Adele has reportedly been approached by Netflix for a rumoured multi-million-pound documentary that would chart her recent comeback.

If green-lit, the docufilm is said to centre on the singer’s upcoming BST Hyde Park gigs next July, which will mark her first public UK shows since 2017.

A source told The Sun‘s Bizarre column: “Adele is the most in-demand woman of the moment and Netflix thinks it could create something really special with her.

“Her team have been app­r­oached about a possible multi-million-pound film that would chart her comeback and huge BST shows next July,” the source claimed.

They added: “At the moment any plans for a world tour are on ice because of COVID and this film could bring Adele live closer to fans who weren’t able to get tickets.”

It’s not known at this stage if the rumoured documentary film is going ahead or if Adele is considering giving it the go-ahead.

In other news, Adele’s new album ‘30‘ became the biggest selling album of the year in the US just three days after its release.

The singer’s long-awaited fourth album arrived last week (November 19), and immediately broke records with hundreds of thousands of copies sold.

According to Billboard, more than 500,000 copies of Adele‘s new album were sold between its release date last Friday and Sunday (November 21), taking it past the record set by Taylor Swift‘s ‘Evermore’, which has sold 462,000 this year despite being released in December 2020, as well as the singer’s new album, ‘Red (Taylor’s Version)’, which has sold 369,000 copies so far.

Largely written in response to her divorce from her husband of three years, Simon Konecki, Adele’s ’30’ has been hailed as her “best album yet” by fans.

In a four-star review of the album, Rolling Stone UK said: “While 30 is not Adele’s purest moment, and fans of her first two albums will miss the irreverence and wit that we know from her television interviews, this is by far her most heartrendingly honest work to date, and that will be more than enough to continue Adele’s dominance as one of the world’s greatest artists.”
