HOW SOUND ARE your friends? Chances are, they’re probably not ‘Adele sound’.

As well as acting as the officiant at Alan Carr’s wedding, Adele made sure to sort out her best friend with the wedding gift of a lifetime …

… Meeting Celine Dion, obvs.

Carr and now-husband Paul Drayton jetted out after the wedding to see the My Heart Will Go On singer in Las Vegas, courtesy of Adele. As wedding presents go, it beats a toaster fo’ sho’.

Speaking on the Jessie Ware Table Manners podcast, he explained how he actually ended up making a holy show of himself upon meeting Dion, due to his fanboy behaviour.

A limo with ‘Just Married’ on turns up outside, and we all get in and go to this private jet, and she flies us to see Celine Dion!
So I’ve drunk and eaten the whole day and I’m all blotchy,’ he continued, ‘and we see this Celine Dion merchandise stand. And I think ‘Oh I can’t wait to get the leggings on, get the hoodie on, the hat, all that.
So I’m relaxed. I’ve got my suit in my carrier bag, and as we turn the corner to the gig we go into this room, and a curtain comes down and I just hear Celine Dion go: ‘I believe congratulations are in order!’
‘And I said ‘Oh my god Adele! You never told me we were meeting her!’ and I am top to toe in Celine merchandise… I just said, ‘This isn’t what it looks like! I have got married, I’m not a stalker or some mad fan!”

Carr finished by saying that she was lovely and that it was an “amazing day”. All’s well that ends well, eh?
