Amy Dowden has revealed that her eyelashes have once again fallen out due to her ongoing cancer treatment. The Strictly Come Dancing star took to Instagram to give fans a health update after realising she had arrived for a routine hospital appointment an hour early.

“Good morning everyone. It's been ages since I've come on and spoke to you all, but I'm not going to lie, I've come an hour early by mistake for my blood test at the hospital so I thought, do you know what, I'm going to come on and say hello to you all,” Amy began in her video. "Excuse the wild hair. I have put this serum on it to help keep the condition a bit, but it's gone a bit curly and a bit wild. I've also lost my eyelashes again, only a few of them.

"They are growing back again, but I did read when I was having treatment quite a few posts from ladies who said that they had lost them again, like after the 12-week cycle they lost them once more. So let me know if this has happened to you. It's a little bit frustrating, but it's not the end of the world. Anyway, I didn't come on to say that to you but I got carried away."

She continued: "Actually, Dare to Dance is on tonight with Debbie and Chris. This episode is an emotional one. But it's lovely. Not saying too much, but it's a very big day and Debs and I have something in common at the time.

"Do you know what, she's just the most remarkable lady and I cannot wait for you all to get to know Debbie and Chris. And also, my buddy Dianne Buswell comes and helps us out as well, so yeah, if you can tune in tonight to watch the final episode of Dare to Dance of this series. And if you haven't seen any of them yet, you can get series one and series two on iPlayer.”

Amy gave a positive update on her cancer battle earlier this year

Amy, who was diagnosed with breast cancer last year, recently shared how doctors had found “no evidence of disease”. Announcing her positive health update in February, she told her followers: "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 family and friends who supported me unconditionally and to you guys! Thank you!" It will take five years before Amy can officially be given the all clear from cancer. You can keep up to date with the latest TV and showbiz news by signing up to the newsletter here.
