Lewis Capaldi is offering free tickets to his own shows for anyone he matches with on location-based dating app Tinder.

The singer-songwriter has teamed up with the company to offer two people that successfully swipe through to his Tinder profile free tickets to one of his gigs in New York, or at one of his stops on his UK tour.

The Scottish artist’s Tinder profile has appeared at bus stops and billboards across the country since Monday as part of the competition.

Capaldi said: “I’m very excited to have teamed up with the people at Tinder to give two lucky people the chance to fly out to New York to meet your favourite big lovely handsome celebrity (me).

“I’m yet to find love and Tinder Gold is the only lifeline I have left before I’m resigned to a lifetime living at home with my mother.”

To be in with a chance of matching with the singer and winning the prize, members of Tinder can swipe right on his profile.
