Adele worked on the latest James Bond film when she sang the theme song 'Skyfall', and it turns out that Daniel Craig would love to have her back.

According to The Sunday People, Craig thought very highly of Adele and was particularly impressed with the singer's work ethic.

A source told the paper, "Daniel wants to keep the winning team. He loved Adele and wants her back."

Daniel Craig previously told how the song moved him to tears, telling Yahoo! Movies, "I cried. From the opening bars I knew immediately, then the voice kicked in and it was exactly what I'd wanted from the beginning."

He went on to describe how he felt the song 'perfectly fitted' the on-screen action.

"It just got better and better because it fitted the movie. In fact the more of the movie we made, the more it fitted it."

Adele could be set to make her comeback performance at the Oscars, which are planning on having a special James Bond themed celebration due to the franchise's 50 years anniversary.

'Skyfall' could be nominated for Best Original Song and if so, it's likely that Adele will choose to perform it.

Producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron said, "We are very happy to include a special sequence on our show saluting the Bond films on their 50th birthday.

"Starting with Dr No back in 1962, the 007 movies have become the longest-running motion picture franchise in history and a beloved global phenomenon."
