The Scottish singer, 22, recently dined with the pop legend, 72, describing it as the “best afternoon of his life.”

Posting an image of the duo on Instagram, Capaldi said: “My life is f****** mental. Thank you for the free food @eltonjohn.”

John showed his support for Capaldi, writing: “Spending the day with the next British superstar.”

Celebrities flocked to show their appreciation for the duo’s lunch date, including Love Island host Caroline Flack, 39, who posted several heart and clapping emojis in response.

Busted member James Bourne, 35, found Capaldi’s caption amusing, and wrote: “The free food, I can’t breathe” with several laughing emojis.
