Adele is one of the most talked-about women in the world, from her reported befriending of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle since their move to Los Angeles to her love life, with speculation spreading last year that she may have been dating Skepta following her divorce from charity CEO Simon Konecki.

Undoubtedly, the biggest talking point around Adele has been her weight loss, with the award-winning singer reportedly losing 7 stone.

Every time the singer is photographed, the Sirtfood Diet goes viral, with the regime thought to be responsible for the weight loss.

This week was no exception, as Adele posted stunning new never-before-seen photographs to social media to mark her 33rd birthday.

‘I love you. That’s all,' commented Mille Bobby Brown, while Ella Henderson posted: 'So pretty'.

John Legend was one of the first to with she singer a ‘Happy Birthday', while Ellen DeGeneres posted: 'I hope that’s the name of your next album.'

Happy birthday Adele!
