Adele's bat attack

Adele was left terrified when a bat attacked a crowd member during her latest show.

The 28-year-old star couldn't believe her eyes when one of the webbed mammals dove down and pounced on one of the audience members after she performed 'Don't You Remember' at the Palacio de los Deportes in Mexico City, Mexico on Monday (14.11.16).

The panicked star shrieked: "Is that a f***ing bat? Oh my God! There's a f***ing bat! It landed right on your head! Welcome to Mexico. It's really good to be here - but a f***ing bat?"

Fortunately, Adele - who has four-year-old son Angelo with partner Simon Konecki, 42 - calmed down enough to recount a story of when a bat flew into her house, leaving her equally as terrified.

According to The Sun newspaper, she told her fans: "One time a bat got into my house. I was on my own, it was very scary."

The star has one more show left on the current leg of her 112-date 'Adele Live 2016' tour in Phoenix in the US on November 21, and she has recently added five more dates in Australia for next year.

However, Adele might have to look out for more bats Down Under as they are around 75 species in Australia.

In June, it was reported Aussie coastal town Batemans Bay had been taken over by tens of thousands of large bats - 140,000 of the mammals were there in April - robbing locals of their sleep and taking down electricity.

The New South Wales town is near Melbourne, where Adele will conclude her tour and final date in Australia.
