I’m A Celebrity 2019: Who is Adele Roberts? Inside her job, relationship and net worth

Adele Roberts is confirmed to be entering the jungle, after she was spotted touching down at Brisbane airport earlier this week.

The 40 year old from Southport in Merseyside will be heading into the camp on Sunday alongside the like of ex-Girls Aloud singer Nadine Coyle, EastEnders star Jacqueline Jossa and retired footballer Ian Wright.

Speaking of her readiness for jungle life the star said: “I’ve only camped once and that was the worst night of my life. I hate spiders. If I see one, I can’t speak, I freeze and I do this weird thing where I wring my hands together!”

Despite this, she has stated that appearing on the show has been a lifelong ambition, but who actually is Adele Roberts?

How is Adele Roberts famous?

Adele is no stranger to reality television, having rose to fame on Big Brother back in 2002 when she was just 23 years of age.

During the show the star struck up a close friendship with fellow contestant Alex Sibley and she had to break the news to him that she was in a relationship with a woman when he developed feelings for her.

Despite this, the pair remained good friends and even reentered the Big Brother house together for a cameo in series eight.

Although we first encountered Adele on our screens most people will probably recognise her voice more readily than her looks. This is because she is now a BBC Radio One DJ who plays the 4am to 6.30am slot, as well as regularly covering slots for presenters such as Melvin Odoom and Clara Amfo.

One benefit of working at such an unsociable hour is that Adele won’t fall victim to sleep deprivation whilst in the jungle, as she has been getting up at 2am to host her show for over four years. She told ITV: “My show’s on so early, we have to make our own fun, so I’ve got some games we can play if I feel like we’re getting bored.”

Who is Adele Robert’s girlfriend?

Adele is dating actress Kate Holderness who appeared on Coronation Street back in 2013. She also played Catherine Parr in BBC’s Henry VIII and His Six Wives in 2016 then Elizabeth I in 2017.

Kate’s Instagram is crammed full of sweet snaps of the pair, who are frequent travellers, attending galleries and theatre performances. In fact, Kate uploaded a pic of the two in the audience for top Westend musical Hamilton, and admitted in the caption that they had bumped into fellow I’m A Celeb contestant Kate Garraway.

She wrote: "Fun #imaceleb fact: We sat next to @kategarraway at Hamilton a couple of weeks ago. I saw someone who looked like Kate across the theatre & I shouted 'OH MY GOD KATE GARRAWAY’S HERE' and then it wasn’t her…and then I turned around & she was sat next to me. Morto’d. Need to control my fangirling.”

What is Adele Roberts’ net worth?

According to networthpost.org Adele is worth a whopping £8.5 million, however we are sure the this is set to rise after her stay among the creepy crawlies in camp.
