Adele has showed off her incredible 44kg weight loss while praising Beyonce’s new visual album, Black Is King.

"Thank you Queen for always making us all feel so loved through your art,” the Someone Like You hitmaker wrote on Instagram, alongside a photo showing her kneeling underneath a TV.

It’s previously been claimed that Beyonce and Adele "bonded" over their weight loss journeys and sharing fitness tips.

"Beyonce is Adele's ultimate icon and they bonded over their weight loss journeys. She has helped her with her own fitness tips, as well as giving her a different outlook on it all, by teaching her to enjoy the work that she's putting in,” a source told Heat magazine.

“The Oscars were her incentive to work hard, so she could show off the amazing results."

Meanwhile, Adele's former trainer Pete Geracimo previously insisted she never wanted to get "super skinny".

“As Adele's former London-based personal trainer, it's disheartening to read negative commentary and fat-phobic accusations questioning the genuineness of her amazing weight loss,” he wrote.

“In my personal experience of working with her through many highs and lows, she always marched to the beat of her own drum on her own terms. She never undermined her God-given talent in any way.

“She let her incredible voice do the talking, or should I say singing! She never once pretended to be something that she wasn't. What you saw was what you got. And we all LOVED it!

"When Adele and I started our journey together, it was never about getting super skinny. It was about getting her healthy. Especially post pregnancy and post surgery. When 25 dropped and the tour announced, we had to get ready for a 13 month gruelling schedule. In that time, she warmed to training and made better food choices.

“As a result, she lost considerable weight and people took notice. Her body transformation was splashed across every media outlet. The attention it generated was mind-blowing."

Adele embarrassed

A source spoke to Heat magazine and revealed all the attention has been a little overwhelming for Adele since she revealed her incredible weight loss journey on her 32nd birthday in May.

"Adele is finding the attention very embarrassing. She admits that although she may now look the best she ever has, she still gets incredibly self-conscious about her appearance,” the insider said.

"She sometimes finds it hard to believe that she looks as good as people say she does. She says she’s shocked when she looks in the mirror, but she’s really enjoying buying so many new clothes.

"She is having a blast trying things on – from skimpy dresses to statement red-carpet creations. It’s like she’s makng up for lost time, and she’s spent thousands of dollars!"

Adele claims reformer pilates is to thank for her weight loss

Apparently, Adele has a “new lease of life” since starting reformer pilates with her friend, Ayda Field.

In the words of Reese Witherspoon in Legally Blonde, “exercise gives you endorphins, endorphins make you happy” and Adele has certainly looked happy again, after the heartache of her split from her husband back in April.
