Adele has splashed out £15,000 on arcade machines for her new house.
The ‘Skyfall’ singer – who gave birth to her first son, Angelo, in October – has invested in several classic 80s games, including Pac-Man and Space Invaders, alongside two pinball machines and a shooting game with two guns.
A source told The Sun newspaper: “She is kitting out her place with the latest mod cons. But she’s still finding room for quirky gizmos such as the arcade machines.
“They’ll have pride of place in her new games room.”
Adele and her partner Simon Konecki are preparing to move into a mansion on the coast of Sussex, Southern England, and have spent £2 million renovating it.
Adele has long been a fan of games and toys, renting a property with a vintage bowling alley inside when she appeared at the Oscars in February.
She also reportedly had three full-size snooker tables in the house she lived in before buying her new mansion.
Gaming aside, Adele is also planning to take her driving test to help her get around after putting it off due to the phenomenal success of her album ’21’.
A source said: “She’s never taken a test because of her busy schedule over the past few years. Now she’s back in the country she wants to use her downtime to finally pass her test.
“She may have various awards to her name but all she wants is her driving test certificate. There will be no sports cars though – she is eyeing up a more family-friendly car so she can carry the whole clan.”
