Strictly pro Amy Dowden living with Tom Fletcher after emergency hospital dash

Amy Dowden has revealed she was rushed to hospital after suffering a medical emergency, which left her with no choice but to pull out of Strictly Come Dancing on Saturday evening.

The 31 year old, who is engaged to Ben Jones and is due to marry next year, took to her Instagram feed to open up about the terrifying ordeal with her 300,000 followers.

The professional dancer first shared a series of snaps from the last few days, including one of herself with Tom Fletcher and his wife Giovanni, both 36, a few of her time in their home as well as snaps from her hospital bed.

In the caption, she opened up on what exactly happened as 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."

Crohn's disease is a long-term condition where the gut becomes inflamed. The exact cause of it is unknown and common symptoms include stomach aches and cramps.

She continued: "I’m recovering very well and certainly being well looked after and look forward to returning to the dance floor."

Amy, who recently said the show has been her "saviour" amid her Crohn's battle, went on to share her gratitude towards Tom as well as Dragon's Den star Sara Davies, 37, for their help while her fiancé Ben was away.

She wrote: "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 [laughing emoji] you could possibly need, lots of drawings and pretend injections from my new doctors Buzz, Buddy and Max.
