“It’s for those in need only xxx” Robert replied.

“Lockdown has not been kind to me,” the doc said.

Another follower said: “I’m also in that ‘special’ gang… who knew lockdown would inflict prosecco pouches on everyone.

“Adele looks great and she has inspired me. She is looking great. I love Adele.”

The Hello singer, 32, credited her recent weight loss and healthier lifestyle to reading ‘profound’ self-help book, ‘Untamed, Stop pleasing, Start Living’ by Glennon Doyle.

The star claimed the book saved her from being “stressed and disheveled”.
