LEWIS Capaldi sends his dad to do the shopping because he’s scared of social distancing and getting mobbed by fans.
The singer, 23, opened up about feeling anxious of his fans rushing up to him at the shops and not keeping the mandated two metres away to help prevent the spread of coronavirus.
He told The Sun: “I always worry about going to a shop and someone being like, ‘Oh, can we get a picture?’ And I’m like, ‘You have to stay two metres apart!’
“I don’t want to be that guy, so my dad has been getting (the shopping). I have literally become a hermit.” Lewis has made the best use of his time holed up, though, and already has 11 new songs for a follow-up to his chart-topping debut album Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent.
Lewis added: “Next year there will be an album for sure.”
He is still eager to team up with best bud Niall Horan but the result might not be musical in nature.
Lewis quipped: “Me and Niall are going to do a line of sandals.”
Even though he joked, Niall recently let slip that he will go into the studio with the Someone You Loved singer this week – virtually.
He revealed that the pair have been enjoying Saturday nights boozing together via video calling app Zoom and plan to use it to write music in the coming days.
In an Instagram Live in the early hours of yesterday, the former One Direction singer said: “I didn’t see him this weekend.
“We usually have a few drinks on a Saturday night on Zoom but we didn’t chat this weekend.
“I think I’m writing with him at some point this week. We have a little schedule going.”
The news is sure to excite thousands of fans who were devastated when the pandemic forced Niall to cancel his Nice To Meet Ya tour, for which Lewis was going to be his support act.
It won’t be the first time they have teamed up, as they wrote a track last year, although it is yet to be released.

Lewis said in October: “We did do a song together. I love it. I don’t know if it will come out, I hope it will. I really, really need the money.”
He might not need the money now considering his debut album was the biggest seller of 2019.
