Strictly Amy: Crohn’s and Me – 27 August 2021 – 27/8/2021 – Friday – BBC

Strictly Come Dancing professional Amy Dowden opens up about her battle with Crohn’s disease. Amy’s chronic bowel condition was a secret she’d keep out of the professional spotlight for fear of it overshadowing her success. But now, for the first time, the Welsh dancing star shows us the brutal reality of living with this disease. As she embarks on the busiest professional and personal few months of her life – from the UK Strictly Tour to her debut solo dance show and summer wedding – Amy is hospitalised due to her illness at the height of the coronavirus pandemic.

In this authored documentary, Amy reveals what it is like to live with a chronic condition and the effect it has on her career as a dancer. She also hears about the severe impact this incurable disease has had on others.
