Adele has shown just how much she loves one of her music heroes, George Michael.
Dockrill celebrated Adele's 33rd birthday today (May 5) by posting the photo, along with the caption: "Make sure you BFF with someone that also goes to fancy dress parties not dressed as a sexy cat. Fulfil the brief. Nail the assignment. I love you so much happy birthday."

Adele famously hugged George Michael as he handed her the Brit Award for Best Album back in 2012.
She later performed a tribute at the Grammy Awards in 2017 a few months after his death, however she was so heartbroken when starting to sing a stripped-back version of 'Fastlove'.
She said on stage: "I'm sorry for swearing and I'm sorry for starting again. I can't mess this up for him. I'm sorry, I can't."
She added: "When the video came out for that, I was blown away by how f****ing hot he was. It's actually quite exceptional how good-looking he was."
Adele later spoke about the moment she learnt of his death, saying: "I actually had to go for a walk on my own and just breathe for a while."
The British singer is currently working on her long-awaited follow-up album to 25, with fans hoping it will be released at some point this year.
