EastEnders star Bobby Brazier is one of the 15 celebrities who are part of the Strictly Come Dancing line-up for 2023.

The 20-year-old joined one of the nation’s most loved BBC soaps earlier this year as Freddie Slater.

When Bobby was announced as a Strictly contestant last month, he said: "I’m so excited to be part of the Strictly line-up, I can’t wait to start training like a professional dancer and adding a few moves to my locker.

“I'm looking forward to performing in-front of everyone, it's going to be so much fun!"

Aside from his acting career, Bobby is also a model who has graced the runway for world-renowned fashion house Dolce & Gabbana at Milan Fashion Week – but where does he get his many talents from?

Who is Bobby Brazier's famous mum?

Bobby is the son of TV presenter Jeff Brazier and the late Big Brother star Jade Goody.

The couple who dated from 2002 until 2004 also have another 18-year-old son called Freddie.

Sadly Jade died from cervical cancer at the age of 27 back in 2009.

Speaking in a recent interview on Good Morning Britain (GMB), Bobby revealed how his mum would feel about his acting career.

He said: “She’d be proud. Why wouldn’t she be? Anyone who loves and cares about me, all my friends and my family, they’re all proud and all supportive.

“I’m sure – well, I know – she’d be the same.”

Strictly’s Bobby Brazier leaves dad Jeff Brazier in tears at the NTAs

Last week, Bobbie received the Rising Star award at the National Television Awards (NTAs) which was voted for by the public for his role as Freddie on EastEnders.

He dedicated the award to his dad Jeff during his acceptance speech on stage, leaving the 44-year-old being comforted by his son’s fellow cast-mate and Strictly 2022 star Molly Rainford.

In his speech, he said: "This actually has very, very, very little to do with me and everything to do with my dad.

“Over the course of the last 20 years, I have consistently heard him say 'because I can'.

“It was a mantra or a moto of his, and him just saying that it's... Because I can!"
