Amy Dowden has been seen for the first time since speaking out about her breast cancer diagnosis.
The Strictly Come Dancing pro shared a number of snaps with her 353,000 Instagram followers this afternoon.
The 32-year-old put on a brave face in light of her health news to mark her nephew’s first birthday.
The dancer was seen cuddling up to the youngster in two adorable pictures online.
It comes just four days after Amy broke the sad news that she had cancer to fans.

Wearing her hair tied back, she looked chic and casual in a white embroidered top.
The BBC regular teamed her look with khaki bottoms, sunglasses and delicate silver jewellery.
She posed with the birthday boy, who looked incredibly cute in green shorts, a matching bow tie and braces.
Amy captioned her uploads: “Our darling nephew Jacob is 1! Got him his first set of wheels.
“But he’s more impressed with soaking his outfit with his outdoor rain forest water table!
“We love you Jacob! Happy first birthday party darling.”
She was quickly inundated with comments and well wishes, with co-star Dianne Buswell replying with four heart emojis.
Fellow BBC dancer Nancy Xu did the same, while ex-show contestant Sara Davies said: “Omg he’s looking so grown up! Where has that year gone?”(sic)
On Wednesday, Amy took to the picture-sharing app with a sad announcement.
She wrote: “Hey all, I’ve got some news which isn’t easy to share.
“I’ve recently been diagnosed with breast cancer but I’m determined to get back on that dance floor before you know it.”
In an interview with HELLO!, Amy recalled how she found a lump in her breast before going on a honeymoon with her husband Ben Jones.
The star, who has the chronic gut condition Crohn’s Disease, told the publication: “They feel like they’ve caught mine early and to not be too alarmed because grade 3 would be expected in somebody of my age.”
