BBC Radio 1 presenter Adele Roberts has announced she is to undergo surgery for bowel cancer.
Roberts, 42, who hosts Weekend Breakfast, said she was diagnosed at the start of the month and would have surgery to remove a tumour on Monday.
The former Big Brother star missed both her radio shows this weekend.
Radio 1 said it was sending "all our love and support" to the presenter and her girlfriend Kate Holderness "at this very difficult time".
"Everyone at Radio 1, along with millions of listeners, wishes her a speedy recovery and we look forward to welcoming Adele back on air soon," the statement added.
The radio DJ, from Southport, Merseyside, revealed her news in an Instagram post, saying she had sought medical advice after struggling with her digestion "for a while".
She wrote: "It's all happened so quickly and I'm so sorry to post something like this on here but I hope it helps anyone who might be worrying, or suffering in silence.
"As I've learned over the last few weeks, there's no 'normal' with cancer. Sadly it can affect anyone, at any age, anytime. It doesn't discriminate. Early detection can save your life."
She added: "I'm going to have surgery (on Monday) to remove the tumour and then see if I need anymore treatment or if the cancer has spread.
"So far the outlook is positive and I feel so lucky that I can be treated. It's just the start of my journey but I'm going to give it everything I've got."

In her post, she finished by saying: "The hardest thing wasn't even finding out I had cancer, it was telling my family. It broke my heart."
"If you know any of them please look after them for me until I can see them again. Especially my Katie. I worry about her being on her own while I'm away."

Her girlfriend also wrote an emotional post on Sunday evening, calling Roberts "my hero, my world, my love".
She explained that she couldn't go with Roberts to the hospital or be there when she wakes up after her operation. "It's the most horrible feeling desperately wanting her to get in that hospital ASAP but desperately not wanting to be without her."
She said it had been hard to get her head around how "unfair" the diagnosis was as Roberts did "all the things they say help you prevent cancer" and didn't do the things that were supposed to put you at higher risk.
"But I now understand it can happen to anyone. Cancer's never fair is it?"
Singer Jessie Ware and actress Suranne Jones were among those to send their support to Roberts on Instagram, along with some of her BBC colleagues.
Radio presenter Scott Mills wrote: "We all love you Adele. It's amazing you posted this. You're awesome and you've got this."
Radio 2 broadcaster Sara Cox said Roberts was "brilliant and brave to share this to help people", adding that she was sending her "a thousand gentle hugs".

Roberts rose to fame after appearing on the third series of Channel 4's Big Brother series in 2002. Contestants that year included ITV's This Morning presenter Alison Hammond, and Jade Goody, who died in 2009 after being diagnosed with cervical cancer.
She joined the BBC in 2012 as part of the Radio 1Xtra team, before moving to Radio 1 in 2015 to host the Early Breakfast Show. She took over the Weekend Breakfast programme earlier this year.
She also appeared on ITV's I'm a Celebrity in 2019, becoming the first contestant to be eliminated from the jungle.
Wishing her all the best

She's back at work, minus the tumour. Hopefully all clear for the foreseeable future.
