British singer Adele has been applauded for keeping Britons' spirits up as her home nation battle the economic crunch - by the Prime Minister himself.
Gordon Brown sent the Chasing Pavements hitmaker a letter recently, thanking her for her uplifting tunes.
She says, "It was really nice. It went, 'With the troubles that the country's in financially, you're a light at the end of the tunnel.' It was amazing.
"I'm fighting the credit crunch on my own!"
