Former champion dancer and Strictly personality Amy Dowden started suffering debilitating attacks on her health when she was 11, causing her to be in and out of hospital regularly. Eight years later, it was diagnosed as Crohn’s Disease. She went public about her Crohn’s to help raise awareness to the condition and to show other sufferers what was possible. “It would be easy to give up when you’re having a rotten time, but talking about it has taken a weight off my shoulders. I fill my life with things I love doing and that helps keep me positive. Dancing took me away from all my worries, stresses and pain.”
