Sam came out as non-binary last year. They had previously identified as a man, but now identifies neither exclusively as a man nor a woman.

The I’m Not the Only One crooner has asked fans, loved ones and media to refer to them using ‘they/them’ pronouns.

‘Non-binary / gender-queer is that you do not identify in a gender,’ Sam told actress and activist Jameela Jamil in March last year.

‘You are a mixture of all different things. You are your own special creation. That’s how I take it – I am not male or female. I think I float somewhere in between – it’s all on the spectrum.’
