Adele Roberts has decided to leave BBC Radio 1 after eight years, it has been announced.
Having spent three years at sister station 1Xtra, the 44-year-old joined the station in 2015 as host of the Early Breakfast show and in 2021 she was promoted to the Weekend Breakfast show.
In late 2021 Roberts announced she was receiving treatment for bowel cancer and last summer she shared the news that she was free of the disease.
"Adele is thoroughly loved by the Radio 1 family and audience," said Aled Haydn Jones, head of Radio 1. "She always puts others first; whether it's key workers during the pandemic on her show, other people's health during her own diagnosis of cancer, or supporting her fellow colleagues at the station. Adele ended her run of shows at Radio 1 while continuing to do all of this.
"She continually goes above and beyond for others and I want to say a huge thank you to her for everything she has done over the last eight years for the station."
