The 45-year-old comic appeared on the show alongside hosts Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary.

As the topic of the Adele concert was brought up, he confessed: “I was swallowing sick!

“You could tell I was rubbish because it was the only time Emma Thompson stopped dancing.”

You’d think I’d learn the words?

In addition, Alan went on to insist the performance wasn’t “set up”.

He continued: “And people still to this day think that was set up! You’d think I’d learn the words?

“Oh, I’m at the Palladium with Adele, I’ll wing it.”

Adele drafted Alan on stage after being surprised by her old English teacher Miss McDonald.

The moment happened shortly before Adele was set to perform her hit track, Make You Feel My Love.

Instead, Alan began the song with the help of various celebrities at the London Palladium.

What else has Alan been up to?

The comedian is currently promoting the new series of Interior Design Masters.

Ahead of the episode tonight, Alan dropped in for a chat on The One Show earlier this week.

“Sorry about that,” responded host Alex Jones.

“No it’s alright,” Alan said, before joking: “Thanks for the flowers.”
