Adele may be famous for her heartbreaking love songs, but when it comes to her longtime love of five years she’s more guarded. And it appears the 28-year-old been hiding some HUGE news…
The Hello singer first set rumours swirling in December that she tied the knot in a secret ceremony with her partner Simon Konecki, after she was spotted with a gold ring on her wedding finger. Konecki, 42, has also been pictured recently wearing what appears to be a band on his wedding ring finger too.
When pressed for confirmation, both their reps had ‘no comment’. Although don’t hold your breath on an announcement from either camp anytime soon – who share a 4-year-old son Angelo – the pair reportedly got ‘secretly’ engaged in October.
One of these blonde beauties is 45 and the other two are 21 and 19 – but can you tell which is which?
Mum Natalie Wardell says she is regularly mistaken for being the same age as daughters Jazmyne, 21 and Tamika, 19 – and sometimes people even think she’s the younger one. Natalie says the pretty trio are more like best friends, regularly partying together at festivals and clubs.
Mum Natalie is in the middle of the photo above. “Some even think Jazmyne is my mum because she’s so tall and I’m so short,” Natalie said. “I guess it’s a compliment to me, but people will say things like ‘You try to copy them,’ but I mean I’ve had long blonde hair since I was 15. It’s just genetics.”

A convicted murderer who beheaded a woman in Holland after allegedly watching Taliban videos was allowed into the UK without any checks – where he then attacked two police officers with a hammer. Savage Jamshid Piruz found himself free to wander into the UK unchallenged despite having served seven years in Holland for slaughtering his female tenant and hacking her head off.
Piruz attacked his terrified Chinese tennant in the Dutch city of Almere in 2006 and a year later was caged for a minimum of 12 years for the murder. He was released in 2014 having served just seven years and as he is a permanent Dutch resident, was free to travel throughout the EU and arrived in the UK where he assaulted a member of staff at Gatwick Airport, but was released onto the UK streets by magistrates.
Just a few days later, on January 7 last year, police were called to investigate a burglary in Crawley, West Sussex, where they met with Piruz who launched into a frenzied attack on the pair. He battered both PC Jessica Chick and PC Stewart Young with a hammer before the pair managed to subdue him. Piruz pleaded guilty at Hove Crown Court to two counts of attempting to cause grievous bodily harm with intent, burglary and affray and will be sentenced on Friday.
Letters sent by Diana, Princess of Wales to a Buckingham Palace head steward reveal that Prince Harry was “constantly in trouble” at boarding school. Diana sent the six handwritten notes – which are expected to sell for thousands of pounds at auction – to Cyril Dickman in the 1980s and 90s.
In one of them, sent five days after Harry’s birth in September 1984, Diana said it had been a “particularly happy time”. She added: “William adores his little brother and spends the entire time swamping Harry with an endless supply of hugs and kisses, hardly letting the parents near!”
In another letter, sent in October 1992, Diana said: “The boys are well and enjoying boarding school a lot, although Harry is constantly in trouble!” After the death of her father in the same year, Diana tells Mr Dickman: “Thank you for thinking of us at this sad and difficult time… I miss my Father dreadfully.”
A mother and father have been found dead beside their car as their three young sons sat unharmed inside the vehicle. Police are treating the deaths of Daniel Kelsey, 32, and Heather Kelsey, 30, as unexplained but non-suspicious.
Devastated friends said the Kelseys had been “doing great” recently and have been left utterly shocked by the tragedy. Officers in Florida had been alerted to their family car early on Saturday morning, after it was spotted parked on a highway with the hazard lights on.
When officers arrived, they found Daniel and Heather unconscious on an embankment by the side of the road. Three boys, ranging in age from eight months to four-years-old, were in the car unharmed. Their parents were rushed to hospital but could not be revived. A post-mortem is being carried out to establish the cause of death.

A never-before-heard song written and recorded by George Michael before his death has been leaked on Twitter – by George’s own partner, Fadi Fawaz. The pop star, who died on Christmas Day 2016 of heart failure, had written and recorded This Kind Of Love in the 1990s, but the track had never seen the light of day because of legal red tape.
It had been produced in partnership with Elton John in 1991 and is thought to be included on George’s unreleased album Trojan Horse. Tweeting a link to the song, Fadi captioned it simply: “My Baby.”
Fadi, 43, was heartbroken to discover a lifeless George in bed at home on Sunday 25th December. He later told his followers: “ITs a xmas i will never forget finding your partner dead peacefully in bed first thing in the morning.. I will never stop missing you xx.”
