'I won't be singing next Bond theme', says Smith

Stay With Me star Sam Smith has ruled himself out of the running to sing the new Bond theme for the film Spectre.

Instead the singer has tipped Ellie Goulding to perform the honours.

Smith (inset), who has been heavily tipped to follow in the footsteps of acts including Adele and Shirley Bassey, said he definitely was not doing it.

He told Capital radio: "People seem to think I'm doing it but I have no idea what's going on.

"I'm being deadly serious. I think I would know by now.

"I heard Ellie Goulding was going to do it, it's definitely not me," he said.
