Britain’s Got Talent star Calum Scott, whose debut album Only Human hit number 4 on the UK Album Chart in 2018, has spoken out about how his friends “abandoned him,” after he came out to them.

Their reaction to his revelation left the singer struggling for years to accept his sexuality. Scott, who recently performed at the 62nd TV Week Logie Awards, has also spoken about how he has become a stronger man since he came out.The English singer and songwriter, who rose to fame after competing on the ninth season of Britain’s Got Talent in 2015 where he placed sixth, told Metro that while his friends didn’t accept him, his parents “were pretty great with my coming out.”“I wrote a song called No Matter What from the first album that details when I told my mum and she said she loved me ‘no matter what’ and it was this beautiful moment I had with her where I was finally able to get it off my chest,” Scott said.“When I released that song, it was me making peace with it and realising that actually my story’s one of hundreds and thousands and I thought, if I put that out there considering the kind of platform I have, this is the perfect opportunity for me to highlight a really important topic.”The singer told Attitude the positive fan reaction to No Matter What taught him to “use my own circumstances however painful to create a tool for people.” “That for me felt like my acceptance.

Not only did I accept myself as somebody who was honest, who talked about their situations but for me to talk honestly and openly about being a gay man, which I would never have done.”“No Matter What is without question the most personal song I have ever written, and the one I am most proud of,” Scott said of the song at the time of its release.
