Adele impersonator spending £11,000 on stomach surgery to copy singer’s slim new look
July. 13, 2020
AN Adele impersonator is spending £11,000 on stomach surgery to lose 8st — so she can copy the singer’s new slimmed-down look.
Twenty-stone Maria Herriott, 43 , decided to have a gastric bypass op to get more gigs after she was told she looked more like the old fuller-figure Adele.
She said: “Surgery isn’t an easy option but I hope it’ll be the solution.
“I’ve taken out a big loan to cover the cost but I hope the gigs I get off the back of it will cover that twice over.”
In October Adele, 32, released selfies showing she had dieted away 7st
Maria, of Walthamstow, North East London, goes under the knife next month hoping for similar results from surgery that makes the stomach smaller.
She said: “The surgeons say I can get to 11st - but I’ll be happy with 12st.”
Maria was featured on ITV’s This Morning two months ago — and criticised by viewers for not looking enough like the star.
