Britain's Got Talent star Hope Murphy has revealed that Adele had inspired her to audition for the reality TV talent show.
The 16-year-old told a Sunday newspaper that she had been told that she needed to lose some weight if she wanted to have a career in the music industry by a record producer.
The Essex lass told the Daily Star Sunday that she is currently on a diet and is determined to win the competition.
She explained: "Adele has been an inspiration, 100%.
"She has done so well for herself and she hasn't felt the pressures of losing weight. She's won so many awards.
"I don't think anyone pays attention to her weight because she's so talented. She's a massive inspiration for me. She's a bigger girl and she's done so well for herself.
"I admit I am dieting and I do think it would make me more confident as a performer."
She added: "But I'm not worried about it. I love singing and will do that no matter what my weight is."
