Strictly’s Amy Dowden cries all morning after final chemo round in cancer battle

Strictly Come Dancing favourite Amy Dowden has celebrated the end of chemotherapy as she rang the bell with two other women.

The professional dancer took to Instagram to pose outside of the hospital as she held up eight fingers and flashed a smile. She'd dressed up to keep warm in a black coat and a skirt to match as she marked the occasion.

Taking to her socials, Amy wrote on Instagram: "It's chemo number eight! The last one! We are finally here. I've cried all morning!

Right an afternoon of chemo and then I'm so lucky and grateful to be able to ring that bell. Will never take it for granted. She added: "Thank you to the incredible Sheldon Unit! You are all amazing, all true heroes. Right here goes. See you all later."

In another snap Amy posed with two other women as they posed together to ring the bell to mark the end of chemotherapy. She wrote: "Today all three of us ring that chemo bell!

"32, 35 and 26 when all diagnosed with breast cancer so please this is a note from us three to check your chest! Cancer doesn't discriminate. Our wish to you all is remember to monthly check."

Amy immediately had love flood in as her followers and friends rushed to support her. Her ex Strictly partner Tom Fletcher wrote: "Thinking of you today! Go ring that bell!!!"

Professional dancer Joanne Clifton also added a string of bell and heart emojis, while Amy's fans also shared their excitement for her. One user wrote: "Ring it loud and proud," while another said: "Almost there! Sending you all my love."

A third wrote: "This makes me so happy to see, endlessly proud of all the awareness you have made! You've got this girl go ring that bell."

Amy first told her fans that she had been diagnosed with cancer in May after explaining to Hello! magazine that she found a lump in her breast before she was going on her honeymoon.

She kept an eye on it and spoke to her GP when she got home and had a biopsy – but was warned it was suspicious and to prepare for the worst. She had grade 3 cancer which meant she needed to get on a treatment plan right away, which meant she wouldn't be on Strictly this year.

Amy has remained firmly involved with the show though and has had brief appearances to present a number of segments.
