Newly svelte ​Sam Smith ​is saying​ thanks but no ​S​panx ​to a series of ​commercial deals, Dish Nation has exclusively learned.

The Oscar winner has been killing it with his diet and fitness regime in the last year, but he’s refusing to cash in on his new slim look​ and stunning body transformation.​

“Sam has gone from a slightly pudgy pop star to a slim, lean pop hunk. His transformation is so significant that many companies have seen him as a great poster boy for weight loss and fitness,” a source close to the 23-year-old revealed.

“The deals that have come across his agents and manager’s doors are astonishing.”

According to the insider, Sam has been offered more than $5 million worth of deals for diet products, exercise guides, workout gear and even “body slimming” outfits.​

“They’ve included nutrition shakes, bars, low calorie meals, powders and vitamin supplements,” the source added.

“And then there were other deals that were a little less flattering — garments that would help his figure look slimmer upstairs and down. One is a strange onesie version of Spanx that slims the belly and butt and enhances the chest. He doesn’t need that. Sam has walked away from these, preferring to focus on his music.”

Sam ​​is a wanted man​​ by publishers as well, now that he’s an Oscar winner.

“Although Sam has shied away from the deals, he’s considering writing a memoir now that he won the Oscar,” the source said.

“He’s been offered $2.5 million to talk about his incredible rise​ from London pub restroom attendant to Grammy and Oscar winner.”

The chart topper passed on a million ​dollar ​book deal a ​few weeks ago, and now with his statuette that offer has been upped by a 100%…and is rising.

Sam says he has ducked away from telling his story because he feels he hasn’t enjoyed enough “adventures” — but the statue has changed that.

​The last​ 12 months has been sensational for Sam. He won an Academy Award, four Grammy Awards, three BRIT Awards, a Golden Globe and scored the first ever James Bond theme song to hit number one​.
