Watch Lewis Capaldi's hilarious Noel Gallagher entrance at Glastonbury

Lewis Capaldi is having a great Glastonbury. Not only has he played a secret set on the BBC Introducing stage, been on stage with Bastille, but now for his debut Other Stage performance he walked out on-stage dressed an Noel Gallagher... naturally.

Capaldi is known for a grand entrance, after his walk-on routine at Radio 1’s Big Weekend went viral, but this one was slightly more personal.

Earlier this month during an interview on Radio X, Noel Gallagher branded music as "f****** w*** at the moment" before singling out the Scottish singer saying "Who's this Capaldi fella? Who the f*** is that idiot?".

Capaldi, who dubbed Gallagher his "spiritual father", decided to address Gallagher's comments in the best way possible, and emerged on stage complete with a bucket hat and signature Oasis parka, which he took off to reveal a t-shirt with Noel’s face in a love heart.

Speaking to Jo Whiley on Radio 2 after his performance, Capaldi said: "Noel brought me up in an interview the other day and said he wasn’t the biggest fan of the music."

"I’m a huge fan of his so I thought the only way to do my first ever Glastonbury, would be to pay homage to a man who I love so dearly. He's almost like a spiritual father if you will, so I had the parka, the bucket hat, the whole thing. I hope he sees it, I love him to bits."

Now we wait for Noel's response.
