Amy recently explained to social media: “I won’t be getting the all clear for five years – especially with a hormone-fed cancer – but it was all worth it.”

Speaking on Lorraine, she added: “I can’t stop smiling. I’ve had a lot of bone pain in my shoulder and I do have impingement there, but at least it’s not cancer. I was so worried that it had spread to the bones. I’ve got this spring in my step, a smile on my face.

“I’ve got another shot of life. I’m so grateful and happy and I wake up every day and say thank you because not everyone gets to do it.”
