Piers Morgan moved as Adele reunites with school teacher during ITV concert
Piers Morgan was admittedly touched watching the moment Adele was reunited with her former school teacher on An Audience With Adele.
The Rolling In The Deep singer hosted the concert special at the London Palladium with ITV airing the show on Sunday.
At one point during the night, Adele, 33, took a question from celebrity audience member Dame Emma Thompson about who had inspired her when she was younger.
She then named her English teacher Ms McDonald from Chestnut Grove School in Balham, and explained: ‘She left in year eight but she got me really into literature, I’ve always been obsessed with English and obviously now I write lyrics. But she also did street dance, I was too scared to go in, but like in the canteen they used to do these dances and stuff like that.
‘She was so bloody cool, so engaging, and she really made us care, and we knew that she cared about us and stuff like that. She used to have all these gold bracelets and gold rings. She was bloody cool and so relatable and likeable, that I really looked forward to my English lessons.’
Dame Emma then surprised Adele by inviting Ms McDonald on stage and the pair embraced. The singer was so emotional and tearful that she had to get her make-up reapplied and enlisted her pal Alan Carr to briefly entertain the audience. She also promised to take Ms McDonald’s number down so she could contact her.
The singer tweeted during the show: ‘Home Sweet Home. I’ve always dreamt of doing An Audience With… There was so much love in the room for eachother [sic], it felt like such a gig! Everyone was raucous and bang up for it! And my teacher Ms McDonald was there, it was just heaven.’
An Audience With Adele is available to watch on the ITV Hub.
