Sam Smith enjoyed Christmas in sunnier climes, sharing a picture of themself frolicking in the sea in leopard-print bikini bottoms.
The chart-topping singer posted the snap while wishing fans a happy Christmas, which showed Sam basking in the sunshine while standing thigh-high in the ocean with their back to the camera and face held up slightly to catch some warmth.
Sam, who came out as non-binary in 2019 and explained that they were changing their pronouns to they/them after ‘a lifetime of being at war with my gender’, was clearly enjoying the festive season away from the cold of the UK.
‘Merry Christmas Sailors ⚓️ sending you healing and love today ✨,’ they wrote in the accompanying caption.
The Unholy hitmaker also posted a video of them strutting down the beach with a pal – also clad in bikini bottoms – as they swung their hips and ran their hands through their hair.
‘Go girl ❤️,’ commented model and former Strictly Come Dancing winner Abbey Clancy, clearly a fan of their sashaying.
Sam, who recently performed at the White House as President Joe Biden signed into law the historic equal marriage bill, took to Instagram just a few weeks ago to share a picture of themselves on a motorbike in only underwear, trainers and a flowing fur coat after saying they had finally ‘learned to be confident’ in their skin.
The Stay With Me singer told British GQ: ‘Over the last few years, as I’ve become confident in my skin, I’ve got loads of wonderful romantic attention.
‘It’s been incredible. I’m so open to it. And I know what I want, and I know who I am and I’m excited for that.’

In a backstage interview at Capital’s Jingle Bell Ball with Barclaycard with Roman Kemp, Sam also gave an update on their tattoos – which now number around 35 – as they admitted they felt they might be ‘addicted’.
Chatting about some of their new additions, Sam revealed: ‘I’ve been going onto the torso… It was intense, but it was good. We were listening to loads of pop music and it was fun and we had a good time.’
‘I was just eating Cheetos, just getting into the mood,’ Sam said of a recent inking session.

After Roman asked what they had tattooed on their body now, Sam replied: ‘It says “romance” on my belly. And then my anchor on my chest. I’m addicted now. I’m like 35-plus tattoos.’
