Amy Dowden's stunning NTAs outfit features nod to her cancer diagnosis

Amy Dowden arrived on the National Television Awards’ red carpet looking glorious on Tuesday and wore a breast cancer awareness pin in tribute to her diagnosis.

The Strictly star – who is undergoing her third round of chemotherapy amid her breast cancer diagnosis – looked utterly beautiful in a stunning tulle dress and beamed while posing for photographers at the star-studded bash.

Amy carried her belongings in a chic gold clutch.

Her gorgeous red carpet appearance comes hours after Amy shared a health update.

The professional dancer said she had suffered from sickness, tiredness due to steroids, hair loss and mouth ulcers but was beginning to feel like herself again after taking time off social media.

Amy began her Instagram Story on Tuesday (September 5) by explaining she had been ‘silent’ over the weekend to ‘fully recover’ after chemotherapy treatment on Thursday.

The dancer said she had suffered a ‘little bit’ of sickness and tiredness over the past few days, with steroids leaving her unable to go to sleep.

She added the steroids had resulted in her having a ‘moonface’, as the medication often causes swelling and puffiness, but that she was ‘used to it by now.’

Amy continued: ‘I’m definitely feeling more like Amy today. [My] mouth is covered in mouth ulcers and some are quite swollen. Obviously losing the hair still, and you can’t sleep because of the steroids but you’re so tired.’

‘So those are symptoms I’ve got but I’ve not ended up in hospital so far after this admission so that’s a win-win,’ Amy added in reference to contracting sepsis during her first round of chemotherapy.

Amy was treated by the Intensive Care Unit after falling ill and feeling ‘freezing cold’, while also being ‘clammy and shaking’ with medics later diagnosing her with the life-threatening condition, which happens when your immune system overreacts to an infection.

She was discharged after being hospitalised and was given the all-clear to continue with her chemotherapy treatment.
