Adele: 'Beyonce is most inspiring person'

Adele has called Beyoncé "the most inspiring person I've ever had the pleasure of worshipping".

The 'Hello' singer took to Instagram to share a photograph of her hugging a poster of Beyonce - who released her visual album 'Lemonade' late last month - and added a gushing caption.

She wrote: "I'm not late on this I've just been speechless. Beyoncé is the most inspiring person I've ever had the pleasure of worshipping. Her talent, beauty, grace and work ethic are all in a league of their own. I appreciate you so much! Thank god for Beyoncé X (sic)."

Adele has previously spoken of her admiration for Beyoncé and even quipped that the star is the most important person in her life, apart from her son Angelo.

Referring to reports that she had turned down a duet with Beyonce, she said: "Whoever started that rumour must have been having a laugh, because anyone who knows me knows that my main priority in life outside of my child is Beyoncé."

And Adele also joked that she plans to dress up as Beyoncé when she plays Glastonbury festival this summer.

She said: "One of the reasons I'm doing Glastonbury is to annoy all the people who are annoyed.

"I'm planning to go in disguise - perhaps as Beyoncé , although I'd need to get a spray tan and that wouldn't be considered politically correct. That said, I'm a huge fan of hers."
