"I was never really 'in'," she told Look. "I made my family call me Max when I was 4 and shaved my head to look like a boy... there was no shock."

She continued: "My granddad found out on Google recently and said, 'We've got loads of grandchildren, one of them was bound to be gay'."

Spraggan also revealed that most of her songs were written about a 27-year-old ex-girlfriend from when she was 18.

The 'Last Night' singer previously said that inspiring other young people to come out is "the biggest compliment ever".
