Radio 1 presenter Adele Roberts has opened up to Lorraine Kelly about her Bowel cancer diagnosis.
The former I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here contestant appeared on Lorraine to talk about her recovery, after she was diagnosed with stage two bowel cancer in October 2021.
The 42-year-old BBC presenter praised Lorraine for her important initiative aptly titled “No Butts” to raise awareness of the form of cancer as she said it would “save lives.”
Originally, Adele had been told by doctors that she was “too young” to have bowel cancer and she admitted if she had known the signs of this form of cancer she might have been diagnosed sooner.
In a vibrant red suit accompanied by her partner, Kate, Adele explained: “I was really lucky that it was stage two it was about to be stage three it was nearly spreading to my liver, but they got it in time.
She continued to say that she was still having treatment for her cancer after also having stoma surgery: “I’m on chemotherapy in time and I’m just living my life to the full now.”
Lorraine added: “Obviously having Kate by your side is hugely important, could you both talk about everything going on? You could share that as it that’s really important isn’t it.”
Adele agreed that with Kate’s support and an open discussion about what was going on, she went to the doctors to seek advice.

“Absolutely, when I first started to notice mucus when I went to the toilet and then it was like blood that I’d noticed, I was speaking to Kate about it and at first we thought it was because I ate a lot of kale,” she said before breaking into giggles.
Before she solemnly added: “I just didn’t have cancer on my radar, I just thought it might be IBS but when it started to get more regular Kate was like you need to call the doctor.”
Adele returned to BBC Radio 1 just one month after her stoma surgery in November 2021.
Adele was delighted to return to work and Kate even made her a stoma bag with a BBC Radio 1 logo for the occasion.
Sharing the themed bag on Instagram, Adele penned: "Look what she made me! You are so amazing Katie, can I wear this today? You've even cut it to my size as well, look at that. I can't believe it, I'm going back on Radio 1!
"I can't believe it, it's like a month since I had my surgery and they're allowing me to come back which I think Kate is secretly happy about because I need to let that energy out somewhere!"
