Strictly’s Amy Dowden trapped in her building’s lobby: ‘Send help!’

Professional dancer and Strictly Come Dancing star Amy Dowden made a desperate plea for help via her Instagram story when she became trapped inside the lobby of her building.

Just a few hours previously the professional dancer had posted a super glam photo of herself outside drinking a coffee.

Amy posted videos on her Instagram story as she became increasingly frustrated when her automatic fob did not work in her apartment building, seeming to trap her in a stairwell.

She said: "Guys this is not a joke. I'm actually trapped. So my fob I have for my apartment doesn't work.

"This is one way out," she said pointing at a door.

She continued: ”I’ve called so many numbers and no-one is listening! Send help please!"

Amy made a number of phone calls, many of which went unanswered, until she was finally rescued.

Sharing a pic of herself with a celebratory coffee, she wrote: “Thanks for the messages. Thankfully a resident passed by. Having a well deserved Starbucks before hitting the road!”


Last month Amy and Tom Fletcher were eliminated from Strictly, which caused a big stir with fans who questioned the judges decision making.

Amy, who suffers from Crohn’s Disease, was recently rushed into hospital after a flare up. Fans noticed she was missing as even eliminated professionals still appear in the audience each week and take part in the group dances which are a key part of the Sunday night results shows.

Updating her fans from her hospital bed Amy said: "Just want to say the biggest thank you for all the lovely messages, comments and posts I've received.

"Feeling so much better and certainly feeling the love! Thank you thank you thank you!!!"

Amy also told that Tom and wife Giovanna Fletcher kindly opened up their home to her during her moment of need.


Amy shared: "I’m recovering very well and certainly being well looked after and look forward to returning to the dance floor.

"To the Fletchers who made sure I had everything and more at the hospital, have brought me back to theirs where the whole family are giving me all the love, care, burnt toast (Tom), unlimited supply [email protected] along [email protected] choice you could possibly need, lots of drawings and injections from my new doctors Buzz, Buddy and Max.

"Thank you, they really were sent to me."

The Welsh dancer opened up about her her battle with Crohn's disease in a TV documentary in 2020.

She shared that the condition – which causes inflammation and ulcers in the digestive system – has led to her being hospitalised more than 100 times.
