A source told Heat magazine: “She’s constantly in front of cameras, talking about her divorce, her life in LA, and her son. As a private person, it’s causing her anxiety to go through the roof.”

Fortunately, Adele has a top end personal trainer to work with her at any time of the day – with the source claiming it is the “only” thing that clams her down.

They claim: “She’ll hit the gym at 5am, lifting weights, doing circuit training, and other high-intensity workouts. She always feels a lot calmer afterwards.

“Her friends worry that she goes a bit overboard sometimes, and even A-list pals like Jennifer Lawrence and Nicole Richie say they can’t keep up! But right now, exercise is stopping her anxiety spiking, as well as keeping her healthy.”

The source added: “Fitness has changed her life and made her feel even more confident.”

Adele’s anxiety over her new music has been in vain, however, as the new record has been a hit with critics and has smashed expectation by becoming the biggest selling album of the year – in just three days.

Despite the very LA lifestyle, Adele has tried to convince fans that she is as down to earth as ever.

She said in an interview last month that she treats herself to fast food every week – telling Vogue: "My ideal meal, my death row meal, my last meal would be a McChicken nugget with a Big Mac and then fries.

"That's my three course. I eat it at least once a week."

Meanwhile, Adele helped promote her new album with a performance in front of a star studded audience that saw close friends Naomi Campbell, Stomzy, Alan Carr and Emma’s Thompson and Watson given priority seating at the televised concert.

The show was filmed at London’s intimate Palladium theatre earlier this month – and aired on ITV on Sunday night to rapturous applause from fans.

Fans took to Twitter minutes into the televised version of the event to say they were shedding tears of joy seeing the star back in the spotlight – with one fan tweeting: "Four bars of Hometown Glory and I’m sobbing."

A second penned: "Opening with 'Hometown Glory' had me crying immediately! She really is the best."
