Callum Scott's first love as an openly gay man didn't pan out as well as he would have hoped, mainly because of his integration into the music industry. Learning from his previous sob story, he has decided to find 'the one' belonging to the industry mentioned above.
The golden boy of singing first captured public imagination after his stint at Britain's Got Talent (BGT) 2015. He has followed up his success in the reality show by launching a solo career and has already given numerous hits including You're The Reason and Dancing On My Own.

The Britain born performer had a tough upbringing after his dad left his mother and her sister alone to relocate to Canada. His mother brought him up and his sister, Jade. His mother had to juggle between jobs to support her two children. Amid all the hardships, the brother and sister duo found solace in music and started singing.
Before coming to BGT, Calum worked as a recruitment officer with the city council, filing up the papers, taking calls and xeroxing. He also won a local singing competition Mail's Star Search, organized by Hull Daily Mail. After winning the talent hunt, he toured the whole of UK as Maroon 4, a tribute band for the famous Maroon 5.
Electrifying BGT Performance Propels Callum To Stardom
His fortunes, however, were to change after the BGT auditions. His mother highly thought Calum's sister who worked as a pub singer in the Hull area to leave a mark in the show. The expectations for Calum were not much.
However, it did not work much for Jade, but Calum rocked the auditions. Singing the slower version of Robyn's Dancing On My Own, he had the whole of the audience on their feet after the performance. Whats more, the judges were equally impressed, and Simon Cowell pressed the Golden Buzzer, meaning he was drafted directly to the semifinals of the show.
Eventually, Calum finished sixth on the show, and after the show released his version of Dancing On My Own. The song became the highest selling number of 2017 in Britain and reached the number 2 of the charts.
Furthermore, he released his first studio album Only Human on March 2018 after signing a contract with American record producing company Capitol Records, Universal Music Group. The album featured his hits, You're The Reason and Dancing On My Own along with other songs.
His Net Worth Post BGT Success
The openly gay singer's new contract with Capitol Records has not only opened new audiences in America, but he has also had his net worth boosted.
Signing for one of the best record labels in the States, he is sure to have a contract with a hefty paycheck. Added to that the earnings from social media sites and streaming sites, Calum boasts a net worth in millions.

Callum Scott's Bio: Struggles With Sexuality, Gay
Born on 12 October 1988 in Hull, Calum had difficulties with his sexual orientation all his life. He opened up about being a gay to his family members when he was 15 but kept his sexuality a secret to the broader audiences. However, after his exertions with the BGT, his sexuality did not remain hidden for long.
The up and coming singer has time and again spoken of his struggle to come terms that he was a gay and had his entire childhood troubled by that fact. However, the Hull-born singer did admit that everyone had been overly supportive of his sexuality once he opened up. Whats more, he is a good friend to another troubled gay singer Sam Smith, who he credited for helping him cope with his sexuality.
He Has Dated Both Sexes: Girlfriend And Boyfriend
During his BGT journey, he opened up to Mirror in May 2015, that he was involved in a romantic relationship with a girl in 2013. Calum's dating with his girlfriend, however, did not last long because of the constant quarrels and bitterness involved in the relationship. The couple broke up in amicable terms and added that he was single then.
And before the release of his album in March 2018, he revealed that he had been a part of another failed relationship, this time with a guy. Despite admitting that his boyfriend was lovely, the time constraints that came with his job meant that he could not commit to his partner entirely which led the couple to separation.
However, the sweet-voiced singer opened up doors for future boyfriends saying 'I’m back on the market… I’m definitely looking for love.'
Sam Smith: Callum's Alleged Partner
And it didn't take much time for him to find one. He is rumored to be dating Sam Smith, an openly gay British singer.
Callum had always admired the 24-year-old pop star and desired to work with him. In April of 2017, the rumored partners were spotted together outside of their studio commitments.

Speaking to Daily Star online, the 28-year-old Hull native confessed to seeing his rumored bae, Sam Smith who's currently on the process of recording an album, regularly. In an effort doused the alleged romance, he claimed that the two are just good friends.
When asked if he had inspired a song or two on Sam's new album, he simply replied:
No man, I'm not a heartbreaker
Unless we get to hear Sam's new album, it's all speculative game at this point. For art's sake, let's hope that he's a heartbreaker; heartbreak precedes great music.
