Things started off positively for the Breathe Easy hitmaker as he met up with dating agents Anna Williamson and Paul C Brunson earlier in the day.

There, they introduced him to a picture of 35-year-old brunette Adele, with Lee being very impressed by her stunning snap and stating she didn't look her age. 

However, as the excited star arrived for his date, he was somewhat confused by Adele's appearance.

Though very pretty, the Civil Servant from Wakefield looked somewhat different from her earlier glamorous snap and Lee wasn't too impressed.

Speaking to the camera during a later interview, he said: 'Wow, um, Adele, yeah, um, yeah, wasn’t exactly what I was expecting.

'She doesn’t exactly look like the picture Paul and Anna showed me.'

And it appeared that Celebs Go Dating fans agreed with his sentiments as they declared the musician had been 'catfished' by Adele.

Several rushed to Twitter with their comments on the date, with one writing: 'Lee Ryan from Blue has been catfished.'

Animal print is everywhere at the moment but if you've had enough of leopard and Dalmatian spots, then how about switching things up a bit and choosing zebra stripes?

While another remarked: 'Lee’s date is without a clue and a insta filter.'

'Lee Ryan from Blue should sue his date for trades description', declared a third watcher.

'This is my biggest fear as someone who loves a filter. Turning up to a date where someone’s only seen photos of you and doesn’t even recognise you. HELL', said a fourth.

A fifth stunned fan tweeted: 'This Adele on Celebs Go Dating is a huuuuge catfish what the hell?!?! Is she even the same woman?!'

The date continued to go from bad to worse, with Adele not being impressed with the fancy fish restaurant and oysters on offer, instead preferring a Burger King meal or fish and chips.
