Calum Scott is a singer and songwriter. He rose to prominence in 2015 after appearing on the ITV talent show Britain’s Got Talent.

There, he performed his version of Robyn’s smash, ‘Dancing on My Own,’ which made him immensely popular. Well, even if he’s famous for that song, he has had dancing partners in the past.

Previously Dated a Painter and a Decorator

The gay singer and songwriter previously had a relationship, and he opened up about it in an interview with Attitude.

During the conversation, he was questioned if traveling worldwide interfered with his dating life. Then he replied, saying he had dated a painter and decorator guy who had a problem due to his tour.

Furthermore, he added that his partner was a true gentleman who worked from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The former couple dated for a short time. He knew he was about to embark on a tour with Emilie Sande and that the album would be released the following year.

But he knew he wouldn’t be able to spend time with him, and it got to the point where he had to tell him he was going to be away, and he didn’t take it well.

The singer said that traveling around the world hindered his dating. He wanted to find someone very normal and down-to-earth, and he said that people should date of the same industry.

They stayed in touch, texting and stuff like that. The singer and songwriter said they would try to meet up if they were in the same country, but Smith is a jet-setter working hard on his album.

Although Scott denied dating Smith, during an interview with Attitude in November 2018, the interviewer said he had dated Sam Smith a few years back and asked if he communicated with Smith after his split with Brandon Flynn.

He responded that he needed to give him some space because they were simply friends. He also stated that Smith had a lot of people supporting him and was still on tour and busy. So, Scott didn’t want to put him under any additional pressure.
