Adele Roberts, who previously appeared on I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here, has revealed that she has been diagnosed with bowel cancer.
The 42-year-old announced her health update on Instagram, where she told her followers that she would be getting an operation to remove the tumour.
Following this, she revealed that she would be further examined to see if there was any more treatment necessary for her cancer diagnosis.
Posting a photo of herself in a hospital gown, Adele admitted that she wasn’t sure whether or not to share the information but she hoped that others could benefit from it.
‘For a while now I’ve been struggling with my digestion,’ she wrote. ‘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.’
She continued: ‘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.’
Adele is remaining very positive following her diagnosis and she promises she will give her treatment journey ‘everything she’s got’ in order to get better again.
‘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,’ she posted.
The comments section under Adele’s shock health update was flooded with support with fans eager to send their well wishes to the BBC Radio 1 presenter.
