The London-born star turned up unannounced at a vigil to remember those who have been killed so far by the fire.

Adele has paid an emotional visit to Grenfell Tower in London after a fire tore apart the building, killing and injuring several residents on Wednesday (14th June).

The 29-year-old singer and her husband Simon Konecki were spotted at a vigil being held to remember the victims.

Fans on Twitter reported that the 'Hello' singer was "hugging everyone" and doing her best to “comfort them”.

The fire was caused when a faulty fridge exploded inside the 27-storey apartment building and set the entire block ablaze in just 15 minutes.

It isn’t the first time Adele has shown her respect after tragedy has struck London, as back in March she told fans in Auckland that she wanted to be at home after the Westminster terror attack.

She said at the time: “Today there was a terror attack in my hometown of London. I’m literally on the other side of the world and I want them to see our lights and to hear us.

“It’s very strange not being home, all I want to do today is be at home with my friends and family. All of them are fine but there are four people the death count was four at the time who aren’t fine so let’s dedicate this to them tonight.”

Adele is currently preparing for the finale of her world tour which ends with four shows at Wembley Stadium, London.
