Adele has revealed the special trick she uses to get her five-year-old son to help round the house.

The chart-topper revealed her secret parenting trick in an Instagram snap, as she raised a glass to toast Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on their wedding day.

But in the glamorous snap, Adele accidentally revealed that her son, Angelo, uses a ‘Gobs of Jobs’ activity chart, which awards stars for every chore he completes - and he’s already gained three stars in a week.

Felt cut-out stars can be awarded to youngsters for such tasks as taking the rubbish out, going to bed on time, putting laundry in the basket or cleaning their teeth.

The Gobs of Jobs Activity Chart helps parents organise various ‘tasks, projects and chores’ to family members in a busy household with kids.

Available on Crate and Barrel for £62.94, the website states: ‘Our Gobs of Jobs Activity Chart is ready to keep them all manageable. With various tasks that you can assign to family members throughout the week on a colorful felt calendar, it's an easy and fun way to keep the house running smoothly (or somewhat smoothly).’

Adele isn’t the only fan of the chart, as parents have given it rave reviews online. One said: ‘This has my three-year-old  so excited to earn stars he wants chores everyday. I am beyond happy with my purchase.

‘Plus the design allows it to be displayed without being an eyesore. My family loves it!’

Adele previously spoke about juggling motherhood with her global career, telling Vanity Fair in 2016: 'I love my son more than anything, but on a daily basis, if I have a minute or two, I wish I could do whatever the f*** I wanted, whenever I want. Every single day I feel like that.'

A year earlier, the Hello singer admitted being a mum is much harder than she anticipated.

She told I-D: ‘It's f**king hard. I thought it would be easy. Everyone f**king does it, how hard can it be?'
