Adele is set to return to London later this week to perform her first concert in the country in four years as part of ITV’s An Audience With…

Filling the seats won’t be mobs of screaming fans but some of the biggest names in the entertainment business, including Sir Elton John and Alan Carr.

As the singer gears up for the release of her much-anticipated album 30, out on November 19, she will be at the capital’s Palladium on Saturday to film the special, reports The Sun.

Attending will also be the girls from Little Mix and while David and Victoria Beckham were invited, it seems like they won’t be able to make it. 

Insiders told the publication: ‘An Audience With Adele is going to be the starriest show on screen this year.

‘They’ve invited some of the biggest names in music and celebrity to be part of the event.

‘David and Victoria are unable to attend but huge stars including Noel, the girls from Little Mix and Sir Elton John have all been invited.

‘As well as singing some of her new tracks live, those in the audience will be able to ask questions.’

Unfortunately, we won’t be able to know who else will attend and enjoy a preview to Adele’s new album until the concert airs on Sunday, November 21.

ITV previously confirmed that the audience will be populated by Adele’s ‘own personal heroes and heroines, fellow musicians, artists, actors, sportsmen, sportswomen and more’.

Speaking about the event, Katie Rawcliffe, head of entertainment commissioning at ITV, said: ‘As one of the world’s most in-demand stars, we are beyond thrilled to bring this one-off night to ITV.

‘Adele is a remarkable artist and this will be a very special event.’

The special will air a week after the British singer’s two-hour interview with Oprah titled Adele: One Night Only.

Adele and Oprah will be catching up right in the very same spot Meghan and Harry gave their interview back in March, in the presenter’s rose garden, according to Variety.

The special will be broadcast on November 14 in the US on CBS and while no UK broadcaster has yet been announced, it will likely follow the same pattern’s as the Sussexs’ interview, airing the following day on ITV.
