Adele marked her 31st birthday with an emotional message about moving on after a trying year.

The singer - who announced last month that she and husband Simon Konecki had separated - turned 31 on Sunday.

She said on Instagram: "This is 31...thank f****** god.

"30 tried me so hard but I'm owning it and trying my hardest to lean in to it all.

"No matter how long we're here for life is constant and complicated at times.

"I've changed drastically in the last couple years and I'm still changing and that's okay."

She continued: "31 is going to be a big ol' year and I'm going to spend it all on myself.

"For the first time in a decade I'm ready to feel the world around me and look up for once.

"Be kind to yourself people we're only human, go slow, put your phone down and laugh out loud at every opportunity.

"Learning to REALLY truly love yourself is it, and I've only just realized that that is more than enough.

"I'll learn to love you lot eventually. Bunch of f****** savages, 30 will be a drum n bass record to spite you.

"Chin up eh."
