His death comes after it was reported in 2019 that Mr Evans was making just £ 50 a day as a Yodel delivery boy.

Mr. Evans had revealed in 2013 that he was suffering from colon cancer.

In an interview that year, he claimed to ‘just want my daughter back’ after years without talking to Adele.

Two years earlier, Mr. Evans admitted that he was a “rotten father” to his daughter when she was growing up.

I put away two liters of vodka and seven or eight pints of Stella every day.

‘I’ve been drinking like this for three years. God only knows how I survived, ”he said.

He added that he was “deeply ashamed” of what he “had become.”

Adele has won numerous awards throughout her career, winning all six of her nominations at the Grammy Awards in 2012

Evans, who lived in a small rented house in Bridgend, South Wales, earned between £ 50 and £ 100 for his role as a delivery driver – delivering parcels for the Yodel courier service, as reported by The sun.

The newspaper photographed the Reformed alcoholic, dressed in jeans and a pink shirt, during his rounds.

And quoted ‘a friend’ as saying that Evans was ‘heartbroken’ about his relationship with Adele and just wanted to be a ‘normal grandpa’ to her kids.

‘He doesn’t really have a life, he just exists. He was a plumber, but switched to driving a few months ago, ”they said.

In the interview that led to their arrest, Evans took full responsibility for his shortcomings as a father – he walked away when his daughter was three, leaving her mother Penny Adkins to raise her on his own.

Despite the breakup with Penny, Mr. Evans stayed close to Adele, who would spend school holidays in Wales with her grandparents Rose and John Evans and her half-brother Cameron.

But he admitted that he lost touch with his daughter when he had a breakdown following the death of Adele’s grandfather John in 1999 and the breakdown of a relationship that led to a long battle against alcoholism.

He has previously confessed that he wrote her letters every month in vain, saying that he never gave up hope of seeing his grandson.

And said, ‘She has no doubt that I want to see her, to find out what’s wrong and to show her that I want and should play a different role in her life than Mr. Rotten Dad.

“She’s clearly taken up on me and I feel powerless to change her mind.”
