‘They were absolutely shocked’: Sam Smith ’causes a stir amongst tourists visiting a former royal residence while filming an X-rated music video inside’

They’re currently working on a new album to be released in January.

And Sam Smith has reportedly caused quite a stir during the process as they hired Hertfordshire’s Ashridge House, a former royal residence, to film an X-Rated S&M themed music video.

The non-binary singer, 30, allegedly filmed the video while part of the stately home was still open to the public as a tourist attraction, with a source explaining that older visiters were ‘absolutely shocked’.

According to The Sun, guests of the country house were treated to ‘spectacular views’ during the raunchy video, as drag queens and scantily-clad extras took to their set for the day.

Popular among older tourists looking for a day trip, Ashridge House was the home to Dukes and Earls of Bridgewater for 245 years and was used by Henry VII.

An insider said: ‘There were plenty of older folk enjoying a walk in the grounds when a load of geezers in leather turned up in all sorts.

‘It probably nearly gave a few of them a heart attack. They were absolutely shocked.

‘Some of the staff at the house had to try to usher the dancers through discretely, and move the visitors through another part of the estate to avoid creating a scene. It was very funny,’ they explained.

While it is not known which song the raunchy music video was for, Sam recently announced that a new album, called Gloria, will be released on January 27 2023.

Taking to Instagram to share the good news, they penned: ‘Dearest sailors ⚓️ I am overjoyed to announce that my fourth album is called ‘GLORIA’. It will be yours on the 27th January 2023, and you can pre-order now. I’m feeling overwhelmed and emotional as I start to let go of Gloria and hand this work over to you.

‘It has been magical in every way to make this piece of music and by giving this record to you I am giving you part of my heart and soul. Gloria got me through some dark times and was a beacon for me in my life. I hope it can be that for you. Thank you for waiting so long. Only a few months now. Sam x’

The announcement comes as Sam recently revealed they had added to their selection of inkings. 

The Stay With Me hitmaker got the word ‘Romance’ on their midriff and a tiny anchor neck tattoo at Small Shop Tattoo in Brooklyn. 

Sam has previously revealed they were learning to love their ‘curves’ after admitting they used to starve themselves ‘for weeks’ ahead of photoshoots.

‘In the past if I have ever done a photo shoot with so much as a T-shirt on, I have starved myself for weeks in advance and then picked and prodded at every picture and then normally taken the picture down,’ Sam said. 

At the time Sam shared a shirtless selfie and added: ‘Yesterday I decided to fight the f**k back.’

Discussing their motivations behind the snap Sam continued: ‘Reclaim my body and stop trying to change this chest and these hips and these curves that my mum and dad made and love so unconditionally. 

‘Some may take this as narcissistic and showing off but if you knew how much courage it took to do this and the body trauma I have experienced as a kid you wouldn’t think those things.

‘Thank you for helping me celebrate my body AS IT IS @ryanpfluger I have never felt safer than I did with you. I’ll always be at war with this bloody mirror but this shoot and this day was a step in the right f*****g direction.’
