Grammy award-winning singer Adele has become the wealthiest young British musician after racking up an impressive £20 million fortune.

She may be worth millions, but money-savvy Adele has shown that she has no plans to blow it all on unnecessary luxuries.

The London-born pop singer reportedly left a hotelier stunned when she refused to land her helicopter in the hotel's field because the £75 fee was "too expensive".

Peter Hands, who runs the historic Speech House Hotel near Cinderford, said he was speechless when he got a call asking if Adele's plane could use his helipad in the heart of the Forest of Dean in Gloucestershire.

After he informed the caller of the cost of the landing fee, he was told it was too much and that they would look elsewhere.

Hands told the Daily Mail: "We had a call last Sunday morning asking if her helicopter could land on our helipad by the hotel and how much it would cost.

"'When I told him there was a standard £75 fee he said that was too much - which is a bit rich coming from one of today's most successful multimillionaire pop stars.

"They also asked about arranging a taxi to take her to Mitcheldean for 10am. It was a mystery as to what she was doing in the Forest."
