Adele has hosted Saturday Night Live for the first time and spoke of her recent weight loss almost immediately.

During her opening monologue, the 32-year-old said, "I know I look really, really different since you last saw me".

"But actually, because of all the Covid restrictions...I had to travel light and I could only bring half of me," she joked. "And this is the half I chose."

The singer, who is thought to have lost around 40 pounds, revealed her transformation back in May in a Instagram post that went viral. The mum-of-one didn’t comment on her weight loss at the time but fans noticed her slimmed down figure by the picture which showed her in an incredible black puff-sleeve mini dress by Elzinga.

Adele last appeared on SNL back in 2008, in an episode hosted by Josh Brolin.

At the time she had just released her first album, 19.

“It's me, Adele, and my God, I'm absolutely thrilled to finally be hosting this show,” she said.

“A show that not only do I genuinely love, but the show that broke my career here in America 12 very long years ago.

“See, I was a musical guest back in 2008 when Sarah Palin came on with Ms Tina Fey.

“So obviously a few million people tuned in to watch it and the rest is history.”

Addressing the long looming question of when she'll release new music, sadly the singer did disappoint by confirming that she didn’t want to be a musical act on the show because her album is not yet finished. Instead the host said she’d rather “have a glass of wine or six and see what happens”.
