Adele holds up audience to photobomb superfan

Adele has lived up to her playful reputation after she took a timeout to photobomb a fan at her Manchester Arena gig in England.

In the snap the Hello singer is seen crouching down onstage, flashing a cheeky smile for the camera during her sell-out performance on Tuesday night (08Mar16).


Taken by superfan Kerry Scott, the celebrity 'selfie' perfectly captures the star's easy-going charm which has made her such a hit with fans.


Kerry, from Liverpool, couldn't contain her excitement after landing front row seats and she was keen to document the whole night with a series of selfies.


At the end of the performance she ran over to catch a glimpse of her idol again as she was coming offstage. Turning her back to give a double thumbs-up, the superfan was taken my surprise when the down-to-earth star photobombed her.


Adele, who wore a shimmery Burberry gown for the performance, then took a moment to pose before descending the steps.


Speaking to the Liverpool Echo, Kerry said, "I just couldn’t believe it. She was going around the edge of the stage saying hello to people and interacting with the crowd and I just shouted to her if she could get a selfie (sic).


"She couldn’t come down off the stage but she posed for the picture and she said that my hair looked great. I just couldn’t believe it."


This isn't the first time Adele has shown a her light-hearted side to fans. The star has a history of inviting fans onstage and during her second performance in Belfast, Northern Ireland (29Feb16) she invited a female fan up to propose to her boyfriend.


Not pleased with his answer she joked, "You have to say yes, or (the crowd) is going to turn on you!"


Then she encouraged the audience to chant "Come on, Neil!", until he accepted his girlfriend's proposal.


Her next stop is a six night sell-out stint at London's O2 Arena (15-22Mar16).


The star's 105-date tour kicked off in Belfast and will tour U.K., before heading to Europe in the summer, the U.S., Canada and Mexico in the autumn.
