The source added: "They said pretty firmly that they were back in the UK now for good after spending some time in Los Angeles."

Adele previously underwent throat surgery in 2011, but it has clearly hit her really hard this time, as she admitted she was struggling to come to terms with being unable to complete her tour.

She wrote at the time: "You know I would not make this decision lightly. I've done 121 shows and I have 2 left. 2 left! Who the f--- cancels a show at Wembley Stadium?

"To not complete this milestone in my career is something I'm struggling to get my head around and I wish I wasn't having to write this.

"I have changed my life drastically in every way to make sure I got through this tour that started at the beginning of last year.

"To not be able to finish it is something I'm really struggling to come to terms with. It's as if my whole career has been building up to these four shows (sic)."

Twitter says its safety updates are stamping out abuse .
It's safe to say Twitter had an awful 2016. Yet amidst allitsturmoil, its abuse problem trumped all others. To make matters worse, the company's convoluted approach to cleaning up its site left even its most ardent users bemused. Then, at the onset of this year, Twitter promised a more proactive stance. A slew of updates followed, including a bunch of muting and filtering tools. Now, at the halfway stage of 2017, it claims the changes are working.In a blog post, Twitter's VP of engineering Ed Ho claims abuse on the platform is "significantly less" than it was six months ago.
