The star spoke to Lorraine Kelly as part of the show’s No Butts campaign which highlights the importance of spotting symptoms of the disease.

Adele has spoken bravely about why she sought medical help and has been having chemotherapy following her diagnosis last October.

Today she told Lorraine she was thankfully nearly done.

She revealed: “I’m so excited to finish, not long to go now. I started my final cycle on Tuesday. It is starting to stack up. My body’s feeling it now, but my spirit is still feeling really good.”

As part of her treatment Adele had a stoma bag fitted which she has hilariously called Audrey.

Talking about her companion, she joked: “She’s very excited I’m on the show and she’s been quite vocal!”

While Adele said she was feeling “good”, she bravely opened up about another effect of her illness.

Last month, she told her 60,000 followers on Instagram: “Down to opening bottles with my mouth due to hand and foot syndrome.”

Adele explained she was trying to avoid waking up her partner Kate to help her.

She added: “Don’t want to wake up Kate at stupid o’clock to help me. One week to go and then I can start my final cycle of #chemotherapy. Cannot wait.”

Adele’s heartfelt bravery has been noted by all her fans and now she has won an award!

The star won the Radio Times Moment of the Year gong for her return to Radio 1 after her cancer treatment.

The former Big Brother contestant received a standing ovation from the crowd at the Adelphi Theatre in London.

Posting a pic of her on Instagram with the award, Adele wrote: “I am so thankful to Radio 1 for allowing me to return back to my first love so quickly and to the Radio 1 listeners for uplifting me each week and keeping me going.

“I live for the weekends. My body might be struggling but you are my radio medicine and keep my spirit high.”
