BBC radio DJ Adele Roberts is ending 2022 on a high after presenting her final show free of cancer.
The 43-year-old revealed in October 2021 that she was undergoing treatment for bowel cancer and later had surgery to remove a tumour and began using a stoma bag.
In June this year she announced she was cancer-free, and is now celebrating a year ‘full of amazing memories’.
Sharing a series of photos from her Early Breakfast Show on Radio 2, Adele said she felt ‘lucky’ and ‘grateful’ for her life.
She added she had been surprised with a pre-recorded message from Father Christmas this week, wishing a happy Christmas to her and her stoma bag, which she has named Audrey.
She wrote: ‘I did my first radio show this year on chemotherapy. I’ve just finished my last show of 2022, cancer free and with a year full of amazing memories.
‘My stoma even got a shout out from Santa this week (I’ve got receipts – swipe to hear the big man)
‘Like, HOW BRILLIANT is that?! Thank you @bbcradio2 and @thisislisten for making that happen. Just WOW… absolutely made my year that…’
Adele said she could not believe it when her phone showed her photos from what she was doing a year ago.
‘It blows my mind,’ she added.
‘Just know that if you’re going through a tough time it can all change just as quickly as it went. Keep the faith.’
Noting it was her sister’s birthday, she added: ‘Being able to wish her a happy birthday and being on the R2 this morning is a feeling so good there are no words for it.
‘How is this life?! I’m so f***ing lucky. I am so grateful. Believe me, I don’t take anything for granted anymore.
‘Age is a privilege. I hope we all get many more trips around the sun.’
Adele also thanked partner Kate Holderness for her support this year, declaring: ‘Let’s get home for that Christmas Eve Chip butty I’ve been banging on about all week.
‘As Zoe Ball said (earlier this week)… “Christmas eating has started”. Yaaasss Queen.’
