Adele’s victory was all the more special given that she bravely battled colon cancer last year.

The 42-year-old revealed she had been diagnosed with cancer in an Instagram post a month after the disease was discovered.

She went under the knife last October to have part of her bowel removed and begin chemotherapy.

Girlfriend Kate, 37, recently posted a video documenting the radio star’s painful experience and showing her sobbing in hospital.

Other clips showed Adele struggling to walk up the stairs after her chemotherapy treatment, wearing a hospital gown and socks.

Despite it all, Adele remained determined and tonight was able to celebrate all the good she has done for the LGBTQI community.
