Adele Roberts is an award-winning British broadcaster and DJ.
A proud member of the LGBTQ+ community, Adele & her partner Kate are huge advocates for representation and equality.
Diagnosed with stage two bowel cancer in October 2021, Adele is passionate about raising ostomy visibility and bowel cancer awareness.
Adele’s fight with bowel cancer hasn’t managed to slow her down either. The course of treatment involved a low anterior resection and ileostomy surgery in October 2021 which, fortunately, successfully removed cancer around her colon. By January 2022, Adele had embarked on running 5K every day for one year, donating £5 to a different cancer charity with every run. Impressively, Adele was running whilst fulfilling a six-month course of oral chemotherapy and with a stoma – who she affectionately refers to as Audrey.
In 2017 and 2018, she ran the London Marathon fundraising for the mental health charity, Heads Together where her efforts were formally recognised by Prince William and Kate Middleton. She will be running the 2023 London Marathon less than a year after finishing chemotherapy and is hoping to set a Guinness World Record for the fastest female with an ileostomy.
