Adele finds it difficult to live in UK due to disorder that affects her

Adele finds it difficult to live in UK due to disorder that affects her

The Brit songstress moved across the pond in 2016

When Adele moved across the pond in 2016, us Brits were pretty chuffed for her - although some saw it as another celeb selling out our wet and windy country in favour of basking in the California sunshine.

The London-born songstress has managed to cling onto her accent, but she is fully embracing the Hollywood lifestyle - and with a Las Vegas residency under her belt, why shouldn't she?

There's plenty of opportunity in the States for UK stars to take advantage of - hence why the likes of the Beckhams, Idris Elba, and James Corden hightailed it over there.

But those lot eventually realised there is no place like home and there's nothing like a roast dinner washed down by a cup of tea off your nan.

On the other hand, Adele has zero intention of returning to her British roots and settling down in her hometown of Tottenham, despite 'really missing' London.

The Grammy-winner is very settled in Los Angeles with her fella Rich Paul, where she snapped up a mansion which is reportedly worth $58 million (£46m) last year.

She previously said she 'could never afford' the kind of house she wanted in London, as UK house prices don't have a patch on the deals to be done on the US property market.

However, she is still homesick - and like a lot of us do when we're missing our motherland, she still gets 'very emotional' when she sticks on her hit song 'Hometown Glory'.

"I really miss London, but I miss the London from before all of this happened in my life," Adele told The Hollywood Reporter.

She said she remembered writing the track 'like it was yesterday' and recalled how she was inspired to put pen to paper after attending her first ever protest.

The mum-of-one recalled: "I wrote it the day after I went to my first ever protest. In London, the UK, we were annoyed at Tony Blair because he was going to war with Iraq.

"It was like a million-people turnout in London, and we're marching, and I was 16, and me and my friend Olivia went. We made our placard, and it felt so powerful."

But it isn't the prospect of running into former Prime Minister Blair which is putting her off returning to the UK.

Adele revealed that she suffers from 'really bad seasonal depression', which is soothed by the sunshine in LA.

The condition, known as seasonal affective disorder (SAD), is a type of depression that comes and goes in a seasonal pattern, according to the NHS.

It is sometimes dubbed 'winter depression' because the symptoms are usually more apparent and more severe during the colder, darker months.

Symptoms include a persistent low mood, irritability, feelings of despair, guilt or worthlessness, decreased sex drive, long periods of sleeping, difficulty concentrating gaining weight and withdrawing from social activity.

Adele explained: "So the weather is good for me here. It is strange sometimes, because I'm very British."

The hitmaker said that living in LA has the added bonus of being 'left alone' by paparazzi and the press, while she has been able to forge true friendships with normal people.

She added: "For anyone that has never been to LA, you assume it would be the opposite. But there are so many famous people here that they don't waste their time.

"And I actually have made a lot of really great core friends. I didn’t think I’d ever have a real friend group here. I don’t want a bunch of celebrities being my friends - well, only [celebrities].

"And [my friends are] actually from L.A., which again, before I moved here, I never met one person who was from L.A. They’re not famous and they’re great. And having a kid at school, I’ve got great mum friends. But I do like it."
