What is Sam Smith’s net worth, what has he said about his weight loss, who’s his boyfriend and what are his biggest songs?

HE may share his name with a chain of pubs, but it's not likely anyone is going to be confused about who Sam Smith is anytime soon.

By winning Grammys and Oscars, recording platinum albums and finding love – Sam has established himself as one of music's biggest and most talented stars.

How old is Sam Smith and what's his net worth?

Sam Smith is a 25-year-old London-born singer-songwriter, now based in the States.

During his youth Sam was a member of several choirs and jazz bands, and studied with jazz pianist Joanna Eden after being a pupil at the Youth Music Theatre UK.

His music industry breakthrough came when he was just 20 years old, after house duo Disclosure featured his vocals on their track Latch.

At the time the group and the singer were both signed to PMR Records, but after releasing his own singles, Sam made his debut album, In The Lonely Hour.

The album hit number one in the UK in 2014, and his catchy string of tracks saw him start to feature on US TV.

He came out as gay in the same year and revealed a former relationship with Jonathan Zeizel had inspired his debut album.

Is new album The Thrill Of It All is out now.

What are Sam Smith's best-known tracks?

The year after singing on Disclosure's Latch, Sam also gave his vocals to Naughty Boy's ultra-catchy tune La La La in 2013.

His first solo single was called Lay Me Down, but then he released two more megahit number one singles in 2014 – Money On My Mind and Stay With Me.

That was followed by Adele-style ballad I'm Not The Only One.

His popularity in the charts tailed off a little until he came back in 2015 with a brand new hit song, Writing's On The Wall – which was the theme of Bond movie Spectre.

Now he has released his first single in two years, Too Good At Goodbyes, which is about being "insanely single" – and walking away from a relationship due to fear of getting hurt.

Who is his boyfriend Brandon Flynn?

Brandon Flynn, 23, was born October 11, 1993, and is an American actor.

He is best known for his role as Justin Foley in the hit Netflix series 13 Reasons Why.

He has also had roles in Home Movies and BrainDead.

Brandon has also starred in numerous plays, including Much Ado About Nothing and The Crucible.

It's not clear exactly when Brandon met singer Sam.

Sam and Brandon were snapped kissing and cuddling as they went shopping in the Big Apple over the summer of 2017.

The new couple enjoyed lunch together in the West Village before walking away from the restaurant hand-in-hand.

The pair's outing comes just weeks after Brandon came out and revealed he identifies as a part of the LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender) community.

When did Sam Smith win an Oscar?

Despite mixed reviews from music fans, Sam's Bond theme Writing's On The Wall – written by himself and Jimmy Napes "in 20 minutes" – won the Academy Award for Best Original Song at the 2016 Oscars.

But major controversy was caused when Sam collected his award.

Dedicating his win to the LGBT community, Sam claimed to be the first openly-gay man to ever receive an Oscar, which was not the case.

In fact, Sam wasn't even the first openly-gay man to have ever received Best Original Song, as Sir Elton John bagged on for Can You Feel The Love Tonight in 1995.

The win was also marred by a row between Sam and the filmmaker Dustin Lance Black, who angrily told him on Twitter to "stop texting" his partner Tom Daley.

How did Sam Smith lose weight?

Between 2015 and 2016 Sam lost a lot of weight and now looks incredibly different.

He credits celebrity nutritionist Amelia Freer, who has also worked with James Corden and Kirstie Allsopp, with helping him shift the pounds.

At the Grammys in 2016, he also said: "I've just not eaten like a pig anymore – that's what I'm doing.

"It's very very difficult. I love food so much so it's a constant battle. It's always going to be a battle but I'm trying my best."

Sam posted some selfies from the gym during his weight loss, though he says Freer's diet plan is all about learning to "love yourself".
