The singer was on stage when actress, Dame Emma Thompson, asked if there was anyone who inspired and left a lasting impact in her life as a child.

In response, the singer who had been a student at Chestnut Grove School in Balham, London, mentioned her English teacher, Miss McDonald, and spoke glowingly about her.

According to her, Miss McDonald left a positive mark on her and other students, adding that she reignited her love for books.

She however stated that the teacher left the school when she was 12 years old.

She said, “It was just one year, but she got me really into literature. Like I’ve always been obsessed with English and obviously, now I write lyrics.”

“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,” she added.

Adele soon discovered that Miss McDonald was in the audience and she burst into tears as her teacher walked down the aisle to the stage and gave her a warm hug.
