Lewis Capaldi has said he was kicked off Tinder and has ended up on another dating app that's "all about kinks and BDSM".

The 'Before You Go' singer said he was also booted off other dating apps because people assume he is just a member of the public pretending to be him.

Opening up on the Diary Of A CEO podcast, he said: "I’ve just been kicked off Tinder because I people think I’m fake.

Capaldi, 25, said that after he was kicked off the apps someone suggested that he try another one called Feeld.

Feeld describes itself as "a dating app for exploration, curiosity and pleasure", and on its website it says that people can "join solo or with a partner to find lovers and friends".

However, Capaldi admitted that it's "way beyond" what he is used to.

"It is so sexual, it’s unbelievable," said the 'Leaving My Love Behind' singer.

"It's all about like, kinks and BDSM and I'm like, this is way beyond anything I'm tuned in for."

The Scottish singer also recently opened up about having been diagnosed with Tourette's syndrome.

He explained to his fans in an Instagram Live video: "I have Tourette's, I have always had it, apparently."

According to the NHS, Tourette's syndrome "is a condition that causes a person to make involuntary sounds and movements called tics".

He added: "And you see underneath every TikTok and stuff, people are like, 'Why is he twitching?', which is fine. Curiosity is fine."
