Adele Roberts has given her bowel cancer update after she was told the tumor had been growing inside her for a decade.
The radio presenter, 42, announced on social media that she was diagnosed with the condition last year, and that she has been receiving treatment in recent months.
This includes surgery to remove the tumor and, more recently, chemotherapy, with Big Brother alum being open about her experience since her diagnosis.
The Radio 1 presenter appeared on ITV’s Lorraine channel on Thursday morning to share the news that she is on her final cycle of chemotherapy.
Host Lorraine Kelly, who was outside the ITV studio with Dr Hilary Jones, asked Adele about Audrey, which is the name DJ gave her tumour.

Adele joked: “She was so excited that I was on the show and she was quite vocal!”
Adele also told Lorraine she’s nearing the end of her treatment, saying: “I’m so excited to finish, there’s not much time left to go now.
“I started my last cycle on Tuesday. It is starting to stack. My body feels it now, but my spirit is still very good and thanks to campaigns like yours, I get out of bed every day and live my best life.”
In an earlier interview on the show last month, Adele detailed her terrifying early symptoms, saying: “First when I started noticing mucus when I went to the bathroom I gave birth and then I realized it was blood I told Kate about it and at first we thought it was because I ate a lot of kale.
“I just didn’t have cancer on my radar. I thought it could be IBS, but when it started to become more regular, Kate said you need to call the doctor.”
Adele spoke about supporting the show’s ‘No Butts’ campaign, which emphasizes the importance of getting screened for symptoms of bowel cancer as early as possible.
Adele replied: “Thank you so much Lorraine, and thank you for such a great campaign. It’s an honor to be a part of this. ”
On the big pants that advertise the ‘No Butt’ campaign, Lorraine tells viewers: “It’s about trying to get people’s attention – trying to get people going, ‘Oh, all those things. What is this about? “
Dr. Hilary said: “Funny with these things is good – it breaks the ice.”
He added: “There is no room for shame – it is just a part of the human body. People need to get over that. Grow up, talk about symptoms in any language you want, you won’t make it difficult for the doctor, any doctor.
“We know that people have been calling us and saying that this program has been instrumental in helping them see a doctor, get an early diagnosis, and be cured. There will be more in the future. “
Lorraine airs weekdays at 9am on ITV and ITV Hub
