Adele is filling her house with her favourite arcade games. The 24-year-old singer wants to make the most of her downtime and has splashed out on a series of “quirky gizmos” to keep her occupied.

Adele has chosen '80s favourites Pac-Man and Space Invaders, as well as a “shoot ‘em up” game complete with replica guns and two pinball machines.

“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,” a source told British newspaper The Sun. “They’ll have pride of place in her new games room.”

Adele has been spending more time out of the spotlight since giving birth to her son Angelo last year.

Although she has enjoyed success at the recent Oscars and Grammy Awards, Adele has been happy for her career to take a backseat while she adjusts to motherhood.

The star and her partner Simon Konecki have also been busy renovating their £2 million (NZ$3.6m) mansion in Sussex, England.

It seems they are finally putting the finishing touches to their family home, with Adele keen for the arcade games to feature in several rooms.

The singer is known for wanting to keep the fun factor high at her houses.

When she was staying in Los Angeles ahead of her Oscars performance earlier this year, Adele rented a property which boasted its own vintage bowling alley.

The last home she owned, a ten-bedroom house in West Sussex, had three full-size snooker tables to keep guests entertained.
