Adele made an appearance at Grenfell Tower on Wednesday evening, less than 24 hours after a horrific blaze devastated the building, killing and injuring hundreds of residents.

According to the Mail Online, Tottenham-native Adele made a stealth appearance at the vigil being held to support victims and survivors, as a number of Twitter users, including @FourMee shared images of the star at the scene where she was emotional and reportedly 'hugged and comforted' victims.

12 people are known to have died after fire engulfed Grenfell Tower in White City after 1am - but Scotland Yard expects the death toll to rise and some claim the actual number could be over 50.

With a number of stars donating to the fund and promoting the services offered to victims, Adele is in a minority in actually heading to the site to support those present. One Adele fan account, claimed she was offering support to those in need, penning: "Adele was going around and hugging everyone she could to comfort them".

Other Twitter users who discovered Adele's attendance quickly penned: "I'm so proud stunning a humble & genuine human being like you. i love you so much, queen Adele...

"The fact that Adele has gone to Grenfell tower and not said a word about it just proves how amazingly sincere she is... Adele is an angel, she deserves heaven, biggest heart ever, so proud of her."

In March, Adele lamented not being in her hometown following the terror attack in Westminster which saw five people killed and 40 injured, when a the rampaging terrorist fatally stabbed a police officer before being shot dead by guards.

Performing in Auckland, she said: "Today there was a terror attack in my hometown of London. I'm literally on the other side of the world and I want them to see our lights and to hear us.

"It's very strange not being home, all I want to do today is be at home with my friends and family. All of them are fine but there are four people the death count was four at the time who aren't fine so let's dedicate this to them tonight."
