BBC Radio 1’s DJ Adele Roberts has revealed that a stomach cancer diagnosis has brought her closer to fiancee Kate Holderness.
The presenter, 43, announced in October that she had to undergo treatment and surgery to remove the tumor.
She is currently using a tracheal bag, which attaches to her abdomen and collects her stool, while she also has chemotherapy.
Talking to Hi! magazine“It sounds strange, but it brought us closer than ever,” she said.
“I’ve always loved Kate but since her diagnosis I’ve seen a different side of her. She’s my mentor, my mentor and the best nurse ever. .
“She helped me when I couldn’t walk and had to shuffle into work at Radio 1. She was my absolute hero.”
In response, Kate added: “I’ve always been a shy person, but Adele’s illness has awakened a strength in me that I never knew I had.”
Adele was informed of her diagnosis on October 1 of last year.

“I feel bad for putting Kate and her family through it, but now I know it’s nobody’s fault it’s cancer, and the sad thing is it’s going to happen to either of us. .”
Kate added: “I was devastated. But I held back my tears because I didn’t want my mother to think I wouldn’t hit him.
