BBC Strictly star in tears over tragic family death after Bobby Brazier’s emotional dance

Former Strictly Come Dancing pro, James Jordan was moved to tears by EastEnders actor Bobby Brazier's performance on the BBC show. The dance was a tribute to Bobby's late mum and Big Brother legend Jade Goody.

James, who often shares his thoughts on the celeb performances each week, told his 361,000 followers on X, formerly known as Twitter: "Makes me miss my dad watching that."

The pro dancer added: "Bobby F*** me – how good was that!!! Not a fan of couples choice but this year being converted when I see stuff like that. Forget the VT – this was exceptional. It told a story through dance and I just sat and enjoyed it This style suited him massively 9 – b***** loved it!"

It was an experience that others watching Strictly shared with James, as Bobby's performance got top marks from two judges and placed him second on the leaderboard. It comes after he faced the dreaded dance-off the week before in Blackpool, where he was chosen by the judges ahead of former newsreader Angela Rippon.

One Strictly viewer replied to James: "I lost my dad in July, it was a hard watch as it made me feel so sad but it was beautifully done."

Another added: "I had cancer when my kids were 8 and 11. This made me so emotional. (what could have happened). I am SO lucky (and thoroughly agree with your commentary!). Thank you!"

James shared the news of his dad's death in April 2021, writing: "My dad became an angel at 8.05am. I will forever miss him. My dad will always be my HERO. RIP Daddy. I pray to God that you come soon and make him one of your angels. He has his bags packed and is ready to go and see his mum and dad again. My dad is my hero. @BrainTumourOrg needs your support."

He also added in a candid video posted at the time: "My dad had a Stage Four brain tumour, a glioblastoma. He was diagnosed approximately one year ago, and myself and my family watched him slowly disappear. It's an absolutely horrendous, horrendous disease.

"Cancer is awful no matter which cancer it is, but brain tumour in particular takes away that person's identity a lot. Brain tumours are the biggest cancer killers in children and adults under 40, and out of £600 million which is raised currently in the UK, less than 3% of that goes to funding for brain tumour treatments."
