Sam Smith

He is arguably the biggest name in music at the moment. Sam Smith cleaned up at this year’s Grammy Awards and is now a global superstar. Such is his success that it is hard to believe that just two years ago he was serving beers and cleaning toilets at a London pub. 60 Minutes travels with Sam back to where he wrote his debut hit album, Lonely Hour, and to the tiny church where he first performed for family and friends. Sam opens up to Allison Langdon about his sexuality, his battles with weight, and why he embraces melancholy. Underneath it all is a lovely young man with a warm smile and great sense of humour.


"I was warned by many that fame made you feel really, really lonely."  Sam Smith opens up about the highlights and the challenges that come with being a celebrity.
