I need one Adele of a fella to love; STILL NOT OVER OLD FLAME HOPEFULLY.

Byline: Clemmie Moodie; Sarah Tetteh; Ashleigh Rainbird

HOPEFULLY, lovelorn Adele will find Someone Like You one day - if she ever gets over her ex...

In her most revealing chat to date, the 23-year-old singer reveals she can't "be without" the unnamed ex who inspired that hit, and would "do anything to be with him".

In fact, she says it's hard to perform her most heartfelt songs, because the lyrics remind her of that once "brilliant" but "tragic" romance.

Adele wrote her multiplatinum selling album, 21, about the messy break-up from her mystery ex, believed to be the ridiculously named musician Slinky Sunbeam, whom she dated in 2008.

She says: "It's bittersweet because I wouldn't give up this success for anything.

"But at the same time, I'd do anything to be with him.

"I miss him." She wrote the song Rolling in the Deep after a particularly vicious row in which her ex called her "needy". The single went platinum five times in the US - which is a pretty decent retort.

Bizarrely, although she can write songs which tap into the mindset of the heartbroken, Adele says she has problems opening up and articulating her own emotions.

She also tells Cosmopolitan magazine: "It's so hard for me to share my feelings.

"I've actually never told a guy I loved him."

After a pal told her off about that, she has since written to all her exes, letting them know she did kinda, sorta like them, once. (Except the one she swore at)

At the moment men are the last thing on he en are her mind. She is about to have throat surgery, after suffering a nasty chest infection then a vocal cord haemorrhage.

It meant she had to scrap her planned live dates."I'm fed up with the lot of them - it's just me and Louis," she says, referring to her pet dachshund. "I'd like to get married one day. But he'd have to sign a pre-nup... Can you imagine?"

No, I can't. But I hope Mr Right is braced for the album their relationship will no doubt spawn.
