‘I remember I was like, “Can I hug you? Oh, can I hug you again?” I probably asked about three/ four times. She’s lovely.’

Speaking about his recent trip to see Adele perform at her residency in Vegas, Stormzy said: ‘That was amazing. Honestly, probably the best show I’ve ever seen. And I’ve seen a lot of shows. 

‘In terms of the intimacy of it. It was very like… you’re in there but it’s like a small theatre but it’s f***ing Adele. 

‘It’s got all the glitz and glamour like a massive arena show, but it’s in a small place and it’s kind of like, wonderful. Beautiful and spectacular and glamorous… I was like, chefs kiss.’

Jonathan asked if he’d ever like to duet with Adele, making Stormzy laugh as he replied: ‘Come on man, know what I mean. 

‘I wish, I wish… you’ve got to… there’s leagues and levels Jonathan. Are you f***ing joking.’

Fellow guest and comedian Roisin Conaty joked: ‘I went for my 30th birthday and was really broke. It was a really depressing birthday. 

‘Being broke in Vegas is like being broke ‘squared’. What I could afford was the bingo of Vegas.’

He said: ‘I met Taylor, she’s lovely. She’s amazing. She was just so lovely. We all left and looked at everyone like, “How f***ing nice is she?” 

‘We spoke for like an hour, she was lovely, had advice, you know when you’re just kind of like, ‘Ah, you’re just amazing.’ I’m a fan though.’

Roisin added: ‘I’m not charming like Stormzy. I come across quite creepy. I met Brandon Flowers from The Killers. I’m a big fan. I was so earnest. 

‘He said, ‘”Do you want a photo?” That’s celeb talk for, “Let’s end this.” I was too creepy.’
