Adele has marked the 10th anniversary of her award-winning album 21.

The London-born star, 32, released her second studio album on January 24 2011, producing hits including Rolling In The Deep, Someone Like You, Set Fire To The Rain and Rumour Has It.

The album, whose title comes from her age at the time of production, won the 2012 album of the year Grammy and the Brit award for British album of the year.

She wrote: “Well I never! Happy 10 years old friend!

“It’s crazy how little I remember of what it was like and how I felt a decade ago.

“But Thank You from the bottom of my heart for letting us into your lives and letting me be a soundtrack to some of it x.”

The musician has not released an album since 2015’s 25 but she has confirmed she is working on a new record.

Hosting Saturday Night Live in October 2020, she revealed why she was only on hosting duties, with singer-songwriter HER appearing as musical guest.

She said: “My album is not finished and I’m also too scared to do both. I would rather just put on some wigs – and this is all mine by the way – have a glass of wine or six and just see what happens.”

She also addressed her recent weight loss, saying “And I know I look really, really different since you last saw me but actually, because of all the Covid restrictions and the travel bans, I had to travel light and only bring half of me – and this is the half I chose.”

Earlier this week it was revealed she has reached a divorce settlement with estranged husband Simon Konecki, almost two years after they separated.

They married in 2016 and Adele filed for divorce in September 2019 in Los Angeles, and court records show she filed a judgment packet earlier this month.

The former couple will officially be divorced when a judge signs off the agreement.

Adele and Konecki began dating in 2011 and welcomed their son, Angelo, in 2012.

Adele cited irreconcilable differences when they split and both parties wanted joint custody of Angelo.

The initial filing revealed separation of assets and properties would be decided through mediation and details have not been made public.
