She wrote in her latest wrote: ‘Today is my favourite day. It’s the day my love was born. Happy birthday @kateholderness. And happy anniversary! 18 years together.’

‘Thank you for putting up with me for longer than legally necessary. I love you with all my heart… I love you so much that I’d catch Covid for you. Which I have. I can’t believe you’re the one that got me my little Trojan horse.’ 

She continued: ‘I think this means you now have to make me my favourite tea. Turkey drummers, waffles and beans please. Get in Morrisons love! Haha.

‘Ps. If anyone’s interested in someone who’s got a stoma, on chemo and has Covid I’ll be sharing my symptoms (and possible slow death) on my Insta story. I think Kate might have pulled off the perfect murder here.’

‘Best Valentine’s yet, Thanks to Corona V for making tonight possible.’

The star detailed how the illness developed and credited switching to a healthier lifestyle for helping her recover quickly after previously being ‘clinically obese’ with a ‘poor diet’. 

She explained in a post that her ‘lifestyle choices’ helped her in the long run and encouraged her followers to ‘have balance’ in their lives. 

She said: ‘I was told it took about 10 years for my bowel cancer to grow.

‘I didn’t start getting healthier until around 2016 (when I did a documentary for Radio 1). Before that I had a poor diet and was clinically obese. 

‘So main message is take of yourselves and try and have balance in your life.

‘I truly believe my new lifestyle choices have helped me recover quickly from surgery and deal with chemotherapy.’

Adele went on a very public weight loss regime and shed two stone before appearing I’m A Celebrity in 2019. 

In an old video on her YouTube channel the star said she went from ‘eating cake every day’ to giving up sugar entirely.

Adele said she ‘woke the f**k up’ and changed her life after she reached 12 and a half stone in 2017. 

It comes after last month Adele spoke out about her ‘shock’ cancer diagnosis and detailed the effects of her surgery to remove the tumour. 

In her first live interview since the announcement, the I’m A Celebrity star appeared on Good Morning Britain to discuss her diagnosis.

Speaking to hosts Kate Garraway and Ben Shephard, she explained: ‘It was a shock. I didn’t realise I could get cancer which I know sounds silly because I know now it can happen to anyone at any age. 

‘I’m vegetarian. I’m healthy. I exercise.’

Describing the first warning signs, she said: ‘My digestion started to get a bit funny – after what we ate in the jungle I wasn’t surprised.

‘I noticed when I went to the toilet things like mucus and then blood. I didn’t know whether to call the doctor because of Covid I didn’t want to bother anyone. But it got so consistent that I thought I’d better call up just in case.’

Despite all she’s been through, Adele remains positive and hopeful she’ll be back to her ‘normal self’ by the summer.

She said: ‘I feel like I’ve not really taken it on board. I’m just trying to get through each day. The NHS have been awesome. 

‘I’ve been able to get back on Radio One and I’m on chemotherapy. Hopefully by the middle of this year I’ll be back to my normal self.’ 

Adele’s girlfriend Kate Holderness was by her side throughout the interview, and voiced her support for her brave partner.

She praised: ‘She’s been amazing. It’s been just 16 weeks since that diagnosis. What she’s been through – Surgery, a stoma, chemo – she’s been amazing.’

Adele underwent surgery to remove the tumour at the end of last year, and she revealed: ‘So far I believe they’ve managed to remove the tumour.  

‘It was in a really awkward place but they managed to save my bottom. My stoma is named Audrey. Once I’ve finished the chemo I should be well again.’

Concluding the interview, Adele gave a message of advice to her viewers, saying: ‘I wanna say to people please get checked. Don’t be shy. The doctors are awesome and they will look after you.’

THE SYMPTOMS OF BOWEL CANCER, WHICH DEVELOPS FROM POLYPS IN THE COLON AND RECTUM

Bowel, or colorectal, cancer affects the large bowel, which is made up of the colon and rectum.

Such tumours usually develop from pre-cancerous growths, called polyps.

Symptoms include:

  • Bleeding from the bottom
  • Blood in stools
  • A change in bowel habits lasting at least three weeks
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Extreme, unexplained tiredness
  • Abdominal pain

Most cases have no clear cause, however, people are more at risk if they: 

  • Are over 50
  • Have a family history of the condition
  • Have a personal history of polyps in their bowel
  • Suffer from inflammatory bowel disease, such as Crohn’s disease
  • Lead an unhealthy lifestyle  

Treatment usually involves surgery, and chemo- and radiotherapy.

More than nine out of 10 people with stage one bowel cancer survive five years or more after their diagnosis.

This drops significantly if it is diagnosed in later stages. 

According to Bowel Cancer UK figures, more than 41,200 people are diagnosed with bowel cancer every year in the UK. 

It affects around 40 per 100,000 adults per year in the US, according to the National Cancer Institute.
