The bronzed hunk keep­ing Adele safe sets in­ter­net alight

AS the body­guard of a global su­per­star, his job is to stay very much in the back­ground.

But Adele’s min­der Peter Van der Veen has now been pro­pelled to star­dom him­self thanks to his strik­ing good looks.

The Dutch­man’s chis­elled jaw, pierc­ing blue eyes and bulging mus­cles have set pulses rac­ing.

Pic­tures of Adele with the former body­builder, who was crowned Mr Europe in 2005, have gone vi­ral on so­cial me­dia, with the at­ten­tion firmly on him rather than the award-win­ning singer – even though she has just re­leased her third al­bum 25, which shot straight to num­ber one af­ter sell­ing a record-break­ing 800,000 copies in its first week.

One fan wrote on Twit­ter: ‘Although I love the new Adele al­bum, I think I’m more ob­sessed with her body­guard.’

Another gushed that ‘Adele’s body­guard could set fire to the rain he’s so hot’ – re­fer­ring to one of the singer’s songs from her sec­ond al­bum 21.

Another wrote: ‘All I want for Christ­mas is Adele’s body­guard sit­ting un­der my tree wait­ing for me.’

The heart-throb pre­vi­ously pro­vided se­cu­rity for Lady Gaga and worked with Aus­tralian rap­per Iggy Aza­lea, but it is only now that he has in­ad­ver­tently stepped into the lime­light.
