Lewis Capaldi can't find any builders for 'hell hole' £1.6m home Ed Sheeran helped buy

Posted: Tuesday, April 11th, 2023

Lewis Capaldi has revealed he can't find a builder to renovate his £1.6 million farmhouse that pal Ed Sheeran helped to find, the Mirror has reported.

The singer, 26, snapped up the property on the outskirts of Glasgow three years ago with the help of Ed but has still not managed to convince any workers to help him with the project.

The Someone You Loved star called his new pad a "hell hole" after discovering it smelled of cigarette smoke and dog.

Lewis also hated the décor, so ditched his new purchase for a flat in the Scottish city instead and admitted the rural home is now a "shell".

"Let's put it this way, if this album doesn't go well I have a real issue on my hands," he told US Radio.

"That house is now a shell. I have ripped it all out and right now it's squalor. We keep on finding builders and they keep on being like 'nah, not for us'.

"People are turning me down. I'm offering to pay the money and they're like 'No, not for us, that's not the one'.

"So Ed has still burdened my life to an incredible degree."

Ed recently joked he would buy the troubled house off Lewis, but the singer says he hasn't heard from the Shape of You star.

"I saw Ed saying he is going to buy it off me. I've been chasing that man on email and nothing. I haven't seen him since," he added.

Last month, Lewis experienced a full-circle moment when his musical idol Ed performed one of his songs at his sold-out show.

Hitmaker Ed, 32, paid tribute to the Scottish singer after he hilariously urged fans to buy Ed’s album and not his own on his This Morning appearance.

As a thank you, Ed took to the stage at the 02 Arena in London and played Lewis’ hit Someone You Loved to a 20,000-strong crowd.
