Amy Dowden is cancer-free.

The 33-year-old TV star - who is best known for her appearances on 'Strictly Come Dancing' - has revealed via social media that she's been given the all-clear by her doctors.

Amy - who was diagnosed with breast cancer last year - wrote on Instagram: "NO EVIDENCE OF DISEASE! Words I dreamed of! My biggest accomplishment yet!

"I won’t be getting the all clear for 5 years especially with a hormone fed cancer. But it was all worth it. Words I never thought I’d hear at one point.

"So grateful for all the care I received and continue to have.

"To my husband, family and friends who supported me unconditionally and to you guys! Thank you! (sic)"

Amy will still need to undergo treatment, but she's now looking forward to the future with a renewed sense of optimism.

She said: "I will still need a monthly injection for 5 years and regular check ups.

"Chemo and this past year has certainly took its toll on my body both physically and mentally, so I’ll be taking the next few months to heal and recover.

"I have so much to strive and live for, and so grateful for another chance at life! Something I know not all get. I certainly see life differently and my life has changed forever!

"Cancer affects too many so I will continue to do all I can to raise awareness and make sure I get as many as I can to #checkthemselves.

"It’s time to look ahead after what’s been the toughest year, and one I certainly didn’t expect!

"Dance floor I’m coming for you! Welsh love, always Amy x (sic)"
