Amy Dowden flooded with messages after being noticeably absent in new Strictly teaser

After show bosses released a new Strictly Come Dancing trailer, fans were quick to notice Amy Dowden was missing from the opening routine.

Confirming the teaser on Instagram, the professional dancer – who is undergoing treatment for breast cancer – took to the comments section and added a glowing heart emoji.

Strictly fans were quick to respond, with one writing: “I wish you all the best Amy.” Another said: “@amy_dowden we will miss you this year. Sending you lots of good wishes xx.” A third post read: “@amy_dowden you will be missed this year Amy but keep fighting and I’m sure all us Strictly fans will see you dancing next year.”

Although the 33-year-old won’t be teaming up with a celebrity this year, Amy hopes to star in the series. Her Strictly friends have also been incredibly supportive of her journey.

“I’ve been through a lot in my life and this is another obstacle,” she said HELLO!. “But if I stay positive and strong, I have a really good chance of getting back on the dance floor as soon as possible.”
