Adele Roberts makes sad confession about cancer treatment

Adele, 43, revealed she’s being forced to open bottles with her mouth as she’s suffering from “hand and foot syndrome”.

Earlier this week, she told her 60,000 followers: “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.

“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.”

‘A constant balance’

She explained that her hands and feet hurt from the effects of the treatment.

I actually couldn’t get my brain to work or function.

She typed: “It’s a constant balance of drinking, but also being brave enough to walk on my feet to the toilet.

“It even hurts my hands to use the flush and wash them. Nearly there!” she said.

Blistering and redness on the hands and feet is a side effect of some chemo drugs.

Adele was diagnosed with bowel cancer last October, and has bravely shared her journey.

The star immediately underwent surgery to remove the tumour.

Adele’s specialist subject

Adele has maintained a good sense of humour as she faces cancer head on, though.

This weekend she’s in the hot-seat answering questions on Celebrity Mastermind.

She joked her specialist subject was Uranus, adding: “Not really!”

She’s joined by Charlie Higson, Ed Gamble and Paul Copper on the show hosted by Clive Myrie.

It was filmed while Adele was awaiting news of her diagnosis.

Afterwards she wrote on Twitter and said: “It’s unbelievable how much Mastermind shuts your body down.

“I actually couldn’t get my brain to work or function, it was a struggle to speak, but what a special day and experience.”

Catch Celebrity Mastermind on Saturday BBC One, at 7.20pm.
