James Corden recently took fans on a walk down memory lane as he reminisced over the moment that Adele claimed ownership of a single wad of gum chewed by Céline Dion.

The TV show host shared the story in the most recent episode of the Late Late Show.

For those unversed, the ‘proudest possession’ was shown off during Adele’s 73 Questions interview with Vogue magazine.

Corden even replayed clips from the interview where Adele hinted at Corden’s involvement in the wad of gum and admitted, "That is a true story.”

“The weekend before we had shot [Carpool Karaoke], we went on a little weekend away to Mexico, my family, [Adele], her son and we spent a weekend together."

He also went on to explain, "And the following Friday I was shooting the Carpool with Céline Dion and Adele just loves Céline Dion."

Corden added that Adele was complete “star-struck by her” so right before they went on their car ride, Corden asked Dion for a piece of gum which "I ripped off a piece and she put it in and I said, 'Don't. I'll do it,' because, you know, she was about to do the fold."

"I said, 'I got it, I got it, I got it.' I then had to give it to [Diana Miller] and I was like, 'I need to keep this super safe!' And she took it and looked at me like, 'I think this is the day he's lost his mind.' "

"And I said, 'Please keep it safe.' And then I gave it to [Adele] for her birthday. She's a difficult person to buy for. A candle doesn't cut it!"
