    Sam Smith doesn't like Valentine's Day

    The 27-year-old pop star - who has previously dated the likes of Jonathan Zeizel and actor Brandon Flynn - has admitted he isn't a fan of the most romantic date of the year


    Speaking to Jamie Theakston and Amanda Holden on Heart radio, Sam said: "Look, I don't want to be a Debbie downer but this isn't my favourite day. I'm quite anti Valentine's Day."

    Sam's comments prompted Jamie to say: "Am I right in saying it was invented by the card industry, anyway?"

    And Amanda Holden replied: "It was invented by Clintons."

    Then, Sam sarcastically suggested that his employment history with the card-selling store Clintons may be to blame for his own dislike of Valentine's Day.

    He quipped: "Exactly. I used to work in Clinton cards, that's probably why I hate Valentine's Day."

    Meanwhile, Sam came out as non-binary in 2019, saying he feels "like a woman sometimes".

    The London-born singer also revealed he has regularly considered having a sex change.

    He shared: "I've always had a little bit of a war going within my body and my mind.

    "I do think like a woman sometimes, in my head. Sometimes I've questioned 'Do I want a sex change?' It's something I still think about, like, 'Do I want to?'"

    The 'Too Good at Goodbyes' hitmaker also revealed that listening to conversations about being non-binary made him aware that's how he identified.

    Sam - who came out as gay in 2014 and has previously admitted to struggling with body image issues since his teens - reflected: "I'm not male or female, I think I flow somewhere in between. It's all on the spectrum."

    Tune in to Heart Breakfast with Jamie and Amanda, weekdays from 06:30-10:00.
