Getting Personal with Daphne Bugler and Isabella Hobbs


with Amy Dowden

Season 2, Ep. 1

We're back! To kick off our second season of 'Getting Personal' we're joined by the one and only Amy Dowden. In the middle of the UK's third lockdown, we had a wonderful chat with Amy over Zoom which is definitely one for all of the Strictly Come Dancing fans out there.

We chatted all things Strictly with Amy, from what it was like to film during lockdown and bubble up with her partner, to her memories with her fellow professional dancers and how it feels to be judged on national television. We also chatted about her career highlights and how she found love through dance. Last year, Amy also released a documentary with the BBC titled 'Strictly Amy: Crohn's and Me' which detailed her experience living with Crohn's disease. Amy shared with us what it was like to be so vulnerable and how she felt sharing her story with the nation.

Head over to BBC iPlayer to watch Amy's documentary here, and you can also learn more about Crohn's at
