Adele's 2012 just keeps getting better - the singer has overtaken rock legends Pink Floyd on the U.K.'s all-time album sales list.

21 has sold over 4.14 million copies in the U.K. and is now just 12,000 sales behind Dire Straits' Brothers in Arms at six.
But she still has some way to go to topple Queen's Greatest Hits as the top-selling U.K. album of all time, according to - it holds the number one spot with 5.83 million sales - 800,000 more than second placed Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band by The Beatles.
