Phillip Schofield has revealed that Adele was overcome with nerves as she performed her special concert for ITV at London Palladium.
The This Morning presenter attended the glamorous event on Saturday with his estranged wife Stephanie Lowe as his red carpet date.
Discussing the night on the ITV programme on Monday with co-host Holly Willoughby and guests Julia Hartley-Brewer and Matthew Wright, Phillip gave an insight into Adele’s concert.
‘She was on full form,’ Phillip shared. ‘She was very emotional when she came out.’
Matthew interrupted, claiming: ‘She hates performing live despite the fact she’s brilliant.’
‘Genuinely terrifies her,’ Phillip replied. ‘She was very, very nervous, but it’s always such a shame because she’s so extraordinary.’
Phillip then went on to detail what viewers will be able to expect from the special, which is due to air on ITV on November 21.
‘It was a mix of classic songs, songs from the new album, and in the audience format, so there were people asking questions,’ he said.
‘Very star-studded, there were some pretty big names there,’ Phillip continued, before going on to say he was sat in front of Schitt’s Creek actress Catherine O’Hara and behind Boy George.
According to reports, Adele, 33, broke down in tears and admitted to being ‘so nervous’ performing in her hometown for the first time since 2017.
It’s said Adele was reunited with a familiar face from her childhood while also giving the microphone to Alan Carr so he could entertain the audience while she reapplied her make-up.
The comedian, 45, reportedly tried to belt out the singer’s latest song Easy On Me prompting laughter from the crowd.
An insider told The Sun: ‘Adele was playful and fun on stage but you could tell she was feeling the pressure.
‘She sounded better than ever but there were a couple of false starts throughout the evening, whether that be because of tech issues or her nerves.
‘But it was an absolutely incredible event – there wasn’t a dry eye in the house.’
This Morning airs weekdays at 10am on ITV.
