Strictly professional dancer Amy Dowden has revealed that she is creating five embryos with husband Ben Jones - after being told by doctors that she can no longer conceive naturally following her cancer treatment.

Amy, 33, who was diagnosed with breast cancer last May, confessed that the news wasn’t easy to take in. After her shock diagnosis, the professional dancer, 33, was told she had a two-week window for her and her partner to try and create embryos that could be frozen for future use.The Welsh star has now revealed that they were successful in doing this - but can’t try to start a family yet as it would create hormones in her body that may feed the cancer.

In good news, however, Amy - who joined Strictly in 2017 - had a recent check-up which revealed that she had 'no evidence of the disease', though she will only get the final all-clear in between four and five years.

Opening up previously about finding out she had cancer, Amy said: “'In the words of "Sorry, Amy, you have cancer", what I found harder was in the next sentence. 'You know, newly married, we'd only been married in July (2022), and this was only in the spring (2023) now. 'And his next sentence was 'And what's your fertility plans because unfortunately you've got a hormone-fed cancer' - and I never knew anything about that - and basically "We're gonna have to shut down your hormones". “I'm sat there with my husband, and obviously children were on the radar or, you know, plans.
