ADELE has confirmed that she is single after being romantically linked to grime artist Skepta.
The 32-year-old star jokingly called herself a "single cat lady" as she thanked fans for their support following her appearance on Saturday Night Live at the weekend.
Sharing a photo of herself smiling while on the US comedy show, the singer also announced that she wouldn't be back in the public eye until next year.
She captioned the post: "Had the best time on SNL! Thank you to the most wonderful cast, crew, writers and producers.
"What a sublime bunch of people you are. Lorne thank you for believing in me! Lindsay my sister for life, Maya my comedy and Mama hero!
"Plus the so up for it audiences at both the dress rehearsal and live show! I did it for the joy of it and I hope you got some from it too!
"Good luck with the election America I love you so much. Look after each other and go easy on yourselves."
Adele then made some casual revelations as she added: "Happy Halloween! I’m going back to my cave now to be the (single) cat lady that I am! Peace out til next year ♥️"
Her lengthy break will come as a disappointment to fans, who'd hoped that her appearance on SNL was a hint that her much-anticipated new album would be released imminently.
Following her divorce from husband Simon Konecki last year, rumours have swirled that Adele is dating Skepta – with the pair spotted on a string of dates.
He also joined her for her birthday celebrations, and Adele introduced him to her long-term pal James Corden at the time.
Adele and Skepta first started speaking in 2016 after she tweeted a supportive message to him because they both reign from Tottenham – with the grime star admitting at the time it "was one of the sickest things ever"
The mother-of-one poked fun at her love life in a skit on Saturday Night Live, joking that she'd sign up to Love Island or US series The Bachelor.
She told viewers: "Hi, I'm Adele Adkins and I'm 32. You may know me for being the singer Adele.
"I'm here because I've had a lot of heartbreak in my life – first at 19 and then, sort of famously, at 21 and then, even more famously, at 25," she joked, referencing the titles of her first three albums.
"I have a really good feeling about [The Bachelor] Ben. It's only night one, but I can already tell he's going to be the next love of my life."
The sketch saw Adele attempt to lure Ben away from the other female contestants by bursting into her hit songs such as Hello and Someone Like You.
Adele also referenced her impressive seven-stone weight loss, wowing in a stunning black embellished gown that drew attention to her slim waist.
She joked: "I know I look 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.”
Adele made three major changes to her lifestyle to overhaul her image, including ditching cigarettes and caffeine.
She first debuted her incredible weight loss at Drake's birthday party in October last year, just weeks after she filed for divorce
A source previously told The Sun that Adele had been "secretly working" with personal trainers.
They added: "She’s not the sort to exercise in front of others, so she follows regimes and plans at home, using their videos and tutorials."
