‘I don’t want to be ashamed anymore. I’m alive and I’m lucky to be on this treatment. My skin is also healing and looking SO MUCH BETTER than the start. Plus I’m nearly there now! Monday can’t come soon enough.’

The former I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here campmate admitted that she even covered her skin in the jungle. 

She explained: ‘Ps. When I was in the jungle I used to get up really early to hide in the medicine hut so I could cover up my acne scars. 

‘This was totally in the rules by the way, I had permission to take makeup for my acne but I was too ashamed to let my camp mates see me with no makeup on.

‘It even made showering and some of the tasks harder. I used to freak out if my face got wet. I feel stupid now but I just want you to know how silly I’ve been.’

Adele had been diagnosed with bowel cancer in September 2021 and had surgery to remove the tumour and part of her bowel, followed by chemotherapy.
