BBC Strictly’s Amy Dowden returns to screens for Celebrity Antiques Road Trip

Strictly’s Amy Dowden joins Dragons’ Den star for BBC show

Amy Dowden, 33, will be returning to screens this evening (Tuesday, November 7) as she accompanies Dragons’ Den star Sara Davies on Celebrity Antiques Road Trip on BBC Two.

The duo met when Sara was a contestant on Strictly Come Dancing in 2021 and they will be against each other alongside experts Natasha Raskin Sharp and Steven Moore to see who can make the most money at auction.

In a clip from the show ahead of its release, Amy and Sara reminisce about their friendship while driving through the Yorkshire countryside..

Sara shares: “Did you know I actually made it my mission to make you my friend?”

Amy replies: “We just hit it off though, didn’t we? We supported each other and I loved seeing you and having our debrief on a Friday in the studio.”

Sara adds: “No, no, no, it wasn’t just… I was making a beeline! I decided that the only person I was really hoping to make friends with that I hadn’t was Amy Dowden.”

Starting out in Jesmond, Amy and Sara drive to Harrogate for their auction finale after visiting a string of antiques shops in Whitley Bay, Langley Moor and Hartlepool along the way.

During their trip, they find cranberry finger bowls, boudoir chairs, Georgian shoe buckles, and a set of bronze dragon heads.

Amy was diagnosed with breast cancer earlier this year and has been sharing updates on social media as she battles the illness.

Taking to Instagram on Monday, the dancer said: “This morning I started my ‘rehab’ and I feel so good for it. I’m not going to lie, I hate looking at myself in the mirror at the moment…

“I’m losing my hair, I’ve lost all my eyelashes here… I’ve gained quite a bit of weight due to steroids… I’ve gone up two dress sizes.”

She continued: “I had my mastectomy, then I had to wait six weeks before I could exercise, then I began chemo, and then I had obviously my port fitted, I’ve had so many complications with my sepsis, my blood clots, you name it… but today I began my rehab.”

Celebrity Antiques Road Trip airs tonight at 7pm on BBC Two and iPlayer.
