Last night veteran comedy star Joan Rivers appeared on the The Late Show with David Letterman, where she was seen mocking 'Skyfall' singer, Adele, over her weight.

Letterman asked the American television personality what it was like attending Sunday’s Academy Awards, she described it as “a lot of new faces on a lot of old bodies”.

Rivers said she met the British songbird, for the first time, at the Oscars.

“What is her song? Rolling in the deep?” Joan asked. “She should add fried chicken!”

Joan then joked she overheard Adele moaning, “My throat, my throat, I don’t know if I can swallow! I said, ‘Oh, yeah — you can swallow!’”Joan hit back.

However it’s not the first time Rivers has teased the 'Set Fire to the Rain' singer about her weight. When Adele gave birth to her first baby last October, Joan tweeted, @Joan_Rivers: "Congratulations to Adele on the birth of her 68 pound 8 ounces bouncing baby boy." Ouch!
