Madonna has told ITV1's Daybreak that she hasn't got round to watching One Direction yet - and actually isn't too sure who they are.

During the interview which will be shown Daybreak and Lorraine tomorrow as part of 'Madonna morning' the singer responded by saying:

That's a pop group, right? Sorry... I haven't seen them yet, no, sorry. Slap my hand.

However she did admit to being a big fan of another British success story, Adele.

Madonna said she wanted to work with Adele:

I would love to. I would love to meet her, I think she's brilliant, I love her.

She ruled out the idea of judging a TV talent contest:

I haven't really thought about it to tell you truth and I've never actually seen any of those shows - I don't watch television. And the contests, well everybody's a bit contest obsessed. I don't actually like the idea of being a judge. It's so subjective - like what's good and what isn't?"
