Speaking to Grazia, Carr and his fellow RuPaul’s Drag Race UK judge Michelle Visage discussed Adele’s fourth studio album, which is rumoured to be coming out in February.
“I’ve actually heard some tracks on it [and] oh my god, it’s so amazing,” Carr said.
“The thing is… they change all the time because they’re really rough things. Everyone’s like, ‘What’s it like? What’s it like?’ But I said to her, ‘That voice, it’s like an old friend.’”
He continued: “There are some people in the charts who sound a bit like Adele and you go, ‘Oh, they sound [like] Adele’ and then when you hear Adele’s voice again you go, ‘Oh no, there’s only one. There’s only one Adele.”

Asked whether the singer’s voice had changed following her recent weight loss, Carr confirmed: “No, no, no. She’s still got a chunky but funky voice, don’t worry.”
Adele and the Chatty Man presenter have been friends for years, with the singer officiating at and paying for Carr’s wedding in 2018.
Five years have passed since Adele released her third studio album, 25. The singer’s debut album, 19, came out in 2008. It was followed by 21 in 2011.
The “Rolling in the Deep” musician dropped a hint about record while hosting Saturday Night Live in October after fans questioned why she wasn’t appearing as a musical guest as well.
She provided two reasons, stating: “My album’s not finished, and I’m also too scared to be both.
“I’d rather put on some wigs… have a glass of wine or six and just see what happens.”
