Adele Roberts has revealed she ‘can’t remember most’ of her time on Celebrity Bake Off as she was undergoing chemotherapy at the time.
The radio presenter announced that she had been diagnosed with Stage 2 bowel cancer back in October 2021, but after undergoing treatment was given the all-clear last year.

Adele was one of several famous faces to try their hand at baking in the famed Bake Off tent, alongside Tom Daley, David Morrissey and Lucy Beaumont, in the episode that aired last night (2 April).
The celebrity edition, which was filmed last year, is for Stand Up To Cancer - a joint national fundraising campaign from Cancer Research UK and Channel 4 - meaning taking part had an extra poignant meaning for Adele.
In a post on Instagram, the star explained that she was undergoing chemotherapy during filming and struggled with ‘overheating’ and that she ‘actually didn’t remember most of it’.
“Thank you so much to everyone who joined us on tonight’s Great Stand Up To Cancer Bake Off,” she wrote.
“Watching it back was so special. I was on chemotherapy during my time in the tent. I was overheating, delirious and very nervous! I actually don’t remember most of it. I tried my hardest not to let you down Southport. I hope I did you proud.
“Thank you to the whole Standup To Cancer team for inviting me to be on the show. It meant the world. Thank you for everything you do to help others
“Thank you also to Lucy, David and Tom for not only being my favourite people I’ve ever shared a tent with, but also for giving up their time to help such a great cause. You’re my actual heroes 🙌🏽
“Thank you also to everyone who shared their story on the show tonight and everyone who took the time to watch.”
She then urged her followers to donate to the cause, which you can do here, adding: “Together we will beat cancer. Any money you’re able to donate to Stand Up To Cancer will be hugely appreciated and make a real difference.”
In response to fan on Twitter who hailed her a 'warrior and a true inspiration', the 44-year-old said taking part had been 'special' to her.
She wrote: “Thank you so much. I was actually on chemo in the tent. I was overheating most of the time. I had an ice machine to keep me cool.
“I also can’t remember most of this. I know I had an amazing day… but watching it back now is so special.”
