Amy, who became firm friends with the Fletchers during Tom's time on the show, was also cared for by Tom's fellow former contestant Sara Davies while her fiance and fellow dancer Ben Jones was away.

"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.

Between bouts of illness, which started at the age of 11, she was determined to achieve her ambition to be a professional dancer.

Crohn's Disease is a lifelong condition where parts of the digestive system become inflamed.

Tom and Amy were the eighth pairing to be eliminated from Strictly Come Dancing on November 21.

Their final dance on the BBC dance show was to On My Own from Les Misérables.

Amy said as they departed the dance floor: "The whole Fletcher family, they welcomed me in with opened arms and honestly I couldn’t have wished for a better time.

"These memories are going to live with me for the rest of my life, and I’m telling you this now, the Fletchers are not getting rid of Amy.”
