The Rolling In The Deep singer, who has shunned the publicity in recent months, channeled George Michael as she marked turning another year older.

The mother-of-one took to Twitter to share her costume, telling fans she dressed as her "hero".

The global chart topper dressed up as the 80s superstar in his trademark black leather jacket, a white tshirt and aviator sunglasses.

"Happy Birthday @OfficialAdele !!!" he wrote. "I'm so flattered, love The Singing Greek! xxx."

Aside from today's post, Adele has been reluctant to keep her 22 million Twitter fans up to date.

Apart from two brief updates in March, the last time she spoke directly to fans was in December, when she slammed reports that her relationship with Simon Konecki was on the rocks.

"Just wanted to wish everyone happy holidays & all the best for 2015! PS Simon & I are still very much together, don't believe what you read x," she wrote at the time.

Adele's third studio album is due for release this autumn.
