Phillip Schofield responds after viewers spotted issue with Boy George during Adele show

By Jessica Sansome

Phillip Schofield has issued his own response after viewers spotted an issue while he was in the audience for Adele's ITV special.

The This Morning host was among the star-studded guests to attend the pop superstar's An Audience With... which aired on Sunday night.

Adele, 33, belted out from her new album, 30, and older tracks such as Hometown Glory and Hello for the pre-recorded ITV special, as well as taking questions from her celebrity crowd.

But viewers were quick to take to social media as they noticed the same problem in the audience.

They joked that whoever was set behind Boy George must have been fuming as he wore an extravagant hat which would have blocked the view of the person behind.

"Imagine getting tickets to #AnAudienceWithAdele and getting stuck behind Boy George’s giant hat," @alexaitch said.

@beanhive added: "Gutted for whoever’s sat behind Boy George and his giant hat #AnAudienceWithAdele."

And it turns out it was Phillip - who has now had his say on the matter after causing a social media storm.

He tweeted on Tuesday night which featured a photo of him peering around the Culture Club singer: "It was actually fine lol!

"I only had to look round it twice, it meant I bonded with Catherine O’Hara because we both laughed and started talking as @BoyGeorge sat down AND it was a great hat (then Brian Cranston got us drinks!) altogether an AMAZING night."

But the pair then ended up bumping into each other at ITV's annual Palooza at The Royal Festival Hall last night.

Taking a selfie together, Phillip shared on Twitter: "Not again!!! @BoyGeorge," as he once again peered from around the singer's hat.
