The 'Next To Me' star admits she is a big fan of the 'Rolling In The Deep' star.

Emeli Sande has confessed that she would love to meet and eventually work with Adele.

The 'My Kind Of Love' star told MTV News that she is a huge fan of the 'Someone Like You singer' and that a collaboration between the pair is something she would be very keen to do.

"That would be amazing," she admitted. "I still haven't met her but I'd really like to work with her."

Emeli's real name is in fact Adele and she changed to her middle name in order to diffuse any confusion between the artists.

Speaking about the similarities, she added: "I'm a big fan of hers. It's just a big coincidence - I'm glad I chose my middle [name] though."

The Scottish star is preparing to release her debut album 'Our Version Of Events' in the US and will be performing alongside the likes of Usher and One Direction at the iTunes Festival 2012 in September at the Roundhouse in Camden, London.
