Ed Sheeran has offered to buy Lewis Capaldi’s £1.6m Glasgow mansion, after the Scots singer deemed it a “hell hole” earlier this year.

The West Lothian musician bought the property two years ago, on the advice of fellow chart sensation Sheeran.

However, he revealed earlier this month that he had been forced to move into a flat in Glasgow while the property was gutted, after it turned out to be a “hell hole” that smells like “dog and cigarettes”.

The Someone You Loved singer also revealed he had found a bag of frogs in the house.

Sheeran, 31, has now offered to take the mansion off of his hands, adding that Capaldi only had himself to blame because he viewed the house before buying it.

Speaking on Elvis Duran and the Morning Show, he said: “He didn’t just ring them up and say ‘I’ll take it’. He went to view it.

“I said to him ‘You need to start thinking of what your forever home is going to be, find something you can do up and make into your forever home’.

“I imagine it’s not great. He said he found a shopping bag of live frogs in it.”

He continued: “Honestly, if it does make him feel better then I will buy the house off him.

“If he wants me to buy it, then why not?”

Capaldi, 26, has been hitting the headlines of late after announcing new songs and other projects following a three-year hiatus.

The Grammy-award nominated musician announced his first single since 2019 on September 2, days after he revealed he had been diagnosed with Tourette’s.

Following ‘Forget Me’ and its global success, the Scottish powerhouse announced a new album and live tour on Tuesday, October 18.

‘Broken By Desire to be Heavenly Sent’ is set to be released on May 19, 2023, following a 31-date UK and European trek, which will see him perform at Aberdeen’s P&J Live on January 23 and Glasgow’s Hydro the following night.
