He entered the Big Brother house aged 18 and was a gracious runner-up to Pete Bennett.

And it may have been fifteen years since Glyn Wise’s reality show stint – where he made his debut in lifeguard shorts – but some things cease to change as he hilariously dubbed himself a ‘walking fashion disaster’ after donning a ‘long blue tracksuit’ during Adele’s surprise appearance at Heaven GAY Club in London on Thursday. 

The 34-year-old Welshman, who regaled to MailOnline that he mistook the Easy On Me singer, 33, for Aussie sensation Kylie Minogue, 53, rocked up to the Charing Cross venue after athletics training and refrained from going to the VIP area because of his laid-back attire.

Explaining how he knew Cheryl Hole from RuPaul’s Drag Race, whom the songstress appeared on stage alongside, Glyn said: ‘I messaged to say I was there but didn’t want to go to VIP because everyone was so well dressed and I was in a long blue tracksuit with white socks and trainers. 

‘Not the best look to introduce yourself to a world wide superstar! Saying that, I introduced myself to the UK in lifeguard shorts entering Big Brother. Maybe I’m just a walking fashion disaster!’

Glyn, who also ventured into politics after his Big Brother days, recalled that the 12-time BRIT Award winner was ‘really enjoying the music’ and ‘dancing and swinging her hair to every beat.’

Recalling the moment the penny dropped that an A-lister was in the building, Glyn disclosed: ‘I had just been to athletics training. Me and some of the lads decided to go to Heaven. I was dancing and enjoying the music then all of a sudden everyone got their phone cameras out. 

‘I had never seen Adele in the flesh before, but I mistook her for Kylie Minogue. This is nothing new as I once spent the whole day with Mutya from Sugababes thinking she was Tracy Beaker from kid’s TV!’    

Adele shocked club owner Jeremy Joseph by turning up at London’s G-A-Y unannounced for the venue’s weekly stripping event.

The global superstar arrived round the back of G-A-Y on Thursday at 12:30am, half an hour before the start of Porn Idol, which was set up originally as a parody of Pop Idol, but instead of singing, party goers strip.

Jeremy, who is the owner of G-A-Y and Heaven, told MailOnline he was in disbelief when Adele arrived at the venue, hung out with the night’s performing drag queens, and even came on stage to judge the competition – before pole dancing herself.  

He said: ‘Someone turned up at the front door and said “Adele is coming, her car is pulling up around the back, is that okay?”

‘I was backstage getting the show ready, and our manager just looked and said, “yeah, whatever” and obviously they went round the back and there she was.  

‘She arrived about 12:30am and the show started at 1am and it went on until 2:15am in the end, she stayed until just a bit after the show and then she went.

‘When I got the message saying she was coming I told the queens “you need to get ready now” and they’re like “why?” and I said, “Adele is going to be here, and you need to look your best” and they looked at me like I was a stupid!’  

Jeremy described partying with the A-list singer, who this week won three BRIT Awards, as ‘surreal’ but said she had ‘no requests or demands’ – and just wanted to have fun after a dramatic few weeks.

He said: ‘She was so normal and so lovely and just came backstage and hung out and went into the box to watch the show.

‘It wasn’t advertised; it wasn’t planned, which makes it more special. She just turned up. There were no requests, no demands, there was nothing like that.

‘I’ve had friends message me saying “why didn’t you tell me?” and it’s because I just didn’t know. No one believes me but I didn’t know!

‘There were people crying their eyes out saying, “oh my God I’ve just seen Adele!”

‘She had friends with her, it was a big group, and it was like let’s go and have some fun. She didn’t want to go out and be pretentious; she just wanted to have fun. It is really surreal.’
