Adele Roberts has just received the best news possible.

After going through chemotherapy treatment and a stoma fitting for Stage 2 bowel cancer, the radio host announced to fans that she has officially received the all-clear. 

Sharing the incredible news via Instagram, Adele uploaded a photo with her specialist Dr Khan, and 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.

“Everything we’ve been through seems to be swirling around in my body and life feels a bit surreal at the moment… BUT I AM SO GRATEFUL! I am counting my blessings.”

Adele went on to praise those who are also living with cancer who had been in touch to share their stories and messages of support. 

She continued: “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. 

“Every day I made sure I did something to do a huge f*** you to cancer. It’s taken too many of us. I didn’t know what fate had in store for me but I knew I’d never stop trying.

“Thank you to my family, my friends, everyone who’s taken time to message me, send love or positive thoughts. You’ve kept me going and helped me slay this beast. That’s one thing Dr Khan said to me. Your mind can go to dark places when dealing with cancer but that’s the one thing I knew I had control over. My body might have been dying - it’s still so sore now - but there was no way I was letting it destroy my spirit.”

The former I’m A Celeb star added that despite the dark times, going through treatment and coming out the other side made her “happier than ever” as “going through the darkness has given me the light.”

She then went on to thank her NHS team, and fiance Kate Holderness, adding: “Thank you to my Kate. The reason I had the strength to get out of bed every morning. I will never leave you and I will always find you. In this life and the next.”

Congratulations Adele!
