And last week the singer’s makeup artist further fuelled the comeback rumours.

Taking to Instagram Stories, Michael Ashton shared a picture of the 15-time Grammy Award winner doing her makeup in the mirror while seemingly on FaceTime to him in what looks like preparation for a photo shoot.

He wrote alongside it: “BTW… exciting news coming soon!! “Get ready to get on board.”

Two days later the picture of Adele with her supposed new ‘do emerged on Instagram and fans weren’t sure what to think.

“This can’t be real, really suits her though,” one fan commented, as another replied: “A KStew [Kristen Stewart] Barnett looks good on her!”
