Amy Dowden has explained her absence from Strictly Come Dancing.

The professional dancer, who was paired with McFly star Tom Fletcher, was missing from the BBC show over the weekend – sparking concern among fans.

Taking to Instagram on Monday to explain her absence, Amy revealed she had been rushed to hospital after suffering a Crohn’s 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 💖💖,” she added.
