Lewis Capaldi has won his third UK number one single with his comeback track Forget Me.
The 25-year-old singer flew up the UK Singles Chart on Friday, with the star previously topping the top spot with his 2019 hit Someone You Loved and 2020 hit Before You Go.
Pop star Lewis, who was recently diagnosed with Tourette Syndrome, said: “I can’t thank everyone enough for doing this to me and getting it to this point even though I did most of the work myself!
Success story: Lewis Capaldi, 25, has secured his third number one single in the UK with the comeback track “Forget Me”.
“This letter goes to all of you, the people who love me and especially my enemies.
‘May you all perish in flames and know nothing but eternal suffering.’
It comes after Lewis went public with his diagnosis of Tourette’s syndrome this month and said he doesn’t want fans to think he’s “did cocaine or anything”.
Born to perform: The singer soared up the UK Singles Chart on Friday, with the star previously topping the top spot with his 2019 hit ‘Someone You Loved’ and 2020’s ‘Before You Go’
The hitmaker explained: I’ve been diagnosed with Tourette’s.
“I wanted to talk about it because I didn’t want people to think I was on cocaine or anything.”
Lewis is learning to live with the symptoms of the condition and the chart-topper has even had botox injections to control his tics.
He told The Sun newspaper’s Bizarre column: “My shoulder twitches when I’m excited, happy, nervous or stressed. It’s something I live with. It’s not as bad as it looks.”
Lewis also addressed the issue with his fans during an Instagram Live session.
The award-winning star shared: “It’s a new thing. I didn’t really learn much about it.
“I got botox in my shoulder to keep it from moving, but I’m constantly learning new ways to deal with it.
“Some days it’s more painful than others, sometimes it’s quite uncomfortable, but I think that’s about it.”
Speaking of which, it comes after Lewis went public with his diagnosis of Tourette’s syndrome this month and said he doesn’t want fans to think he’s “did cocaine or anything”.
Lewis has been concerned about his health in recent years and admits the diagnosis “makes so much sense” now.
The star – who released his debut album Divinely Uninspired at a
Hellish Extent in 2019 – said: “When they said to me, ‘We think you have Tourette’, I said, ‘You know what, that makes so much sense'”.
“Looking back at my 2018 interviews, I see I can do it.”
Before the diagnosis, Lewis feared he had a degenerative disease.
He shared: “It comes and goes. Sometimes I can go months without it.
“I thought I had a terrible degenerative disease, so I’m taking Tourette.”
Lewis Capaldi also recently revealed that he suffers from panic attacks so severe that his mother has had to sleep with him in his bed.
The award-winning singer said a month ago his mother Carol had to comfort him in bed.
The Scot opened up about his crippling anxiety in a candid interview about his mental health.
He opened up about having panic attacks at the 2020 Grammy Awards and canceling a trip to the US because he thought he had a brain tumor.
Speaking to Steven Bartlett on a CEO Podcast Diary, Capaldi said his parent is his calming influence and helps his hypochondria and anxiety.
Lewis said: “There is no one who can talk me out of this like my mother.
“My mom only had to sleep in my bed a month ago because my anxiety got so bad once.”
He added: “Sometimes things don’t feel real. People will say something to me and I won’t understand what they say. It’s going to be really intense.’
Symptoms: “My shoulder twitches when I’m excited, happy, nervous, or stressed. It’s something I live with. It’s not as bad as it looks,” he said of the syndrome
The singer said he thought he had a brain tumor and was very worried about it, even canceling a trip and once going to the hospital.
“A few years ago it got so bad that I paid for an MRI scan.
“I canceled my trip because I was so scared. I thought there was something seriously wrong with me. I thought I couldn’t get on a plane to Austin. I have to go for an MRI scan.
“I went and got it, but I was fine. It was all in my head.
“It gets to a point where I can’t imagine it’s not something life-threatening or super serious.”
Speaking about his hypochondria, he said that most of the time he knows it’s just his fear, but there’s a voice in his head that says, ‘What if it’s not? What if something is wrong with you?’
But the star said it’s “definitely getting better”.
WHAT IS TOURETTE SYNDROME?
Tourette syndrome is a neurological disorder characterized by a combination of involuntary sounds and movements called tics.
It usually begins in childhood and continues into adulthood. Tics can be either vocal or physical.
In many cases, Tourette syndrome runs in families and is often associated with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) or attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
Tourette syndrome is named after the French physician Georges Gilles de la Tourette, who first described the syndrome and its symptoms in the 19th century.
There is no cure for Tourette syndrome, but treatment can help control symptoms.
