She's one of the most successful British artists of all time. And it seems Adele's reign at the top of her game shows no sign of ending any time soon, after reports she has been asked to join the judging panel of BBC One talent show The Voice.

The 23-year-old singer has apparently been approached to take part in the show, and would be joining a panel that is tipped to include Cheryl Cole and Cee Lo Green.

A source told the Daily Mirror:
'Adele's success is all down to her incredible voice and, int his way, embodies all that The Voice represents. She's honest, funny and loved my millions of people of all ages. 'She really has "The Voice" that can sell albums around the world so she know what to look for.'

The Voice is coming to the BBC next year after proving a huge hit in America with stars including Christina Aguilera on the panel.

And the unique aspect of the £25million show is that it aims to find someone with an incredible voice and doesn't judge contestants on their image or overall persona.

Adele has apparently not yet decided whether to take the role, but hinted that there was something in the pipeline in an interview with Radio 1's Chris Moyles yesterday.

She said: 'There's a possibility that I'm doing something quite big next year - I've got a meeting about it on Friday.'

Meanwhile, the latest album sales for 2011, released yesterday, show that Adele's second album 21 is the biggest selling record of the year so far.

In addition, her debut album 19 comes in in second place, despite the fact it was released over three years ago.

Adele took to her blog earlier this year when 21 topped the album charts in the US to express her amazement at the achievement.

She wrote: 'I remember going into the then massive Virgin store in Times Square when I was 15 where I thought how amazing it would be to one day have a record in a record shop abroad. Though I never thought it likely in the UK, because it's pretty unlikely full stop.

'The thought of my music travelling to any extent always seemed impossible! Almost 7 years later I've just been told I have a number 1 album in the US! And I can't put into specific words how I feel right now, but I've never felt this way before!

And producer Rick Rubin also spoke recently about the success of Adele's 21, insisting it is her unique voice which has led to such huge success.
He said:
'She uses her vocal instrument in a way that we don’t get to hear a lot.
'What she is doing, it’s a very pure expression of herself and it resonates with people. There is no trickery involved. It’s a really honest album.'
