Singer Adele has confirmed she is married to long-term partner Simon Konecki.

The star, 28, spoke about her relationship with Konecki, 42, while performing on stage in Brisbane, Australia.

Talking about her hit track Someone Like You, she told fans: "I was trying to remember how it was I felt at the beginning of the relationship that inspired that record.

"Because as bad as a break-up can be and as bitter and horrible and messy as it can be, that feeling when you first fall for someone is the best feeling on earth, and I am addicted to that feeling.

"Obviously, I can't go through with those feelings because I'm married now."

She added: "I've found my next person but you know that feeling when everything about you feels alive for the first time."

The star and Konecki have been together since 2011 and have a four-year-old son, Angelo.

In January, the Hello singer was photographed wearing a gold band on her ring finger.

She sparked questions about whether she had wed when she thanked her "husband" at the Grammys.
