Adele has shared a rare photo of herself as she celebrated her 32nd birthday in lockdown.
The singer’s message of support thanked fans for sending birthday wishes, as she hoped all her followers were “staying safe and sane”.
Adele wrote: “Thank you for the birthday love. I hope you’re all staying safe and sane during this crazy time.
“I’d like to thank all of our first responders and essential workers who are keeping us safe while risking their lives!
“You are truly our angels. 2020 okay bye thanks x.”
The post, which is her first since Christmas, began trending worldwide after she shared it to her 33.8 million instagram followers.

The picture shows the happy star standing behind a giant floral wreath while outside, with a laptop also in shot.
Adele was expected to release her fourth album towards the end of 2020, but those plans are now believed to be on hold.
Fans are beginning to doubt the release after Adele commented on an Instagram Live battle between music producers Babyface and Teddy Riley.
