The Someone You Loved singer has responded to the Oasis legend's recent interview in which he referred to him as the Star Wars character.
The former Oasis rocker took part in an interview with Variety this week, where he said of the singer-songwriter: "Fucking Chewbacca should enjoy his 15 minutes. The greatest day of his life that I slagged him off or called him an idiot. It’s the greatest day of his fucking life so far. He’s just thinking, 'Wow!' Well, I know you’re Scottish and all that, but fucking hell! It is like a third world country, but for fuck‘s sake, man, you must have had a better day than this. Surely!"
Capaldi has since responded in record time, changing his Twitter photo to an image of the Star Wars character and with his own face photoshopped inside it.
If that wasn't enough banter for one day, the Tough singer has also changed his name to Chewis Capaldi.
Fans seem pretty tickled by the news with some calling him a "wee genius" and others asking for a Noel and Lewis collab.

When Noel Gallagher joked about Capaldi's "15 minutes of fame" he of course was referring to their banter last month, which was sparked by a Radio X interview in which the Holy Mountain singer slagged him off.
fter Capaldi shared a hilarious series of Instagram Stories which saw him react to the namecheck, Gallagher hit back by calling him a "daftie" and sharing his own video of his son mocking the Scot's number one hit.
Some may have called that 2:1 to Noel until the Tough singer introduced his set on the Other Stage at Glastonbury with the clip of Noel's comments.
If that wasn't brave enough, much to the crowd's delight, he appeared wearing a parka and bucket hat, which he whipped off to reveal he was dressed in a t-shirt with Noel's face inside a heart.

The Variety interview also saw Gallagher also address the fact his daughter Anaïs seemed to praise Capaldi and say she wants to be like him when she grows up.
"When she grows up? Well, she better be better looking than that cunt," he quipped. Let’s hope she doesn’t have his looks. Or his girth. I’m not going to allow that. She’s gonna have a bad day soon if she wants to be Lewis Capaldi when she grows up."
