Following her throat operation last autumn, Adele's figure became slimmer and when she tweeted a picture of herself on one of her first public outings back in December, her face was trimmer.

The singer burst onto the music scene back in 2008 and since then her weight has gradually decreased, but over recent months the change has been more noticeable.

So what is the secret behind Adele's weight loss, is it a crazy new diet regime?

Apparently not.

Adele's good friend Alan Carr told heat magazine: "The only reason she's lost all that weight is because she's stopped drinking. She's not on any diets. She had Chicken McNuggets at mine the other night."

So why is Adele off the booze, Al?

"She's just not drinking because of her throat. It's a bit boring, to be honest. It's like having Sister Wendy or a monk round. I love a nice glass of red, but she's like, 'Oh no, I'll just have a cuppa.'"

Alan Carr also chatted about Adele's love of his pet pooch Bev while he posed with his Irish setter Joyce.

He said: "On the backstage passes for Adele's last tour there was a photo of Adele and Bev kissing. There was a photo of Bev projected on the backdrop at her concerts, too. She's more famous than I am."

It would be pretty easy for Adele to become a massive diva following all her success, but Alan Carr insists the singer is down to earth and normal, and is in fact the "least showbizzy" person he knows.

We want to be in their gang.
