Adele has been keeping a low profile in recent months, since announcing she was pregnant with her first child.

Despite giving birth to a son in October, the songstress has not been seen out in public since and has avoided any celebrity events.

Meanwhile fellow Brit Daniel Day-Lewis leads acting hopes at the Oscars after he was nominated for best actor in US historical drama Lincoln.

A win would make it his THIRD best actor Oscar win for the British-born star.
