Adele insisted: ‘I was ready to go to jail!’ before revealing that the wife of the police officer who pulled her over, screamed at him down the phone which resulted in the Someone Like You hitmaker being let off.

Legend! During her ITV special on Sunday, Adele, 33, revealed how she once avoided getting a traffic ticket in Los Angeles thanks to her ‘Adelity’ celebrity status and influence

Standing up in the audience, Samuel asked the superstar singer if she’d ever used her ‘Adelity’ – Adele celebrity status – to get out of a ticket or ‘any other precarious situation.’

‘Well one time on the 401, Samuel L. Jackson. When I first moved to LA – which by the way was never meant to be as long as it is – when I first moved there…

‘I’d never really driven there, and I was in the fast lane, in the far left lane, not going that fast. There was quite a lot of traffic, and I was in a rental and the windows were tinted a bit too dark but I didn’t know that.

‘Anyway, I was minding my own business and then suddenly a police car pulls up behind me and is basically hinting that I need to pull over so I just stopped where I was — I’d never been pulled over in my life.’

Adele then explained that the police officer got on his megaphone and began screaming: ‘What the hell are you doing? Pull off, pull off.’

The star continued: ‘He pulls me over, I wind all my windows down as I’ve been taught to do before, especially if you get pulled over in America  – you never know what they’re going to do.

‘I handed him my British driver’s license, which might as well have been like a Blockbuster card, like he’d never seen one before, also it looks nothing like me, it was me when I was like 17.’

Oh no! ‘I was minding my own business and then suddenly a police car pulls up behind me and is basically hinting that I need to pull over so I just stopped where I was’ explained Adele

It was at this point that Adele’s fame came in handy, and ultimately led to her being let off the hook by the police officer.

Adele told the crowd: ‘He goes back to the car and comes back and he’s on the phone with his wife, screaming at him on the phone for pulling me over.

‘He’s like “I’m so sorry Adele, sorry, do whatever you need to do.” It was hilarious, but yes, so I did, kind of,’ she concluded, returning to Samuel’s original question.

‘I didn’t mean to! I was ready to go to jail. She saved the day really!’ asserted the superstar.
