Amy and Ben became engaged at a New Year's party at the end of 2017 and had originally set their wedding date for 25 July 2020.

On what would have been the eve of their wedding day, the dancer opened up to her fans in a heartfelt video on Instagram.

Speaking directly to the camera, the 31-year-old said: "So today should have been my last day as a Miss.

"Obviously it's not, really few mixed emotions. I should be on my way now to the cottage with my bridesmaids and my family... spending the night together playing games and probably me being really nervous… my last night as a Miss!"

The star continued: "Ben would have been on his way to the other cottage... obviously we would have stayed apart! But I guess we have all this to come. Really mixed emotions every hour... I'm thinking, 'I would have been doing this or I wonder how I would have been feeling.'"
