It is being reported that Bryan Adams and the late Princess Diana "hooked up" in the 1990s and the Canadian rocker was taken to Kensington Palace in butler Paul Burrell's car boot.

'Real Housewives Of Sydney' star Lisa Oldfield revealed some of the details of her in-depth chats with Burrell during their time together on 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! Australia' earlier this month.

She told KIIS's Celeb HQ hosts Zoe Marshall and John 'JC' Caldwell:

"Yeah, Diana and Bryan Adams hooked up in the mid-90s. Apparently Paul used to sneak him into Kensington Palace in the boot of his car."

Stories that the 'Summer Of 69' and 'Run To You' singer had an affair with the late Princess in 1996 after Diana split from Prince Charles have previously surfaced. Adams' former girlfriend and former Bond girl Cecilie Thomsen, who was with Adams for twelve years, said in 2003 that he cheated on her with the Princess.

The Danish actress said at the time:

"I knew Diana had an affair with Bryan. Bryan knew Paul Burrell very well and Paul was part of the inner circle around Bryan, and he also introduced him to Diana.

"The first time Bryan met Diana I wasn't invited. Ours was a stormy relationship and Bryan's affair with Diana didn't make it easier."

The 'Tomorrow Never Dies' star actually attended the Princess's funeral with Adams and said of the service in 1997:

"I was sitting in the church with mixed emotions."

Adams and Thomsen broke up in 2002.

The 'Reckless' album was a huge success for Adams. Released in November 1984, it sold twelve million copies worldwide and spawned six hit singles in a year, the aformentioned 'Run To You' and 'Summer Of '69', 'Somebody', 'Heaven' and 'One Night Love Affair'.

The b-side of the 'Heaven' single on most versions of the release is a song called 'Diana', written in March 1984 in Vancouver by Adams and Jim Vallance. The track, a light, comedic song about Diana's wedding to Prince Charles, was not included on the 'Reckless' album because Adams was worried about offending the royal couple.

The lyrics of the song admire Diana, a celebrity who the narrator first saw in a magazine, then later on TV. He professes his love for Diana, and indicates that her current husband, who is not named, is not good enough for her. He begs Diana to leave her husband, indicating that she wouldn't have to be part of the 'social scene' if they were together.

Co-writer Vallance once commented that the British press "attempted to fabricate a scandal" when they heard the song, saying that Adams had inappropriate feelings for Diana and had insulted Prince Charles.

Adams often performed 'Diana' live but retired the song permanently on the day of Diana's death.

There are no versions of 'Diana' online at all with some YouTube posters suggesting the song has been forcibly removed from all channels.

Lisa Oldfield also reportedly said about her husband on 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! Australia':

"He's a twat... I will be speaking to a divorce lawyer. I feel like he is a boat anchor around my neck and after seventeen years I've had a revelation."
