Let us count the ways!
1. She’s from Tottenham!
2. She uses a flip phone in her new video
3. She’s 27 (not 25)!
4. She’s the only person to write a major hit about West Norwood (‘Hometown Glory’)

8. Her partner is an Old Etonian who wants to save the world
9. She won an Ivor Novello for ‘Rolling in The Deep’
10. Celine Dion did a cover of ‘Rolling In The Deep’
11. “She’s a fantastic songwriter… I told her ‘you’re going to be me in 40 years, you’re going to still be up onstage doing what you’re doing because of your songwriting” – Stevie Nicks
12. She’s constantly working for charity…
13. …But refused to do Live Aid as it was too contrived
14. She’s understated about what she earns
15. Despite being flush with praise from celebrities, she’s still modest

17. Never goes too crazy with her outfits – it’s always various shades of black
18. She’s outsold Rihanna, Katy Perry and Lady Gaga

22. She bought a house for her mum to say “thank you”
23. She has an enviously great volume of beautiful hair
24. She has something not many have: True Sass
25. Her voice is one of the most powerful, poignant, beautiful things we’ve ever heard! Hoorah that she’s returned!
