Strictly Come Dancing finalist Bobby Brazier’s net worth and life after mum Jade’s death

Strictly Come Dancing fans will see either Bobby Brazier, Ellie Leach or Layton Williams crowned the next champion on Saturday (16 December) night.

Bobby has been partnered with Dianne Buswell, who has made it to her second final since joining as a professional dancer back in 2017.

The pair have impressed throughout, consistently scoring high across the leaderboard.

But as they gear up to take on three routines in the hope of lifting the Glitterball Trophy, we take a look inside Bobby’s life before his Strictly journey, and his current net worth.

Actor and model Bobby has been in the spotlight since a young age, as the son of two famous parents.

His dad is TV presenter Jeff Brazier, and his mum is late reality TV star, Jade Goody.

Jade, who appeared on Big Brother, died in 2009 aged 27, after being diagnosed with cervical cancer.

Bobby dedicated his Couple’s Choice dance on Strictly to Jade, which was performed to This Woman’s Work by Kate Bush.

Speaking to theDaily Mail, Jeff explained of the poignant routine: “I was nervous for him anyway, because you just are, but I was so apprehensive because Bobby hasn't necessarily shared his experience of loss publicly before.”

The soap favourite has been supported throughout by his dad and brother Freddie, as well as other close friends and family.

The 20 year old was raised in Harlow, Essex, with his younger brother Freddie, who both appeared on their mum’s Sky Living reality show as children.

He began modelling at the age of 16, signing for the Unsigned Group, which is still the agency he works with today.

Bobby worked elsewhere since leaving school too, having a job at a milkshake café and taking on an apprenticeship.

In January 2020, he made his catwalk debut, modelling for Dolce & Gabbana at Milan Fashion Week, and has since walked on London and Paris Fashion Week catwalks.

Viewers may know Bobby best from his role of Freddie Slater in EastEnders, the son of Little Mo (Kacey Ainsworth).

He joined the BBC soap in 2022, after his character was last seen on-screen as a baby in the 2000s.

Bobby quickly became a popular cast member on EastEnders and won the award for Rising Star at the 28th National Television Awards for his role earlier this year.

However, his character Freddie temporarily left the show, in a storyline that saw him released on bail for attacking evil Theo Hawthorne when he walked in on him trying to rape his cousin Stacey (Lacey Turner).

Luckily, Bobby is due to be back on-screen as cheeky Freddie in early 2024 after confirming he’d joined Strictly Come Dancing in August this year.

Elsewhere, he was seen on-screen last month as part of Channel 4’s Stand Up To Cancer star-studded special of Celebrity Gogglebox.

His various TV and modelling gigs will have landed him a fairly substantial net worth, with it only set to expand after his success on Strictly.

It’s not clear how much Bobby is worth, but famous father Jeff is estimated to have a net worth of around $10million (£7.95million) after his long-running TV career.

Bobby has been one of the most consistently high-performing contestants throughout the show, and is one of Strictly’s youngest-ever finalists.

But will he have what it takes to be crowned winner of Strictly Come Dancing 2023?
