London - Céline Dion says she is Adele's biggest fan.

The Canadian singer has been gushing about the 24-year-old British songstress, admitting that she may embarrass herself if she meets her.

As well as being in awe of Adele's voice, Céline is full of admiration for the star's positive body image.

Céline told September's Vegas magazine: "I love literally everything about her. I love her extreme talent. I love her writing. Her songs come from the soul. She's incredibly beautiful. I think it's very refreshing to see, and don't get me wrong when I say this, somebody who is not looking extremely anorexic."

The 44-year-old artist also hails mother-to-be Adele as someone capable of changing the world.

Céline admits she would crumble if she got the chance to meet her younger idol and jokes that she has no chance of playing it cool in front of her.

Céline continued to explain: "She is going to help us, she's going to help the world. It's going to be bad when I meet her. I'm going to give her the biggest hug. I'm not kidding." - Bang Showbiz
