A CHEWBACCA mask worn by singer/songwriter Lewis Capaldi at TRNSMT which is being auctioned off for charity has hit the £5000 mark just 12 hours after going up for auction.

The mask is being auctioned by DF Concerts on eBay for the charity Tiny Changes – which was set up in May in memory of Frightened Rabbit frontman Scott Hutchison, who took his own life last year.

Capaldi wore the mask for his set on the main stage of TRNSMT in front of around 50,000 people in Glasgow Green.

His appearance as the Star Wars character came amid a spat with Noel Gallagher.

The row began when the former Oasis rocker declared he didn't know who Capaldi was during a Radio X interview.

The Someone You Loved singer responded by playing the clip before appearing on stage at Glastonbury.

Gallagher, speaking to Variety, subsequently said: "F****** 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 f****** life so far. He's just thinking 'wow'.

"Well, I know you're Scottish and all that but f****** hell. It is like a third world country but for f***'s sake, man, you must have had a better day than this. Surely."

Gallagher faced heavy criticism in response to the "third world country" remark.

And in retaliation, Capaldi donned the Chewbacca mask for his big festival appearance.

The National:

It is owned by the DF Concerts concert manager, who said: "I had a feeling after all the Noel Gallagher back and forth with Lewis Capaldi, that they may be in need of a Chewbacca mask so I got in touch with Lewis's team and offered my mask. The answer was 'bring it!'.

"I've worked with Lewis since he was doing small club shows so to see him play in front of a sold out crowd at TRNSMT was a special moment, made all the more special by seeing my mask out there.

"The whole team at DF were devastated by the loss of Scott Hutchison last year and Frightened Rabbit are another band that we've shared some special moments with.

"So I thought I'd see how much we could raise for Tiny Changes, the charity set up by his family in his memory.

"Its main focus is to raise awareness about young people's mental health issues. Hopefully there will be a bidding war and lots of money will be raised."

Music fans have until around 1.30pm on Monday to bid for the mask.

The band said in a tweet: "The bold @LewisCapaldi has signed the Chewbacca mask he wore for @TRNSMTfest and it is being auctioned off with proceeds going to @tinychanges.

"Who agrees @NoelGallagher should chip in with a bid?"

During his performance on Sunday the 22-year-old covered Oasis hit Don't Look Back In Anger - changing the lyric at one point to "Don't Chewbac In Anger".
