Amy Dowden is feeling "so much better" following her Crohn's disease flare up.
The 'Strictly Come Dancing' pro dancer has been staying with her celebrity partner Tom Fletcher and his wife Giovanna Fletcher, who have been helping to nurse her back to health after she had to be taken to hospital due to the lifelong digestive condition.
Last night (30.11.21), Amy told fans on her Instagram Stories: "Just want to say the biggest thank you for all the lovely messages, comments and posts I've received.
"Feeling so much better and certainly feeling the love! Thank you thank you thank you!!! (sic)"
Giovanna gave a further update on Amy's condition this morning (01.12.21).
Speaking on 'Lorraine', she said: "She is good. She was sat on the sofa last night. The colour is back in her cheeks.
"She has still got her hot water bottle and every now and then you can see she is in pain.
"People with Crohn's are living with pain. But it is nice to see the pink going back into her cheeks.
"We absolutely adore her. For us it is not a Strictly curse. We have actually gained a new member."
Amy thanked Tom, Giovanna, their kids Buzz, seven, Buddy, five, and three-year-old Max, and 'Strictly' contestant Sara Davies for looking after her following the flare up.
She wrote: "Thanks for the all messages over the weekend. Unfortunately, I was missing from the show as I had an unexpected Crohn’s flare up and hospital admission in which I received unbelievable care. I’m recovering very well and certainly being well looked after and look forward to returning to the dance floor. Big thanks to lovely @saradaviescc and @tomfletcher for taking care of me (of all the days to be poorly, Ben was in Blackpool with the dance school). To the Fletchers who made sure I had everything and more at the hospital, have brought me back to theirs where the whole family are giving me all the love, care, burnt toast (Tom), unlimited supply of @mrsgifletcher clothes along with @tomfletcher sock choice you could possibly need, lots of drawings and pretend injections from my new doctors Buzz, Buddy and Max. Thank you, they really were sent to me (sic)"
Amy and Tom were eliminated from 'Strictly' last month.
He said at the time: "Honestly I’ve had the best time, I’ve loved every second of it.
"I’ve made the best friend in Amy, you’ve been amazing thank you so much for teaching me how to dance, I know it was a struggle at times.
"It’s an amazing show, everyone that works on it, all of you guys have been amazing, I’ve loved getting to know you.
"Thank you so much, it’s been the best experience and I don’t regret a single minute of it, so thank you, everyone, so much. I’m gutted to leave.”
