In a post sharing a video of the pair meeting “for the first time ever”, Winfrey wrote: “Before any interview, I ask my guest for their intention for our conversation. I went to see Adele as she was getting ready in my guesthouse to ask her [the] same thing.”

Adele’s new album will be released on 19 November.
