    Do we need to remind you why Adele is our spirit animal?

    Okay, fine. Not only has she been working so hard this year that she’s managed to nab herself the title of richest British musician under 30, she’s also not afraid to tell her security staff off mid-gig when they stop people from dancing, she sent Harry Styles the most ridiculous/hilarious gift for his 21st birthday, and she’s raising her son to be a feminist.

    So it’s fair to say she’s just all-around wonderful and the one celebrity who we desperately want to be best friends with.

    The Tottenham-born singer has changed a lot over the years. She’s swapped side buns for bouffants then bobs, she adopted the kind of perfectly winged eyeliner that we can only dream of, and her incredible dresses kill it. Every. Single. Time.

    But one difference her loyal fans have noticed is how much weight she has lost. Despite her reluctance to talk about her body, the 28 year-old is rumoured to have lost 50 pounds since she sang her way into our heats with Hometown back in 2007.

    Adele has briefly addressed the issue and revealed that as well as small changes to her exercise routine and diet, she has cut out just one thing.

    getting ready…

    A post shared by Adele (@adele) on

    ‘I used to drink ten cups [of tea] a day with two sugars in each so I was on 20 sugars a day,’ she admitted.

    ‘Now I don’t drink tea anymore and I have more energy than ever.’

    But if you think that Adele has lost weight to suit everyone else, think again. She previously spoke out about why she won’t entertain body woes, saying: ‘Be happy and healthy.

    ‘I’ve never had a problem with the way I look. I’d rather have lunch with my friends than go to a gym.

    ‘I enjoy being me; I always have done. I’ve seen people where it rules their lives, you know, who want to be thinner or have bigger boobs, and it wears them down. And I don’t want that in my life.’
