The Welsh professional dancer, 32, took to Instagram on Wednesday morning to share her diagnosis, telling fans that she is “determined to get back on that dance floor” after receiving treatment.

Within minutes of Amy's post, messages began flooding in as the Strictly family rallied around to support Amy.

Last years Strictly champion Jowita Przystał added: "Amy !!!! I’m sending you all my love and positive energy we are here with you! you’re the strongest woman I know and I know you’ll be back on that dance floor very soon!!!! AlRrrrrright!!!!"

Amy’s fans also rushed to send their support as one said: “Oh my goodness Amy, sending you all my love and strength for you to get back on the dance floor xxx”, while another wrote: “i love you so much! the strongest woman there is, you have so much support and you are going to get through this.”

Amy is best known for being one of the talented professional dancers on Strictly, where she’s been partnered up with celebrities such as Tom Fletcher, Karim Zeroual and, most recently, EastEnders favourite James Bye.

The star detailed her cancer diagnosis in an interview with Hello! Magazine where the dancer explained how taking part in a charity trek for CoppaFeel last June actually led to her receiving her finding a lump in her breast.

Before the trek, Amy did not check her breasts but the day before she flew off on her belated honeymoon with husband Ben Jones earlier this year, she felt a hard lump in her right breast.

After monitoring the lump for a couple of weeks, Amy noticed it seemed to have grown and called her GP.

Amy received her diagnosis of grade three breast cancer just last week.

She told the publication: "Three is the most aggressive, but they feel like they've caught mine early and to not be too alarmed because grade 3 would be expected in somebody of my age."
