Adele: I keep my awards in the bathroom

Adele wants a special ‘black card’ from chicken restaurant chain Nandos so she can have free food.

Adele keeps her haul of awards in her bathroom to remind her of her hard work every time the singer uses the toilet.

The Hello star has amassed a slew of accolades over the last few years, largely thanks to the success of her 2008 debut 19 and her critically-acclaimed 21 in 2011, and her collection includes Grammy Awards, Brit Awards, an Ivor Novello gong and her coveted Oscar for 2013 Bond theme Skyfall.

She keeps the Academy Award in her bedroom, but reveals all of her other honours decorate her bathroom.

Adele told Britain's The Sun on Sunday newspaper, "I kick myself every day when I go for a poo and see my awards and think, 'Wow, I did good (sic)!' That's the truth."

Despite her huge success, there's still one thing the Rolling in the Deep singer covets - a special 'black card' for chicken restaurant chain Nando's, which entitles the holder to free food. Reports suggest some superstars, including Jay Z and Ed Sheeran, have been given the top secret cards to use at branches in the U.K., and Adele is eager to join the group of VIP customers.

"Nando's do this black card which means you can get a free Nando's wherever you go,” she said. “I haven't got one and haven't ever been given one."

The star is unlikely to approach the company about it on social media though, as she recently revealed that she is no longer allowed to send her own tweets after drunkenly posting messages online in the past.

“I'm not a drinker any more, but when Twitter first came out, I was drunk tweeting and nearly put my foot in it quite a few times, so my management decided you have to go through two people and then it has to be signed off by someone," she explained in a preview of her Adele at the BBC special. "But they are all my tweets, no one writes my tweets, they just post them for me."
