Superstar Adele is one of the country's greatest performers and over the past decade has undergone an impressive weighttransformation since she became a household name.
Alongside dropping her hotly anticipated number one album "30" last year the 33-year-old displayed her epic 100 pound weight loss.
The "Easy On Me" set the record straight and revealed that following a divorce, she had been sweating out in the gym over the past couple of years as she had a six-year break from the limelight.
Daily Star looks into her incredible weight loss transformation and how the chart-topping came to have such an astonishing figure.
At the start of her singing career, The Chasing Pavements star admitted she was a "normal" sized 16 and didn't priorities working out.
She said: "I've got a lot of things on my to-do list and that's right at the bottom"
"when I can squeeze in time I don't want to go to the f***ing gym, I want to go the pub with my mates.
"I can't be bothered. It's not even lazy, it's just other things thrill me in life.
In her late twenties, 27-year-old Adele had made the decision to switch up her lifestyle habit and routine.
She welcomed a more balanced diet for the sake of her voice after suffering from a vocal hemorrhage that left her worried.
The Someone Like You singer admitted cutting out alcohol, cigarettes and caffeine as well as any "spicy, citrusy and tangy" food.
Adele then decided she needed to kickstart a lifestyle change ahead of her lengthy 25 album tour.
She started a "13-month grueling schedule" with the support of her PT Pete Garacimo, who quickly set her up with a regime to get her working hard.
Adele said: "I was trying to get some stamina for my tour, so I lost a bit of weight. Now I fit into normal, off-the-shelf clothes, which is a really big problem for me!"
Adele split from her husband Simon Konecki, who shares son Angelo with, officially in 2021 after tying the knot in 2018 following a seven year relationship.
After first getting together in 2011, Adele admitted that she didn't feel happy in her decade-long romance anymore, and said that ending their marriage was "embarrassing".
She told British Vogue: "It just wasn’t right for me anymore. I didn’t want to end up like a lot of other people I knew. It wasn’t miserable miserable, but I would have been miserable had I not put myself first. But, yeah, nothing bad happened or anything like that."
A source also told The Sun that the split fuelled Adele's desire to get healthier, as they said: "“She knows looking good is great revenge."
Adele first starting hitting the headlines after releasing new snaps on her rarely-used social media pages of her enjoying her birthday celebrations.
As she marked her 32nd birthday with close friends, she highlighted her dramatic weight loss in a skimpy black dress and matching heels while posing behind a glamorous flower wheel.
Adele captioned the picture: "Thank you for the birthday love. I hope you’re all staying safe and sane during this crazy time.
"I’d like to thank all of our first responders and essential workers who are keeping us safe while risking their lives! You are truly our angels. 2020 okay bye thanks."
Fans couldn't believe it was her, and it was the first look at her changing her lifestyle and habits.
After splitting up from her husband in 2019, her epic transformation sent shockwaves on social media as she showed off glossy new hair and new curves.
Her iconic SNL debut left fans in wonderstruck by her new slender figure as she appeared on screens, with Adele addressing her weight loss during her hosting stint.
Adele joked: "I know I look really, really different since you last saw me.
"But actually, because of all the Covid restrictions…I had to travel light and I could only bring half of me, and this is the half I chose."
Adele showed off her striking figure in 2021 as she posed in an England football shirt ahead of the Euro finals.
The 33-year-old revealed she had taken up reformer pilates with her friend Ayda Field.
Although Adele has yet to comment on how many stones she's lost, but experts have estimated that Adele has lost around 7 stone in total.
She also confirmed to British Vogue that her weight loss was done steadily, and wasn't any fad dieting, saying: "No intermittent fasting. Nothing. If anything I eat more than I used to because I work out so hard."

Adele opened up that she made the lifestyle change her "anxiety was so terrible" and worked out three times a day.
She said: "Working out, I would just feel better."
"It was never about losing weight, it was always about becoming strong and giving myself as much time every day without my phone. I got quite addicted to it."
"I did it for myself and not anyone else."
She told British Vogue that her weight loss was mostly down to her exercise, saying: " I do my weights in the morning, then I normally hike or I box in the afternoon, and then I go and do my cardio at night."
