Strictly Come Dancing star Amy Dowden has been given positive news about her breast cancer

Strictly Come Dancing professional Amy Dowden has revealed to her Instagram followers she was given the good news that “no evidence” of her breast cancer disease was detected at her latest scan.

Dowden has been battling breast cancer for the past year after finding a lump just one day before heading on her honeymoon with her husband Ben Jones.

Updating her Instagram followers tonight, she revealed the good news that she was on the road to full recovery and posted an image of her posing in the sunshine.

Captioning the image, she revealed: “NO EVIDENCE OF DISEASE! Words I dreamed of! My biggest accomplishment yet!”

“I won’t be getting the all clear for 5 years especially with a hormone fed cancer. But it was all worth it. Words I never thought I’d hear at one point.

"So grateful for all the care I received and continue to have. To my husband, family and friends who supported me unconditionally and to you guys! Thank you!”

She continued: “I will still need a monthly injection for 5 years and regular check ups. Chemo and this past year has certainly took its toll on my body both physically and mentally, so I’ll be taking the next few months to heal and recover.

“I have so much to strive and live for, and so grateful for another chance at life! Something I know not all get. I certainly see life differently and my life has changed forever!

“Cancer affects too many so I will continue to do all I can to raise awareness and make sure I get as many as I can to #checkthemselves.

“It’s time to look ahead after what’s been the toughest year, and one I certainly didn’t expect! Dance floor I’m coming for you! Welsh love, always Amy,” she signed off.
