Adele's surprising link to a former Emmerdale favourite

By Craig Jones

Some might not know music superstar Adele has a surprising link to a former Emmerdale favourite.

Adele, 33, who has sold millions of records across the globe and won an Oscar, is a former schoolmate of Emily Head - who played Rebecca White in Emmerdale.

You’ll probably know Emily comes from a famous family, with her dad Anthony Head appearing in Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Little Britain, but few know of her connection to singer Adele.

As our colleagues at The Mirror report, whilst attending the BRIT School in Croydon to complete a BTEC course in acting, Emily brushed shoulders with some of the UK’s biggest singing stars.

Emily was at the school with the likes of Adele and Katy B.

She described it as ‘one of the best experiences’.

Emily said her time at the BRIT School was incredibly memorable.

"The Brit School was amazing, one of the best experiences," she says.

"I was in the theatre strand and Katy B and Adele were in the music strand.

"Adele was the year above me and Katy B was in my year. So we didn’t interact much but we would see each other."
