STRICTLY dancer Amy Dowden is set to spotlight her battle with cancer on a BBC show.
Cameras have followed the 32-year-old ballroom pro since she was diagnosed with third-degree breast cancer in May – after discovering a lump the day before she flew to the Maldives on her honeymoon.
Amy has since undergone a mastectomy in July and chemotherapy which started this month – all being filmed for the upcoming documentary.
The brave Welsh star has allowed a BBC film crew to follow her treatment in hopes of raising awareness.
A TV source said: “Amy’s battle with breast cancer has already inspired millions of Strictly fans, but she wants to do more.”
“She shared each stage online to remind everyone to check her breasts and the film takes it a step further.
“The result will be a raw but sensitive film as Amy regains her fitness – and resumes her beloved dance.”
Amy’s diagnosis means she won’t be able to attend Strictly this year.
However, that didn’t stop her from attending her first day of rehearsals for the 2023 series this month with her fellow dancers.
She shared a photo of the meeting with the caption, “Just what I needed.”
Amy said: “I’ve been through a lot in my life and that’s another hurdle.
“But if I’m positive and strong, I have a really good chance of getting back on the dance floor as soon as possible.
“The BBC was just absolutely amazing.”
Amy said she hopes to get another role on Strictly this year.
The documentary for BBC Wales will be her second following 2020’s Strictly Amy: Crohn’s and Me.
The Caerphilly-born dancer highlighted the chronic bowel disease that has impacted her life and career since she was 19.
