers' tiff."

Referring to his appearance at Glastonbury Festival, where he appeared on stage wearing a bucket hat and oversized green parka a la Oasis, Capaldi said: "I don't know who wants to see beef between me and Noel Gallagher but, yeah, he said some unfavourable things, did Noel, and I responded by getting my hair cut like his brother and dressing up like his brother and wearing a shirt with his face on it with a love heart on it.

"It was a whole thing, I tell you something, the beef was raw, it was some raw beef."

The Someone You Loved hitmaker added that he is "so pleased" to be involved with the spat.

"Growing up, part of loving Oasis, part of growing up and being an Oasis fan was loving all the slams that he used to dish out," he said.

"So I used to grow up and watch these compilation videos of Noel Gallagher slagging off artists, and now I can be part of one of those compilation videos."

On meeting Gallagher, Capaldi said they had a "big hug" and that he was "into it".

"This is the thing, right - he bloody ... he loves me," Capaldi claimed.

"I'm trying to work out if I can send him a plaque for the album. It would be tremendous.

"But no, he's a lovely man, there was no animosity. I mean, I've got new T-shirt ideas for Chewis Capaldi for him calling me Chewbacca. This is totally fine, do you know what I mean?"
