Strictly’s Amy Dowden feeling ‘really rough’ as she addresses hospital return

Amy was diagnosed with cancer last year

Star of Strictly Amy Dowden has shared another health update ahead of returning to hospital amid her cancer diagnosis.

The Welsh dancer announced her breast cancer diagnosis in May 2023. She underwent a mastectomy but soon after received another diagnosis. Unfortunately, she wasn’t able to compete during last year’s Strictly. However, Amy still made a few appearances.

In November, Amy rang the bell at the hospital after completing her final round of chemo.
