Strictly's Amy Dowden has shown off her brand new wig, amid her chemotherapy treatment as she battles breast cancer.
The 33 year old ballroom star announced her diagnosis in May of this year, as doctors told her she had stage three breast cancer, but she vowed to "get back on that dance floor".
Amy has bravely been sharing on social media about her battle with the disease, and she was full of praise for Be Unique Wigs By Charlotte, who posted about making her a wig.
Charlotte and Amy posted a screenshot of their messages, as Amy thanked her for making the wig, saying: "Omg I love her," before asking if she could have another one made.
Over the top of the screenshot, Charlotte wrote: "I've been working on a wig for the beautiful @amy_dowden and just received this lovely message from her!
"It was an honour to make it for you."
Charlotte went on to share a video of the wig, which is a stunning honey brown colour – and it was then shared by Amy on her own Instagram page.
Amy, who hails from Wales, shared the devastating news of her cancer diagnosis on Instagram in May.
In a post, she wrote: "Hey all, I've got some news to share which isn't easy. I've recently been diagnosed with breast cancer but I'm determined to get back on that dance floor before you know it."
She signed off the post: "Welsh love, Amy x."
The dancer has previously explained how taking part in a charity trek for CoppaFeel last June led to her receiving her own diagnosis.
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.
In early August, Amy took to Instagram again to share some snaps of herself after undergoing her first round of chemotherapy.
She was pictured in a hospital bed, wearing a 'cold cap' as she bravely smiled for the camera.
Amy captioned the post: "Chemo 1 done! I looked worse going in than coming out actually. I didn’t sleep, I got there and I just burst into tears, luckily my pink sister made sure I walked in and helped me through it and distracted from the brain freeze of the cold cap. ( wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be!)
"Thank you @jenny.markey not sure what I would do without you! Lucky to have you! Red Devil went in, had another cry but I’ve left knowing chemo 1 done and not as bad as I thought. This is due to the incredible team and nurses! Thank you NHS! Hopefully not too many side affects. One step closer to being back on the dance floor. (that’s what’s hurting the most right now, I’d do anything to be there with my fellow strictly pros right now). But for now chemo 1."
