Bamforth, a 27-year-old account manager for Dio, had the amazing opportunity of meeting the one and only 25 singer last night (March 29) at her concert in Birmingham, England. She graced the stage in front of the sold-out crowd, and they took a selfie.
The two really do share an uncanny resemblance with one another. She wrote on Instagram, “Overwhelmed to have met @adele tonight and got a selfie! #adeletour #adeletour25 #adeletour2016 #adelebirmingham”:
We’re forever jealous.
Bamforth’s fiancé Tom Winkler, with whom she attended the concert, told the Daily Mail that he got Adele’s attention from their floor seats.
“All I did was very politely stand up with my hand up and asked her a question. I’m 6 feet 8, only two rows from the front. She called me handsome.”
Winkler added, “She’s been a huge fan. This has made her night.”
Ever since ~2012, when Adele unofficially broke out onto the scene as the Queen of music, Bamforth has been called her dopplegänger by friends and fans alike. She posts makeup tutorial videos of how to achieve Adele’s look from time to time, too.
Bamforth isn’t the only Adele lookalike: a 22-year-old Swedish woman named Ellinor Hellborg recently made headlines for being the British chanteuse’s spitting image.
She told the Daily Mail earlier in March, “I had thought about looking similar to Adele before, noticing small similarities in our profiles, but I didn’t really think anything of it until people on Instagram started commenting on it. It used to be once in a while, almost exclusively when my sister posted pictures of us on her account since she had a lot of followers on her Instagram.”
