Adele Adkins’ journey from born and bred Londoner to monomynous megastar is astonishing even by musical hall of fame standards. Brought up by her mum mostly in south London, she began singing when she was just four years old. By the time she turned 18, she had graduated from the prestigious Brit School (which had already helped launch music careers for the likes of Amy Winehouse) and bagged herself a record deal with XL Recordings, the record company behind everyone from FKA twigs to The xx. Fast forward just over a decade, and the singer has topped charts in countries around the world, headlined Glastonbury and received an MBE for services to music.
