Adele has reportedly splashed out on two Andy Warhol prints for her new home.

The Rolling In The Deep singer, who lives on the south coast, bought the pop art icon's rare butterfly canvases to hang in her house and had them delivered last month, according to The Sun.

A source told the newspaper: "They're Warhol fans and the butterfly works are good investments as well.

"The Warhols have already been hung in pride of place on the walls of the living room at the huge house.

"The couple have been kitting out the place now they are back from LA with baby Angelo."

Apparently they are just the start of Grammy-winning Adele's art collection.

She and partner Simon Konecki are planning on investing in more paintings for their new place.

The Sun's source said: "The couple are hoping to get more contemporary art for the walls to add to their collection, including paintings by Damien Hirst and Banksy."

Last month Adele also spent more than £15,000 on retro arcade games including Pac-Man, Space Invaders, two pinball machines and a shoot 'em up with two guns.

Adele and Simon had been planning a Bermuda shorts-themed housewarming party for Easter weekend but have had to postpone because of the chilly weather.
