Having achieved his fifth UK number 1 single, Lewis shouted: “**** Ed! Take that, Ed.”

“How many has he [Ed] got?”

“18,” replied someone off-screen, to which Lewis responded with a frustrated cry.

“Yeah he’s breaking records. He took a whole box of these [trophies] home when he was last here,” said the show’s host Will Manning.

“Well he takes too much,” Lewis responded.

“He does. Greedy,” Will said.

“And what does he ever bring?” Lewis added.

Lewis posted the video clip to his TikTok with the caption: “I’ll never be him 😔.”

Fans found the interview hilarious and were quick to praise Lewis for sharing his honest thoughts.

One commented: “Lewis Capaldi is just one gigantic intrusive thought.”

Another said: “This man is a national treasure.”

Lewis and Ed are well-known for their friendship, especially after Ed sent Lewis the details of a house, which Lewis bought. It wasn’t until later that Lewis realised the extent of the renovations that the house needed and jokingly blamed Ed for the purchase.

Ed has yet to comment on the “roast,” but has always supported his friend’s success.

‘Wish You The Best’ is the fourth single to be released from Lewis’ sophomore album ‘Broken By Desire To Be Heavenly Sent,’ which will be released on 19 May.
