I’m A Celeb’s Adele Roberts gives cancer update in emotional social media post

BBC Radio 1 presenter Adele Roberts has announced she is ‘cancer free’ after an eight-month battle with bowel cancer.

The former I'm A Celebrity contestant, 43, was diagnosed with Stage 2 bowel cancer in October 2021, and has shared updates with fans about her experience of chemotherapy and surgery since her diagnosis.

Posting a photo of herself jumping for joy outside the hospital on Monday, the DJ revealed it was 'the day I've been waiting for' and the news ‘took my breath away’ as she received scan results from her doctor.

Posting an emotional message alongside photos of herself and her physician Dr Khan, Adele wrote: 'Angel on Earth. The day I’ve been waiting for.

'Hearing the words “you’re free of cancer” absolutely took my breath away. I keep replaying it in my mind.

‘It was the most beautiful sound I think I’ve ever heard. Even though I was praying Dr Khan would say that to me I don’t think my head let me believe it until I heard it.'

In her post, she also paid tribute to other people with cancer, revealing they had inspired her during treatment.

"I am also in awe of anyone dealing with cancer. The courage, the strength, the determination… and at times, the humour you have shown has been nothing short of super human," she wrote.

"You've inspired me and given me the fire to never give up. You're warriors and it's thanks to seeing you being so strong that's kept me going.

"Feel the fear and do it anyway. Sometimes it took me all my strength just to get out of bed and face the day but I still did it."

Adele also thanked her friends, family and doctor for their support during the past eight months.

The DJ underwent colostomy surgery to remove a bowel tumor last year and told her followers at the time that 'this little stoma bag helped save my life'.

Adele's partner Kate has cared for her at their own, with the star telling Hello! Magazine this month that the diagnosis has made them closer than ever.

'It sounds strange but it's brought us closer than ever. I've always loved Kate but since my diagnosis I've seen a different side to her. She's my counsellor, my mentor and the best nurse ever,' Adele explained.

Adele was recently honoured at the Diva Awards, picking up the Diva Choice Award for for raising LGBTQ+ awareness in broadcasting, and for sharing her cancer journey.
