Adele has reportedly scrapped plans to star in an ITV1 music special after her Brit Awards acceptance speech was cut short.
The ‘Someone Like You’ singer was collecting the prestigious ‘British Album’ prize for 21 whenhost James Corden interrupted, forcing the broadcaster to later apologise for its actions.
Adele, who won six Grammys earlier this month, had been in talks with ITV about starring in a primetime show hosted by Christine Bleakley but has now decided to snub their offer.
She has also ignored a request to appear on The X Factor and is instead planning a performance on BBC rival show The Voice, the Daily Star Sunday reports.
“Adele was embarrassed by the way she was treated in front of millions of viewers by ITV,” a source told the paper.
“By turning down a music special with the network and also appearing on its main rival’s music show she is giving them the ultimate one-fingered salute.
“Adele is the biggest British name in music in the world at the moment and her refusal to work with ITV will hit them hard.”
Adele also won ‘British Female Solo Artist’ at the Brit Awards.
