Strictly Come Dancing star Bobby Brazier has revealed whether or not he will be returning to EastEnders after his time on the BBC reality series is up. 

Brazier plays the role of Freddie Slater in EastEnders but was forced to take a break from the BBC soap while competing on Strictly.

The 20-year-old, who is paired with professional dancer Dianne Buswell, has made it to the final four pairs and is just one week away from making the final of Strictly Come Dancing 2023.

Now Brazier - who is the son of TV presenter Jeff Brazier and the late Jade Goody (who rose to fame on Big Brother) - has opened up on his future on EastEnders once he has finished on Strictly.

Speaking to heat, he said: "I'm going back. I don't know when or how but I am going back after the Strictly tour.

"I miss everyone and I miss acting. Every so often, a dance will feel like a scene - like when I was being Patrick Swayze [in Movies Week] - and it feels like I'm stepping into a role, which makes me miss work."

But it may not be that simple, as The Sun reports EastEnders bosses may have a fight on their hands with Brazier's appearance on Strictly catching the eye of music labels who are touting him as "the next Harry Styles".

A source, speaking to The Sun, said: "Bobby has caught the attention of major music labels who have spotted his ability and appeal across the board — from young people to families.

“People at labels including Universal and Sony have talked about Bobby.

"Some think he could be the next Harry Styles if they market him properly.

“Bobby has shown an amazing ability to connect with an audience and there is real hype around him."

Strictly Come Dancing returns on BBC One and iPlayer again on Saturday (December 9) at 6.30pm.
