"Ready to give this everything I’ve got! I’m on the ginger, Kate’s got me loads of good advice from the cancer chat forum… gloves, anti sickness sweets, foot and hand cream, turmeric, grape seed extract – but we’ve got room for much more! Please share any advice you might have. THANK YOU!"

The presenter told how she would be wearing colours like pink during her treatment in a bid to lift her spirits.

She said: "If I’m wearing pink give us a wink! Haha!… or a smile. It helps me more than you can imagine. I’m going to try and wear a bit of colour through these cycles to stay positive and keep my spirits up. I’ve been inspired by so many people who’ve shared their story or posted online and I hope I can do the same for someone else."

Adele said the two doses she's taken so far have left her with "massive fingers" which she described as being "as like big sausages".

The DJ also revealed the initial metallic taste she has in her mouth had gone but that her teeth were "starting to hurt".

She also paid tribute to an NHS nurse in another post as she shared a snap of her fitting a stoma bag on her.

Adele said: "And Audrey my little stoma. I had a word with her this morning and she’s ready! She also saw her hero Elaine today, (her wonderful stoma nurse) and she’s determined to do her proud."

Speaking on her radio show at the weekend, Adele told the listeners that she feels like she owes the NHS 'her life.'

"It's a huge testament to the skill and knowledge and level of care at the NHS. They're amazing. I owe them my life. I can't thank them enough."
