BBC DJ Adele Roberts celebrated her final show in 2022 free of cancer after a year “filled with great memories”.
The 43-year-old revealed in October 2021 that she was being treated for bowel cancer and subsequently had surgery to remove the tumor and started using air bags.
In June of this year, she announced she was cancer-free.
Sharing a series of photos from her Early Breakfast Show on Radio 2, Roberts said she feels “lucky” and “grateful” for her life.
She added that she was surprised by a pre-recorded message from Santa this week wishing a Merry Christmas to her and her airbag, which she named is Audrey.
She wrote: “I did my first radio show this year about chemotherapy. I just finished my last show of 2022, cancer free and having a year filled with great memories.
“Even this week my air vent was yelled at by Santa Claus (I have a receipt – swipe to hear him)
“Like, HOW AWESOME?! Thanks to @bbcradio2 and @thisislisten for making that happen. Just WOW… totally made my year…”
Roberts said she couldn’t believe it when her phone showed pictures she was working on a year ago.
“It amazes me,” she added.
“Just know that if you’re going through tough times, things can change just as quickly as it did. Keep the faith.”
Noting that it was her sister’s birthday, she added: “To be able to congratulate her on her birthday and to be in the R2 this morning is such an amazing feeling that words cannot describe.
“How is this life?! I’m so lucky. I’m so grateful. Believe me, I don’t take anything for granted anymore.

“Age is a privilege. I hope we all have more trips around the sun.”
Roberts also thanked partner Kate Holderness for her support this year, adding: “Come home for that Christmas Eve Butt Chip I’ve been drinking all week.
“As Zoe Ball said (earlier this week)… ‘Celebrating Christmas has begun’. Yaaaasss Queen.”
