BBC Strictly’s Amy Dowden heartbroken as she fractures foot days after finishing chemotherapy

Strictly Come Dancing star Amy Dowden has shared another devastating health blow – she has fractured her foot, ruling her out of being able to dance on the show this year.

The pro dancer was diagnosed with breast cancer earlier this year and has been going through gruelling chemotherapy but had hoped to be able to dance in an episode of Strictly before the end of the series.

However, she posted a photo of herself to Instagram looking devastated and pointing at her foot as she wrote: "Not the week I was hoping for since finishing chemo. Port out but unfortunately gained a boot for a fractured foot.

"Absolutely gutted and heartbroken as this means the plans for me to dance in the Strictly Ballroom this year are no longer possible. This is what has kept me going the past few months.

 "2023 is certainly not my year, roll on 2024 I say! #noluck #nyluckwillsoonchange #mycancerjourney #brokenfoot #fracture #heartbroken #gutted #rollon2024."
