Singer Adele was inspired to write the heartbreak songs on her hit new album 21 by penning letters to the lover who dumped her.
The Rolling in the Deep hitmaker never sent the correspondence, but kept each sealed and stamped letter in a box of keepsakes.
She tells Entertainment Weekly magazine, "I must have written him (ex) about five or six letters at different stages of the recovery. I've written, put in an envelope, stamped (them) and everything, but never sent.
"I've got a little box of stuff that reminds me of us, and they're sill in there."
