I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! star Adele Roberts has revealed she has been diagnosed with bowel cancer.
Adele Roberts, 41, has shared the news of the bowel cancer diagnosis to her fans with a heartfelt caption sharing her story and thanking the NHS and BBC Radio 1 for all of their help and support.
The Radio DJ took to Instagram with an image of herself in a hospital gown along with advice and information for those affected by bowel cancer.
The caption read: "Ok, there’s no easy way to do this and it feels weird, especially posting on social media (I’m going full Black Mirror) but I’m hoping it’ll reach anyone who might benefit from seeing it or reading it.
"For a while now I’ve been struggling with my digestion. Thanks to a conversation I had with my Dad a few years back I went to my GP for a check up. I’ll be honest, I was embarrassed but I also knew that it could be something serious. So I went just in case. I didn’t think anything of it at first and just assumed it might be food sensitivity.
"After a few phone calls I was sent for some examinations and checks. I was then diagnosed with bowel cancer. This was at the start of the month.
"It’s all happened so quickly and I’m so sorry to post something like this on here but I hope it helps anyone who might be worrying, or suffering in silence. PLEASE make sure you get checked out if you have ANY concerns. The sooner you’re able to see your GP or talk to someone the sooner you can get help.
"If I hadn’t I might not be so lucky. As I’ve learned over the last few weeks, there’s no ‘normal’ with cancer. Sadly it can affect anyone, at any age, anytime. It doesn’t discriminate. Early detection can save your life.
The NHS have been INCREDIBLE. They’re heroes I’m going to have surgery tomorrow to remove the tumour and then see if I need anymore treatment or if the cancer has spread.
"So far the outlook is positive and I feel so lucky that I can be treated. It’s just the start of my journey but I’m going to give it everything I’ve got.
"Sending everyone so much love and positivity for the week ahead. THANK YOU to my family words cannot describe how much you have helped me through these last few weeks. You saved me. You are my angels and I shall be thinking of you tomorrow.
"I can’t wait to wake up and see your beautiful faces (on FaceTime if I can compose myself enough to work my phone). If not your voices to hear you will be everything. That’s all I’m wishing for."
Celebs and fans have rushed to her support with ex-BBC Radio 1 colleague Clara Amfo commenting: "Love you so much".
BBC Radio 1's official account said: "Sending all our love and support to you, Kate and your families. Everyone at Radio 1 – along with all our listeners – is wishing you a speedy recovery and we can't wait to welcome you back on air soon."
Adele rose to fame after appearing on Channel 4's Big Brother in 2002 and went onto become a radio presenter and more recently became known for her stint in ITV's I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here back in 2019.
