Sam Smith has admitted to hating Valentine's day, saying it is "offensive" and "sad".

In an interview with Capital Breakfast's Roman Kemp on Friday, the pop singer said the day was "more like a funeral".

"It's offensive. Yeah, I'm sad today," the singer said. "Today's a sad day," Smith told Capital Breakfast.

In a separate interview, the singer was asked by one of the hosts of Heart Breakfast, Jamie Theakston, if they had sent any cards. 

Smith replied, "look I don't want to be a Debbie Downer but this isn't my favourite day.

"It's my 27th year of being single on Valentine's Day. I'm over it.

"I'm quite anti-Valentines day." 

Smith is currently working on their third album called To Die For which will be released in May 2020. 

The song To Die For was previewed on the 13, Febuary and has over three million views on Youtube.

"I wrote the song with Jimmy Napes and Stargate in LA during a time of self-discovery and heartbreak. This is for all the lonely hearts out there on another Valentine’s Day xx," Smith announced in a press release.
