Adele - Adele Is Dating Swampy

Adele's new boyfriend used to be nicknamed Swampy.

The 'Someone Like You' hitmaker has been seen getting close to Simon Konecki, boss of water charity Drop4Drop, who recently admitted he was given the same name as the infamous eco warrior, because of his hippy like appearance.

He told The Grocer magazine: "When I was in the City they used to call me Swampy, after that kid who tunnelled under Manchester Airport runway. Probably due to my long hair and Leftie views."

Bearded Simon, 36, has been spotted on holiday with Adele at the Everglades National Park near Miami, where they went on an alligator spotting tour on an airboat earlier this week.

The 23-year-old singer has previously admitted her biggest hits were inspired by her break-up from her last boyfriend, and she felt like her "world had ended" when she discovered he was getting married.

She said: "I wrote 'Someone Like You' when I had a cold and was sitting on my bed waiting for my bath to run.

"I got a text from one of our mutual friends saying, 'He's found someone else and they're engaged.'

"I thought the world had ended and I was going to sit in my dark flat forever and my dog was going to eat me."

Adele is currently recovering from an operation on her throat and is expected to return to performing in the next couple of months.
