Bobby Brazier is eager to get started on Strictly Come Dancing and can’t wait to show fans a’sexy’ performance.
The EastEnders actor, who received the Rising Star award for his work as Freddie Slater in the serial earlier this week, will be strutting his thing on the ballroom floor for the new series.
When asked what dance he’s most excited to learn, the son of late Big Brother star Jade Goody joked, ‘[The] sexual ones!’
The 20-year-old actor, who is excited to move his ‘hips and shoulders’ on the BBC programme, also dismissed any parallels between his Strictly training and life on Albert Square.
Noting he wouldn’t ‘like to compare the two’, he added to the Mirror: ‘EastEnders is great, Strictly is great – I don’t think me doing Strictly makes my time at EastEnders any better.’
Despite his early success, Bobby is able to remain grounded, which he attributes to meditation and guidance from people close to him.
‘I meditate and I try to remember things that really ground me and great things people have told me,’ he explained. ‘I read and I chant – hopefully I can keep that up.’
He’s still enjoying the accolades, and he makes a point of thanking people who have supported him along the road, particularly his father, Jeff Brazier.
‘I feel so privileged and I feel like I’m a very little part of this award. I’m blessed,’ he said of his NTAs win. ‘My dad cried, I think I’m going to cry when I see him.
‘I just want to go and give him a hug now to be honest. I just want to go and hand this award to my dad, because all because of him.’
During his emotional victory speech, he paid tribute to his father with a similar remark.
He told the audience: ‘This actually has very, very, very little to do with me and everything to do with my dad. Over the course of the last twenty 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.’
