If the writing was on the wall, Sam Smith totally missed it.
The British pop singer was nearly scared out of skin during a hilarious appearance on “Ellen” on Tuesday during which he was frightened not once, but twice, by two heart-stopping spooks.
The “I’m Not The Only One” singer was discussing how he lives in a haunted 300-year-old home, but has “a good relationship with the ghosts,” when a lone phantom snuck up behind him, giving him a fright.
After collecting himself, he confessed that he thought he’d be surprised by something jumping out of a large box to his left.
Ellen, ever the trickster, chucked and assured him “no,” just before a person dressed like a sinister granny pounced out of the container, sending Sam collapsing in fright once again.
“Oh my God, my heart,” he ached. “I’m not singing again.”
