Jade Goody’s son set to appear on Strictly Come Dancing

Eastenders star and the son of the late Jade Goody, Bobby Brazier, is set to appear on Strictly Come Dancing’s new season.

The 20-year-old rose to fame after playing Freddie Slater on the BBC soap, but most people know him from his famous parents Jeff Brazier and the late Jade Goody.

Now set to show off his dancing skills on the BBC reality series, the actor 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!” Bobby added.

Bobby isn’t the only star announced for this season as Irish TV presenter Angela Scanlon has also been announced to be appearing on the show.

She said: “Terrified and excited, it turns out I’m not good at keeping a secret. But it’s also very real all of a sudden.”

Also joining the line up is Love Island star Zara McDermott, who said: “I am so excited to be joining the world of Strictly! I grew up watching it every year with my nan.

“I even remember the first ever series, and being mesmerised by all the beautiful dresses! I can’t wait to throw myself into this experience and start training. It’s going to be incredible.”

Emmerdale star Adam Thomas, presenter Nikita Kanda, comedian Eddie Kadi, and actress Amanda Abbington, TV presenter Angela Rippon, actor Layton Williams and news anchor Krishnan Guru-Murthy are also set to show off their dancing skills this year.
