Lewis Capaldi and Roman Kemp enjoyed some backstage shenanigans at Capital’s star-studded Jingle Bell Ball with Barclaycard at The O2 on Saturday.
In a hilarious segment, singer Lewis, 26, gave host Roman, 29, a massage as he took some time out ahead of hitting the stage at the festive event.
The Someone You Loved singer joked as he got to work massaging Roman: ‘Christmas has come early for me!’
‘Christmas has come early for me!’ Lewis Capaldi hilariously gave Roman Kemp a massage backstage at Capital’s Jingle Bell Ball ahead of performing at the star-studded event
Roman first introduced the segment, telling fans: ‘I’m currently face down, on a massage table backstage… getting rubbed down by not my usual masseuse.’
He was then left in hysterics as Lewis showed off his sense of humour as they chatted and he even jokingly passed wind while massaging him.
‘That was me sorry, been holding that in for a while,’ Lewis quipped as Roman erupted into laughter.

Roman then asked Lewis about his singing career, asking him: ‘Do you look after your voice?’, ahead of the Grace hitmaker’s performance.
‘Nope. Before every gig, I get a massage like this,’ Lewis said.
He was then asked if he had any ‘pre-show rituals,’ before he said that he warms up with a vocal coach before hitting the stage.
Lewis also spoke about the upcoming Christmas holidays and said the best gift he has ever received was an air fryer.

Hitting the stage with their biggest hits on Saturday is Coldplay, Lewis, Sam Smith, Tom Grennan, KSI, Mimi Webb, Sigala, Nathan Dawe and MistaJam & Friends ft LF System, Eliza Rose and Belters Only.
On Sunday night, Stormzy, Dua Lipa, Aitch, Becky Hill, Tiësto, George Ezra, Joel Corry, MistaJam & Friends ft LF System, Eliza Rose and Belters Only will perform for the festive concert-goers.
Capital listeners missed out on a Coldplay performance last year after they were forced to withdraw from last year’s Jingle Bell Ball after one of their team tested positive for Covid-19.
Tom Grennan was drafted in at the last minute to replace the multi-award-winning global superstars last year.
Lewis will make his highly anticipated debut at a Capital Ball after a strataspheric rise to fame over the past year, with over 25 billion global streams.
Speaking to Capital Breakfast’s Roman Kemp, Sian Welby, Chris Stark and Sonny Jay about playing the Ball, Stormzy said ahead of his performance on Sunday: ‘I’m really excited.
‘It’s gonna be a great show. The energy is second to none, everyone who comes, they come raring!’
Hosting the big nights in London, Capital Breakfast’s Roman Kemp said of the line-up: ‘The excitement levels here at Capital HQ are already through the roof. It’s beginning to look a lot like the best Christmas party, ever…’
