BBC DJ and I’m A Celeb star Adele Roberts gives lengthy cancer update

The 43-year-old was diagnosed with colon cancer in October last year and given the all-clear in June. She has regularly updated fans on her recovery.

Roberts revealed after speaking to her doctor that she would not be getting rid of her ostomy pouch, which she has named Audrey.

She shared, “‘Oh won’t you stay another day.’ Had this song stuck in my head this week.

“Just a quick update – I had a meeting with my counselor and it looks like Audrey will remain the #stoma. She rides again! Well… she’s staying for now. It’s a long story but basically it’s not possible to give me a reversal of my stoma anytime soon. He also casually mentioned that I had my rectum removed.”

She continued: I may never be able to go to the bathroom normally again…WTAF?! Anyway… for now – although I have the honor of having a stoma I thought I could try to do something good. Share how life is every day and maybe things I find helpful?

“Clothes that fit well/are accessible…sometimes pants almost rip my ostomy bag down before I’m even out the door. How I stay fit and motivated (without having an incident) Comfortable shoes!! My feet are always still DAMAGEFUL from the chemo. Seriously. Kate has to put band-aids on my soles pretty much every day so I can walk. I’d show you, but you’d actually vomit.”

She added: “It might also be good to share how accessible places, events and venues are. These are things I have to watch out for when I’m on the road. I’m still not sure if I should eat and drink from home.” Even if I’m lucky enough to be out at night, DJing or at an event, I don’t stay long, I don’t eat or drink much and I have military knowledge of where each toilet is – especially the accessible one.

“I want to emphasize that this is my experience and I’m learning to take better care of Audrey. Everyone is different but I know from experience that if I get too excited or too nervous it’s game over!”

“I also didn’t realize that a stoma was classified as an ‘invisible’ disability,” Adele said.

“Thank you to Radio 1 and the BBC’s Diversity and Inclusion team for holding a brilliant session on disability recently. It definitely helped me to realize that I can help a lot more by sharing my everyday life and hopefully helping the wonderful #ostomaten community.

“There are around 200,000 people in the UK with a stoma. From little babies to the more distinguished and older members – so many more people than we all realize – and I feel like we could do a lot of good together.” BBC DJ and I’m A Celeb star Adele Roberts gives lengthy cancer update
