Amy Dowden Engaged-To-Get-Married, Partner & Exclusive Bio

Amy Dowden is a professional dancer who got her fame appearing in the 2017 season of Strictly Come Dancing. She appeared on Strictly Come Dancing in 2017 and 2018. But, even though her journey on the show was cut short in 2017 and 2018, she showed even more graceful and a perfectionist dance in the show's 2019 season.

Furthermore, Amy, who is originally from Welsh, is the British National Champion of 2017 and also remains as one of the highest-ranking Ballroom and Latin American dancers in the UK.

Amy loved dancing from an early age; hence, she started at the age of eight. Since then, she has come a long way in her career and established herself as a prominent and famous professional dancer in the UK.

Is Amy Dating Or Married?

The Strictly Come Dancing star does have a partner, who was a fellow dancer on the show. He is none other than Ben Jones. The two first met and got together since 2012. But, it was not until the New Year’s Eve of 2018 that the duo got engaged. 

While proposing, Ben gave Amy a beautiful round cut diamond ring in a prong setting and with a platinum ring. The ring, of course, matched the elegance of the Strictly Come dancer.

Now, as of 2020, the duo seems to be in a rush to make their wedding as perfect as they can. 

Speaking of the big day, the dancer had announced through her Instagram in July of 2019 that the wedding was to be held exactly a year after the post. 

Is Amy Victim Of Strictly Curse?

Amy also added the name of her Strictly Come Dancing partner Karim Zeroual at her big day. Some fans were concerned as they believed that the “Strictly Curse” has hit the two partners. (Strictly curse is a term created due to at least one couple in the show’s every season breaking up with their significant other and dating their dance partners instead.)

But, luckily for Amy and Karim, Karim said he is very busy learning the waltz to focus on such things as a curse. Amy, on the other hand, considered Karim as her brother, so there is no chance of the infamous curse getting to the dance partners.
