Bobby Brazier's EastEnders co-star supports him as he makes history on Strictly

Bobby Brazier, the youngest ever male celebrity to reach the Strictly Come Dancing final, has received a show of support from his EastEnders co-star.

The 20-year-old actor and model’s colleague, James Farrar, who plays Zack Hudson on EastEnders, appeared on the spin-off show It Takes Two to back him. Host Janette Manrara noted: “Whether he wins or not, he is still the younger male celebrity to ever get to the Strictly final. Do you think he could do something like that when he first started?”

To which James responded: “20, I just don’t believe he’s 20. He’s the most mature 20-year-old I’ve ever met.” James said: “I was out partying at that age, never able to behave, and the boy knows how to get his head down and get it done which we’ve seen at EastEnders.

“He came in, I was assigned as his mentor, and I thought ‘I’m going to have to look after this boy’ but he looks after everybody else so I’m not that surprised he’s here. He works hard and he’s very likeable and we love him.”

This comes amid rumours that Bobby’s TV presenter dad, Jeff Brazier, is keen to follow in his son’s footsteps and join the next Strictly Come Dancing cast. Jeff has been a pillar of support for Bobby as he’s competed in the BBC One dancing competition this year, watching and cheering him on as he takes part in the show.

EastEnders star Bobby, who portrays Freddie Slater in the soap, has been a sensation on the show and is set to compete in this weekend’s final. Now, whispers are circulating that the 44-year-old actor is keen to have a go on the show himself, hoping for a spot in next year’s line-up. It seems Jeff has become a massive fan of the show since his son joined, and he’s eager for his own chance to strut his stuff on the dance floor.

The Mirror shares that a telly insider revealed: “Jeff has been approached to do the show in the past, and has always said no. But supporting Bobby and watching his experience has really changed his view and he has admitted he would consider it in the future.”

“As Bobby’s dad, Jeff has had a front-row seat to everything he has been through and how transformative it has been for him,” the source added. Bobby and Dianne Buswell will compete against Corrie’s Ellie Leach and Vito Coppola and Layton Williams and Nikita Kuzmin for the iconic Glitterball Trophy on Saturday (December 16) night.
