Adele swore like a trooper at the Brits & ITV accidentally broadcast it


Adele: sings like a goddess; talks like your grandma after one too many sherries at Christmas.

To the surprise of no one, she cleaned up at this year's Brit Awards, taking home the gongs for Best British Female, Best Single (Hello), Global Success Award (aka the 'sold loads of albums' award) and the big one - Album of the Year.

Which was good news as it meant four different acceptance speeches, including one where she received a tribute from British astronaut Tim Peake - something which she said would make her son think she was cool (she's pretty cool already mate).

In the course of her four acceptance speeches she also voiced support for Kesha, currently in legal proceedings over allegations against her producer Dr Luke, broke down in tears, laughed a lot, and then, in the best one, swore like a trooper. Hilariously, the person responsible for ITV bleeping out the naughty words didn't exactly nail it, bleeping everything but a very loud f-bomb when she said “you’re probably fucking bored of me anyway.”

Liam and Noel eat your heart out.
