BBC Strictlys Amy Dowden in heartbreaking update as viewers left in tears

Amy Dowden opens up on her battle with cancer

Amy Dowden admitted it was tough being forced to go into menopause and the fear of not being able to have children.

The Strictly Come Dancing star, 33, discussed her “extremely tough” battle with breast cancer during Channel 4’s Stand Up To Cancer on Friday.

The BBC star joined presenter Davina McCall and gave further details about her breast cancer, saying it was “heartbreaking”.

Amy said: “I’ve had sepsis, blood clots, I’ve had to have hormone treatment then being put into menopause’.

“When I sat in that room and the doctor said “yes Amy you have cancer” that was one stab, and then what’s your ‘fertility plans?'”

She continued: “Because I have an oestrogen fed cancer and they need to shut my ovaries down basically, and my husband is next to me and we’ve only been married a couple of months!

“And it’s just heartbreaking and that is something I never knew, and the impact emotionally it’s just been so tough.”

Amy was officially diagnosed with the disease in May when she found a lump in her right breast in April, a day before she and her husband Ben Jones jetted off for a belated honeymoon to the Maldives after their wedding last July.

She added: “It has been the toughest year of my life but I am hoping with the surgery and chemo I have done enough.”
