Amy has been sharing regular updates on her chemotherapy treatment with fans, and in her Instagram Stories yesterday (August 30), she said she was attending Strictly rehearsals on the day before her next session.
The star – who recently enjoyed a reunion with her fellow pros – later shared a post on her main page, explaining that it was "just what [she] needed" ahead of the chemotherapy.
"So grateful for my @bbcstrictly family, yesterday was just what I needed ahead of today," Amy wrote. "I've felt part of the whole journey so far! I've seen all the group numbers and the process by videos, then again watching yesterday and WOW honestly the best yet!
"Yes it's hard not being up there with them doing what I love but so proud to part of such a talented team. I loved being made glamorous by the hair and make up team, putting on a sparkly dress from Wardrope and feeling like Amy again being at my favourite place! So very grateful!
"Now I'm on way to chemo number 3! Let's hope no hospital admissions and scares after this one," the star added. "But I'm going with a spring in my step this morning after yesterday and knowing everyday I'm closer to dancing on that floor again."
The update comes after Amy revealed this week that she had to have treatment for sepsis earlier in August after getting an infection prior to starting chemotherapy.
"I wasn't feeling too bad that day, just sick, but a couple of hours later I started having a temperature," she told Hello!, admitting she was hesitant to go to A&E over her lowered immune system. She eventually agreed to go, and her body thankfully responded to treatment.
"The doctors and nurses were telling me I had sepsis and that it was life-threatening," Amy added. "But I wasn't taking it in. I didn't become properly aware until later."
