If you think you’re obsessed with Big Brother, might give you a run for your money.

The When We Were Young singer, 35, has reflected on her teen years early in the iconic reality show’s era and admitted she went to ridiculous lengths to make sure she didn’t miss any of the drama.

Speaking to her fans during her Weekends With Adele residency in Las Vegas, she reflected on a time when she felt reality TV was another level without people going on shows just to chase fame.

‘I was thinking about one time when I was in with my best friend Laura when i was 15, it was the final of in the UK,’ she recalled in a video doing the rounds on social media.

‘Things weren’t streamed then, we were on the with her mum who was in , listening to the Big Brother final down the f**king phone. That’s how into it we were!

‘And that was a year that, she was the first transgender contestant to ever win.’

As if Adele’s commitment to reality TV could ever be questioned again, she also revealed just how far she went to make sure Will Young won the first series of Pop Idol in 2002.

‘I remember also when Will Young won Pop Idol, my telephone landline bill was £500 – redial, redial, redial because I wanted him to win, and he did,’ she told the audience.

Introducing her next song, she added: ‘Anyway, that’s my favourite memory, it was when reality TV was worth f**king watching. This is When We Were Young.’

Hopefully she’s been keeping up with all the action with the new series, as ITV’s Big Brother revival has been everything we loved about the early series.

Unfortunately, it’s already with Farida and Kenny facing the public vote.

Big Brother continues tomorrow on ITV2 at 9pm.
