There's no denying that Emma Thompson is one of the world's most treasured stars.

And last year she further cemented her legendary status when she was caught on camera enthusiastically dancing at the ITV concert special, An Audience with Adele.

The Love Actually actress quickly became an internet sensation with her animated dance moves, which Jimmy Fallon questioned her about this week on The Tonight Show.

After reliving the footage, the two-time Academy Award winner admitted she was frustrated with the more conservative members of the famous audience who were in attendance at the London Palladium.

"All the celebrities were sitting downstairs, and they were all just sitting there!" she explained.

"It was just like, 'Get up! We've been in Covid for two years! We're out!'

"It was the first time we'd all been out. Party! Thank God we can get out."

As well as busting out some moves, Dame Emma also had a one-to-one moment with Adele during the concert where she surprised the singer by inviting one of her old teachers on stage.
