Amy Dowden surprised her Strictly colleagues on the Nottingham leg of the Strictly Come Dancing Live! tour on Tuesday.

The professional dancer, 33, appeared on every series of Strictly from 2017 to 2022, before her May diagnosis meant she had to miss out on series 21.

On Tuesday, she and her husband Ben Jones visited Dianne Buswell, Nancy Xu, Vito Coppola, Carlos Gu, and Katya Jones, and promised her 650,000 Instagram followers on Wednesday that there was more to come.

The couple recently returned home from their second honeymoon in Grenada, during which Amy received luxury head massages to stimulate her hair growth. 

Amy, who married Ben in 2022, found a lump in her breast the day before she flew to the Maldives for a belated honeymoon in April 2023, and admitted the holiday was ‘clouded by cancer diagnosis.’

Amy joined Lorraine for a segment during one episode earlier in the year, in which she detailed how she was getting her ‘life back on track.’

The dancer began: ‘The past year has been tough… cancer diagnosis, treatment, a mastectomy and some set backs but I’m determined to get my life back on track. Finally, we are honeymooning in Grenada!’

She added: ‘A totally different feeling from when we were on our honeymoon in the Maldives because you [Ben] didn’t know but obviously I had this cloud over me, I was present in my first honeymoon but I really wasn’t because I found the lump, I was hiding it from Ben.

‘Before coming to Grenada, last week I had seven appointments in one week so coming here and getting some Vitamin D, escaping hospital wards and appointments and medication is just gorgeous!’

The annual Strictly tour began on January 19 and is due to conclude on February 11.

It involves the following Strictly pairs: Ellie Leach, Bobby Brazier, Annabel Croft & Graziano Di Prima, Angela Rippon & Kai Widdrington, Layton Williams & Nikita Kuzmin, Krishnan Guru-Murthy & Jowita Przystal, and Angela Scanlon. 

Layton shared bowling alley selfie to his Instagram Story on Wednesday with Nikita and another visitor to the tour: Tilly Ramsay. 

The talk of the tour has been the relationship between former Coronation Street actress Ellie, 22, who won Strictly in December with Vito, and EastEnders actor Bobby, 20.
