Lewis Capaldi stepped away from performing after an emotional show on the Pyramid Stage at this summer's Glastonbury, and has been making the most of his time off.

The 26-year-old Glaswegian was spotted on Thursday night at a Wild Youth gig at London's Electric Ballroom dancing and singing with none other than This Morning 's Rylan Clark.

The popular Essex-born presenter has also been enjoying some time away from the spotlight, and last night enjoyed a happy singalong to the Irish band's We Are One hit track with Lewis.

Rylan later posted an adorable picture of the two hugging after the packed gig and fans could not get enough.

The unlikely friends were clearly having a blast at the gig, and Rylan is one of many of Lewis's pals gathering around to support him.

Singer Lewis opened up to fans at his Glastonbury about some of his health struggles following his diagnosis of Tourette's Syndrome. He cancelled gigs in the build-up to the Festival but visibly struggled with his tics on stage, prompting his adoring fans to chant his name in support.

Prior to the gig, Lewis told fans “the last few months have been full on both mentally and physically.”

Following his sell-out performance, he confirmed he was stepping down from performing while he focussed on getting healthy.

"Hello everyone," he said on his Instagram page. "First of all, thank to Glastonbury for having me, for singing along when I needed it and for all the amazing messages afterwards. It really does mean the world.

"The fact that this probably won't come as a surprise doesn't make it an easier to write, but I'm very sorry to let you know I'm going to be taking a break from touring for the foreseeable future."

Meanwhile, 34-year-old Rylan has been busy recording his weekly Radio 2 show after taking a well-earned break earlier this summer to soak up the sun and escape the This Morning drama.

Now back on home soil, he's been back on screens in Celebrity Gogglebox with his 71-year-old mum Linda. Before Thursday night's Wild Youth gig he took to his social media to wish her a happy birthday, posting a lovely snap of the pair standing by a rose wall, calling her "the best mum in the world".

As well as friends like Rylan, Lewis also seeking support in the arms of his actress girlfriend Ellie MacDowall, who he's been dating since the end of last year.

A source told the Daily Mail said: "Lewis needs to be around those who love him at the moment and Ellie is supporting and comforting him through this really difficult time.
