Strictly Come Dancing returned on Saturday night and with it came a touching moment to professional dancer Amy Dowden. Amy, 33 was diagnosed with breast cancer earlier this year and has been undergoing chemotherapy, so is currently unable to return to the dancefloor.
As the hit BBC dancing competition returned on Saturday, 16 September, Amy's absence didn't go unnoticed and presenters Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman paid a special tribute.
As they sat down to speak to the first few celebrities, Tess acknowledged: "We are, of course, missing one of our professional dancers.
Our gorgeous Amy Dowden is unwell and she can't be with us for the start of the series, but she's our Welsh dragon and we know she'll be back soon." Claudia continued: "Amy, from your entire Strictly family, we're sending all our love and we cannot wait to have you back on the dancefloor." Before Tess said: "This one's for you!" A dazzling performance came as the professional dancers and judges, Anton Du Beke, Shirley Ballas, Craig Revel Horwood and Motsi Mabuse paid tribute to their "Welsh dragon" on the dancefloor.Read more on ok.co.uk
