The X Factor‘s Laura White has confirmed that she will duet with Chasing Pavements singer Adele.

Adele mooted the idea at one of her gigs and ranted that Laura should never have been kicked off the show.

Laura said: “I was so excited when I heard what Adele had said because I am one of her biggest fans. She is incredible.

“I have spoken to her about it. She wants to do a duet and I really want to do it too, so it is just working out the timing,” she said.

Adele is playing the Roundhouse in Camden later this month, and it is thought that Laura might join her on stage.

Lily Allen and Coldplay frontman Chris Martin have also publicly backed the jazz singer, and she said the support has been ‘so inspiring’.

“I think about all the people who have come out in support of me and I think I’m just little Laura – if you saw where I was from and I used to play tiny jazz bars to four people.

“When you leave The X Factor you think, ‘oh, is that it now for me?’ And I worked so hard to get there, but there are still so many people who believe in me,” she said.
