The dancer shared a stunning video, fittingly set to the tune of Madonna's Holiday and it showed her and her new hubby enjoying their adventure in Crete. The pair drank fancy cocktails, dined on exquisite food and even braved a speedboat and snorkelling tour. But there was plenty of time for relaxation, as Amy also showed off the pair's breathtaking pool at their hotel.

Amy and Ben married on 2 July

In a statement, Will said: "I'm honestly so chuffed to be taking part in Strictly Come Dancing this year! Not going to lie, it's totally out of my comfort zone and I know it will be a huge challenge but that's what life is all about.

"This is also my Mum's favourite show and she's had a really tough few years so I’m doing this is for her as well. Bring it on!"
