Lewis Capaldi has delighted fans by going undercover to serve in a branch of Greggs.

The Scottish singer-songwriter was on Teesside for the BBC Big Weekend gig and surprised festival guests by turning up at one of the popular baker's Middlesbrough outlets.

The 22-year-old wore the full Greggs uniform, including hairnet, while claiming to be on work experience and served up breakfasts, coffees, sandwiches and bakes.

Once the word spread, fans from the nearby concert venue flocked to meet him.

After taking time to chat to people, he went outside the shop for an impromptu acoustic performance.

One fan tweeted: "I'm far to hungover to be hearing that Lewis capaldi is working in Greggs at Marton eh."

Another said: "Lmaooooo Lewis capaldi in boro town dressed up as a member of staff from Greggs this weekend is just getting better."
