Sam Smith has revealed his new ‘pirate’ eye patch after having surgery on his eye.

The Stay With Me hitmaker had to have an operation to deal with a painful stye.

After showing off his red, swollen eye, he made a joke as he showed off his new look.

"Stye with me," he said as he shared a snap of himself wearing his eye patch on social media.

Sam, 26, had detailed his journey on his Instagram story, and admitted that he was worried about going under the knife.

Sharing one image of his swollen eye with a heart drawn around it, he said: "I know you’re probably sick of seeing my stye, but I don’t care. I think it’s beautiful"

Holding up his eye patch in another pic, he added: "So. I’m getting it operated on in 20 minutes. I’m f*****g scared and also super hyped that I get to wear this pirate patch"

The star continued: "I’m being super dramatic. It’s like a 15 minute operation lol"

Sam kept his followers in a loop by sharing a picture of himself lying on a hospital bed wearing a surgical cap, holding his hand up to his forehead in a swooning sort of motion.

But before long, he was pulling his best gangster pose as he showed off his new accessory.

The singer’s fans wished him well, but joined in the fun with their own eye puns.

"Because you’re all eye need," one commented.

And another said: "Eye’ve been burning up since you left"

People shared in the joke by sharing pictures and gifs of other people wearing eye patches, including Samuel L Jackson as Marvel character Nick Fury and Chris Hemsworth as Thor, which of course, isn’t a bad line-up to be part of.

Sam, who poked fun at himself by sharing a snap of Disney character Quasimodo, went on to declare himself "Single, sexy and sassy".
