Sam's comments prompted Jamie to say: "Am I right in saying it was invented by the card industry, anyway?"
And Amanda Holden replied: "It was invented by Clintons."
Then, Sam sarcastically suggested that his employment history with the card-selling store Clintons may be to blame for his own dislike of Valentine's Day.
He quipped: "Exactly. I used to work in Clinton cards, that's probably why I hate Valentine's Day."
Meanwhile, Sam came out as non-binary in 2019, saying he feels "like a woman sometimes".
The London-born singer also revealed he has regularly considered having a sex change.
He shared: "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?'"
The 'Too Good at Goodbyes' hitmaker also revealed that listening to conversations about being non-binary made him aware that's how he identified.
Sam - who came out as gay in 2014 and has previously admitted to struggling with body image issues since his teens - reflected: "I'm not male or female, I think I flow somewhere in between. It's all on the spectrum."
