LEWIS Capaldi has overtaken Ed Sheeran with Britain’s most-streamed song of all time – and he joked: “Nice Guys Finish End.”
The 26-year-old Scot’s “Someone You Loved” topped Ed’s “Shape Of You” in a list compiled to mark the 70th anniversary of the official singles chart.

He said Sheeran, 31 – who co-wrote with him – was “like a brother. . . a mentor”.
