Award-Winning Singer Refuses Bob Geldof's Request to Take Part in Band Aid 30

Bob Geldof has said Adele refused to get involved in the recording of the Band Aid 30 single.

Geldof told The Sun: "Adele is doing nothing, she's not answering the phone. She doesn't want to be bothered by anyone... She's bringing up a family you know. Some people just don't think they can't make any impact by coming along".

A representative for Adele said: "Bob and the organisers spoke directly with her management but at no point was she confirmed. Adele is supporting Oxfam's Ebola Appeal with a donation".

The Band Aid 30 version of Do They Know It's Christmas? was recorded in London yesterday with a host of famous faces lending their vocals to the good cause.

Bono, Ed Sheeran, Sinead O'Connor, the One Direction boys, Ellie Goulding, Jessie J, Emeli Sandé, Chris Martin and Sam Smith were just some of the stars who got involved.

As can be seen by the below tweet, some of the song's lyrics have been changed in light of the Ebola crisis.
