"Is they now entering male or female music award categories?

"And will they be retrospectively changing all the pronouns in their songs, given they sang repeatedly about ‘he’ based on their own life experiences?"

While Sam is yet to publicly respond to the Good Morning Britain host on Friday morning he took to Instagram to post a heartfelt explanation for his decision.

Sam, 27, said: "Today is a good day so here goes. I’ve decided I am changing my pronouns to THEY/THEM.

"After a lifetime of being at war with my gender I’ve decided to embrace myself for who I am, inside and out.

"I’m so excited and privileged to be surrounded by people that support me in this decision but I’ve been very nervous about announcing this because I care too much about what people think but f*** it."

He continued: "I understand there will be many mistakes and mis gendering but all I ask is you please please try.

"I hope you can see me like I see myself now. Thank you."
