Strictly Come Dancing professional Amy Dowden has said her body “shut down” due to Crohn’s disease.

The dancer, who has been on BBC One’s flagship dancing series since 2015, was diagnosed with the condition as a child.

She told This Morning’s Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby how she changed from a “bubbly child” to a listless one.
