The internet went a little wild this week when it looked like that Adele might be back on the dating scene. Could there be a new man in the 21 singer’s life? Rumours started flying when she was pictured holding hands with a mystery gent at the Celine Dion concert at British Summer Time in Hyde Park.

But the questions around her companion’s identity has now been answered – he’s Alan Carr’s husband, Paul Drayton!

The chatshow host took to Twitter to comment on the news stories this morning, posting an image with the caption “Adele’s new man is well fit.”

Carr’s fans and followers were quick to get the joke.

“Nice of you to loan him out,” said one. While another asked, “Are you renting him out? Is it just A list celebrities tho? As I may need at hand hold at Barbra on Sunday.

Adele is closer friends with Carr and Drayton – in fact she officiated at their wedding back in January 2018.

The singer does like to get involved when upcoming nuptials are on the cards. This week, the news broke that she is currently planning a second bachelorette party for friend Jennifer Lawrence. The Hunger Games actress announced her engagement to art dealer Cooke Maroney at the start of the year. But recently revealed that the attendance numbers were low when she threw a last-minute hen party.

Now Adele is out to fix that. With invitations currently being sent out according to a story in The Sun.

The Tottenham singer turned 31 at the beginning of May. At the time she said, “ I’ve changed drastically in the last couple years and I’m still changing and that’s okay. 31 is going to be a big ol’ year and I’m going to spend it all on myself. For the first time in a decade I’m ready to feel the world around me and look up for once.”
