Taking to Twitter the Finnish actor said: "I admire a man in a Cewbacca mask. Well done @LewisCapaldi Rawrrggh".

Capaldi's hilarious appearance as the Star Wars character came amid a spat with Noel Gallagher who called him “Chewbacca” in a Variety interview.

The Oasis icon urged Capaldi to "enjoy his 15 minutes” before he branded Scotland a “third world country”.

The feud was sparked last month when, in a radio chat, Gallagher said: "Who's this Capaldi fella? Who's that idiot?"
