Carrie went on to admit: ‘Despite my best intentions, every time I mentioned the interview to people, I’d stuff up the pronouns.’

”He’s had a fascinating life,’ I’d say. ‘Sorry ‘they’ have had…’ ‘His new music is incredible – argh! – ‘their’ new music,’ and so it went on.’ 

However the TV host revealed that Sam told her they too make the mistake sometimes.

‘I am a human being. I have been called he and him since the day I was born, 27 years ago,’ they said. 

In February, Sam revealed their fears that they will be misgendered forever.

But speaking to Zane Lowe on Apple Music’s Beats 1, Sam said it hasn’t been easy.

They said: ‘What’s hard is people changing their vocabulary; that’s very, very difficult. It takes time. Everyone messes up. I’m going to be misgendered to the day I die’.

‘This is going to take a long, long time for people to not use gender in their vocabulary.’

Speaking on Heart Breakfast that same month, the Grammy-winning star added: ‘I’m not male or female, I think I flow somewhere in between.

‘It’s all on the spectrum. I’ve always had a little bit of a war going within my body and my mind.

‘I do think like a woman sometimes, in my head. Sometimes I’ve questioned ‘Do I want a sex change?’ It’s something I still think about, like, ‘Do I want to?’
