Adele knows what she wants, what she really, really wants

Award-winning singer/songwriter Adele has revealed her first musical love - the Spice Girls.

The original girl band had quite an influence on the 22-year-old's career and she's adored them since she was 7.

'Even though some people think they're uncool, I'll never be ashamed to say I love the Spice Girls because they made me who I am,' Adele admits.

'I'm deadly serious about that.

'I got into music right in their prime when they were huge.'

Adele was thrilled that she had the opportunity to revisit her youth when the girls reformed in 2007.

'I went to their comeback gig and it was amazing,' she says.

'I loved it! Seeing them was just like being a little kid again.'
