Sam Smith got gender wrong again on Good Morning Britain on Monday when Ranvir Singh referred to the non-binary star as “he”.
The host, 46, made the slip during an interview with fashion designer Harri, who created Sam’s infamous latex look for Saturday’s BRIT Awards.
Smith, 30, uses the pronouns they/they and was previously misgendered weeks earlier on the show by Richard Madeley, who later apologized.
Speaking to designer Ranvir, he said: “Still ahead of Good Morning Britain – Harry Styles may have swept the board at the BRITs but it was Sam Smith who stole the show with this dramatic latex balloon-esque suit.”
Before continuing: “How did he get in there? Who designed it? And why did he decide…’

Ranvir quickly corrected himself and said, “You! Why did you choose it?’.
They discussed Sam’s red carpet appearance in a quirky, balloon-like latex outfit.
The ensemble featured a high neckline, puffed arms and legs, and a zip-fly design across the chest.
Speaking on the show, the Kerala-born menswear designer said, “I had four days to make the outfit.”
Harri – full name Harikrishnan Keezhathil Surendran Pilla – gushed over the singer, saying they did a “fantastic job” in the awkward ensemble.
He further admits that no talcum powder was needed to put the suit on, saying “He dressed it like a tailor-made suit made for him.”
Host Richard, 66, made the mistake about Sam’s gender in January while debating whether the singer’s latest music video for “I’m Not Here To Make Friends” is too sexualized when the slip-up happened.
And Madeley was speaking about the scenes in Smith’s video when he accidentally referred to her as “he.”

Apologies: Smith, 30, is non-binary and uses the pronouns sie/her and was already wrong on the show by Richard Madeley, who later apologized, weeks earlier
Hard work: On the show, the Kerala-born menswear designer said: “I had four days to make the outfit.”
Co-host Susanna Reid, 52, corrected his mistake and he apologized.
The video for Smith’s new single sees them arrive at a castle in a helicopter before dancing provocatively in corsets, garter belts and nipple tassels.
And while a panel was discussing the video, Richard told guest Shivani Dave that they “had a point” and they informed him that they also use she/them pronouns.
Richard apologized a second time and said: “I’m so sorry. I’ll learn to do that.’
Shivani later tweeted: “I’ve had messages from people concerned about Richard Madley miscoding me on @GMB
“I corrected him, he apologized and took it on board. A master class on how to do things when you screw up, we shared a thumbs up and I told him his hair looks great.

Gloria, Sam’s fourth studio album, was released Friday and is the first LP they have released in three years.
It came after almost a year of public preparations by Sam, who released the album’s first single “Love Me More” in April 2022.
The songwriter “Money on My Mind” then took TikTok by storm with his viral hit single “Unholy” featuring German singer Kim Petras.
The track peaked at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming the couple’s first song to make it to number one.
Smith revealed on Friday that they were spat on in the street after coming out as non-binary.
The Grammy winner changed her gender pronouns to her/her in 2019 and said she wished they had done it sooner, but was also open about the shocking backlash.

Supportive: Nonbinary panelist Shivani Dave, who was also misgendered by Richard on the show, shared this post afterwards
Speaking to Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1, the pop star revealed that while there have been no issues with her new gender identity in her private life, she has been harassed since she first appeared on the streets of England.
They explained: “I think the only negative aspects of the fight were my public life and my job. And just the amount of hate and horniness that came at me was just exhausting.
“It was on the damn news. Someone spat at me in the street. It’s crazy. What I find difficult about that is when this happens to me and I’m famous, I’m a pop star, can you imagine how other kids, like queer kids, feel?
“And it’s just so sad that we’re in 2023 and it’s still happening. It’s exhausting and especially in England.’
Sam added: “So we really have two sides. My private life and then my public life. And in my private life there is nothing negative.
“My family, they can communicate with me. They always did. But they communicate with me even better now. My love life has gotten better because of it. I feel lovable. I’m comfortable in my own skin, but I wear what I want to wear.
“Ever since I changed my pronouns, it felt like coming home. I wish I knew what the words were when I was in school because I would have identified with them in school. Because that’s who I am and always have been.’
