Adele has tearfully told James Corden he helped her through the fallout from her divorce.

The Chasing Pavements singer said on chat show host James' final Carpool Karaoke segment his most impactful help came when she went on a family holiday with him, his wife Julia Carey, 43, their three children, and the son she had with Simon, 10-year-old Angelo.

Adele, 34, finalised her split from charity boss Simon Konecki, 49, in March 2021.

She revealed about how a verse in her song, I Drink Wine, was inspired by outgoing The Late Late Show presenter's life advice: "It was inspired by a conversation that you and I had, and it was the fourth of Jan 2020 or something."

"We'd been on vacation together with the kids and we were on our way home and my mood had changed. It was the first year that I felt like I had to hold myself accountable for just being an adult."

"The year before that I left Simon, you and Jules and the kids were so integral in looking after me and Angelo."

Getting tearful, Adele - now dating 41-year-old sports agent Rich Paul - added: "You used to do it with humour as well, you used to be like: 'Good luck with that one!' with any sort of thing that I was pursuing."

"You were always like an adult with me, you and Julia would always give me this advice."

But Adele said in the Carpool episode, released on YouTube on Monday (April 24) giving James advice about whether to quit America to return to Britain made her feel "unsafe".

Explaining his decision to leave hosting in the US, which will end with his final The Late Late Show on April 27, James - who last year made headlines for his alleged rude behaviour at the Balthazar restaurant in New York - added: "It was work stuff, and the Internet, and all those things."

Adele replied: "It got me thinking, I felt so unsafe, with you feeling unsafe, because you've always been like (the adult) you have, since I was like 21."

"And then I went to the studio a couple of weeks later, and I wrote this and I sang it into my phone and I sent it to you and I do remember you saying: 'That's exactly how I was feeling.' "

She also told James: "I'm just not ready to come back (to Britain) yet. Otherwise I would come back with you."
