How much weight has Adele lost?
Adele is known worldwide for her superstar singing voice.
However, the Someone Like You singer stunned fans when she revealed her incredible weight loss while on holiday with Harry Styles and James Corden.
The star was seen looking noticeably slimmer whilst on a beach in Anguilla.
In August, Adele looked unrecognisable in a Notting Hill Carnival outfit she posted on her instagram.

How did Adele lose weight and what is her diet?
Adele has been trying out The Sirtfood Diet, which encourages slimmers to eat plant foods such as kale and buckwheat.
These foods, known as sirtuin activators, suppress appetite and activate the body's "skinny gene".
The diet allows slimmers to eat dark chocolate and drink red wine, as they are high in sirtuins.
Adele is also said to have taken up reformer pilates with pal Ayda Field.
The former X Factor judge, 40, introduced Adele to pilates instructor Camila Goodis, 36, who laid on joint workouts for the pair at Robbie’s LA home.
But Brazilian Camila has told how Adele hates exercise and believes her recent body transformation is down to “90 per cent dieting”.
“I don’t believe she liked exercise much but she has changed her lifestyle and I believe that 90 per cent was dieting.”
She said Adele is not one of her current clients but believes the secret to her weight loss is giving up processed food, sugar and fizzy drinks.
She suggested it was down to “a healthy balanced diet, eating less calories a day and expending more energy”.Adele shot to fame in 2009Credit: Getty - Contributor
Is hypnotherapy the secret to Adele's dramatic weight loss?
She has been linked to other celebrity clients and is known for being discreet and refuses to disclose who she works with.
The hypnotherapist declined to comment when asked if she is working with the Grammy award winner, but did say she has helped many clients not only lose lots of weight, but also keep it off.
She said to The Telegraph: “It’s not a diet,” she stresses. “I change [my clients’] mindset, to help boost their confidence and self-esteem. They just lose the emotional hole that makes them think of food the whole time.”
The former nurse from Yorkshire charges £295 per session and described the process she uses to change her client's way of thinking.2 Adele on the Red Carpet at The 59th Annual Grammy AwardsCredit: Getty - Contributor
What has Adele previously said about her weight?
Shedding the pounds has never been a priority for Adele before, who has always insisted that she isn't at all "insecure" about her appearance after shooting to fame in 2008.
She even revealed that she'd refuse to work with anybody who had an issue with her size, telling People magazine at the time: "Even when I was signing a contract, most of the industry knew if anyone ever dared say: 'Lose weight' to me, they wouldn’t be working with me."
She showed similar spirit in 2009, telling the Daily Mail: "I can’t be a product; no one can do that to me. I have all the say; I have power over everything I do."
In 2012, Chanel's Karl Lagerfeld blasted Adele as "a little too fat", with the defiant singer replying at the time that she is "very proud" of her appearance, adding: "Weight has nothing to do with my career."Adele's transformation was first revealed back in October 2019Credit: The Mega Agency ©2020 The Sun
