“Last appointment before Christmas!” Dowden shared, expressing her excitement. She mentioned that she and Jones were on their way to a Christmas party with the teachers from their dance studio, Art in Motion Dance Academy. Dowden added, “Rrrrrrready to spend Christmas with my loved ones.”

In a delightful surprise earlier this month, Dowden briefly returned to Strictly Come Dancing, participating in a group performance during the show’s finale.

After the emotional moment, which received praise from fans on social media, the professional dancer expressed her gratitude on Instagram, thanking the show for helping her feel “like Amy” again.

“To have that adrenaline rush from performing in front of an audience, to be back with the gang made me feel like Amy again (the first time since my diagnosis),” she wrote.

“Thank you @bbcstrictly for helping me through these past few months. You’ve helped me more than you will ever know! This show certainly brings joy to the nation.

“It’s bittersweet coming to the end for me as this has been my only bit of normality the past few months and given me the distraction and focus to be there on Saturdays when I could with the team. My heart couldn’t be more full than it is for this show and everyone involved.”
