He wrote: "Not everyday the wonderfully grounded and caring Adele pops into Chelsea Fire Station for a cup of tea and a cuddle."

It comes after Chelsea firefighters left one of their team shirts at the scene of the tragic incident, writing on it: "Our hearts go out to everyone touched by this tragedy. We did our best, I promise!"

Whilst another firefighter, wrote: "Forever in our thoughts, so sorry we couldn't get to all of you."

The shirt has since been written on by grateful residents, who wrote messages of support all over it. Many called the firefighters "heroes" and offered their blessings to the team.
