Jeff Brazier heaps praise on Strictly star son Bobby as he opens up on ‘beautiful memories’

Jeff Brazier is one proud dad as he gushed about his 20 year old son Bobby Brazier, who is currently starring on Strictly Come Dancing.

Bobby, who plays Freddie Slater on EastEnders, stunned the judges and audiences once again with his pro partner Dianne Buswell on Saturday night, 7 October.

The pair did a Samba to Young Hearts Run Free from the film Romeo + Juliet, for Movie Night week.

Due to work commitments, Bobby's TV presenter dad Jeff, 44, wasn't there in the audience to see Bobby perform, however, his younger son Freddie, 19, and Bobby's best pal were there to cheer him on.

Later in the evening, Jeff took to Instagram to share a video of the five things that he was grateful for that day as he spoke about Bobby's latest performance and spoke about making 'beautiful, priceless memories'.

Speaking to the camera, Jeff said: "I was really grateful to learn that Bobby had done really good on his routine – another good score, another good week.

"That he enjoyed it so much and to see him perform with such joy in his face, it just makes me so proud, and I'm really grateful to Dianne [Buswell] for being the energy that keeps him going, and what a wonderful team they are."

Jeff continued: "I'm really grateful that Fred went to watch his brother tonight with Luke, his best mate, and I'm grateful that they both came home and we sat on the sofa and watched Bob's routine, Eddie's routine and a few others and debriefed and shared it together. Just beautiful, priceless memories for us. We're all really proud and we're all really happy at the moment, so long may that continue."

Jeff has raised his sons alone after their mother, Jade Goody, tragically died from cervical cancer in 2009.

His fans rushed to praise him in the comments section of the post. One said: "You must be the proudest dad you have done amazing with your boys. They are both such lovely young men well done to you you’ve done there mum proud. Keep being you and guiding them one right direction."

Another gushed: "Bobby is so wonderful in all he says you should be so proud of him and as for his smile. So lovely to see a young man express his feelings too."

A third commented: "Gratitude lists are heartwarming and show good character and a good heart. Bobby is doing a great job, he is such a breath of fresh air."

Bobby and Dianne scored an impressive 32 out of 40 points for their Movie Night performance, with the judges gushing about Bobby's hip movements.

Head Judge Shirley Ballas told Bobby that he'd "brought some rhythm in that pelvis this evening" and praised him while Anton Du Beke added: ‘You have some sort of double-jointed trick pelvis. It was remarkable – I loved it."

And Motsi Mabuse gushed: "You were enjoying that so much – it wasn’t even about pleasing us!"
