In a sketch on BBC1 tonight, the superstar singer Adele takes on the role of Jenny (a fictional woman) to audition for a fake pilot show.
In her guise as fake-Adele, she will try to fool nine real Adele personators that she’s a good enough Adele impersonator to get the gig.

As well as performing and chatting with Graham Norton during the TV special, she filmed a comedy sketch, donning a prosthetic chin and nose to subtly alter her appearance for the audition. Long gloves covered the tell-tale tattoo of “Angelo” on her hand.
Nine Adele impersonators were then invited to the Wimbledon Theatre to audition for Norton’s new top-secret TV show.
They were joined by “Jenny” as they waited backstage for their audition, with the Grammy-winning singer reinventing herself as a part-time nanny with a “calm and slow” voice.
Backstage, she told the other impersonators that business had been “a bit slow recently” due to “not much demand”.
Pretending to be nervous, “Jenny” was comforted by the other singers when she says she feels sick and dizzy ahead of her performance. Due on last, she missed her cue to start Make You Feel My Love.
