Amy Dowden has rung the bell to mark the end of her chemotherapy treatment

The 33-year-old 'Strictly Come Dancing' star was diagnosed with breast cancer in May and she has been undergoing treatment for the last few months, however she was able to celebrate this week after reaching the end of her chemo sessions which she marked by ringing the bell as hospital staff clapped and cheered.

She shared a video of the emotional moment on Instagram and wrote: "I rang the bell and I’m so thankful I got too! My toughest journey yet! These past few months I look back and think how did my body get through this both physically and mentally. From the words I’m so sorry Amy, it’s cancer and what’s your fertility plans. To having a mastectomy, two weeks later hormone daily injections for egg retrieval, a little Crohns flare up and then on to chemo plus shutting down my ovaries on the same day which sadly lead to sepsis, blood clots, losing my eyebrows, lashes (I have a few hanging in there) and three toe nails.

"But also it’s taken away my love of life these past few months and of course my DANCING!"

She added: "It’s been tough. But hopefully has now given me chance of more life which I’m eternally grateful for and I will never take for granted again.

"I’ll never be the same Amy again but, what I do know is I’m so much stronger than I ever knew and I have made the most amazing friends along the way.

"I hate looking in the mirror at the moment but I know this is a small price to pay and ‘this too shall pass’.

"I’m so grateful to the wonderful Sheldon oncology unit and my family and friends who have been there endlessly for Ben and I. We did it!"

She ended her post by revealing she now has to have a scan to see if she will need any more surgery, but she's happy to have concluded the chemotherapy stage of her treatment.

Amy added: "All though my journey isn’t over yet, this day of ringing the chemo bell felt like an endless distance away and at points I thought I’d never make it to. I’m so proud of myself.

"I now await an MRI to determine if I need more surgery but for now I’m celebrating my chemo journey coming to an end. "Thank you all for your love and support along the way. My dancing shoes are warming up and I can’t wait to get back in the training room! Now please remember to check yourselves, if you aren’t who is?"
