Bobby Brazier on his first week of Strictly
Strictly Come Dancing star Bobby Brazier, who is being touted as the favourite to bag the coveted Glitterball on the BBC One show, suffered a crushing blow at the Inside Soap Awards 2023.
Bobby lost the Best Newcomer Award to Channique Sterling-Brown, who plays Dee-Dee Bailey in Coronation Street.
Bobby, who bagged the Rising Star Nation Television Award for his role as Freddie Slater on EastEnders, last month is likely to be disheartened by the loss as it was solely voted for by fans.
The young actor is the bookies’ favourite to win Strictly and has seen a rise in popularity since he joined Eastenders last year.

The Inside Soap Awards 2023 took place this evening, September 25t, and while Bobby didn’t win for his soap, EastEnders still dominated with awards, including Best Actress to Danielle Harold, Best Actor Jamie Borthwick and Best Young Performer Isabella Brown.
Bobby, however, can seek comfort in having impressed Strictly viewers on Saturday night when he took to the ballroom for his dance debut. He had even left his father Jeff Brazier tearful with pride.
Pro dancer Dianne Buswell and Bobby performed the Foxtrot to McFly’s, It’s All About You, on Saturday night, which gave the judges “goosebumps”.
Bobby joked that Dianne was going to be an auntie figure for his children as she gave him a huge hug.

The 20-year-old scored 29 points for his performance as he joked he was going to “miss the Foxtrot”.
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “The latest figures suggest Bobby Brazier is very much the one to beat.”
He added: “Krishnan Guru-Murthy has been dealt with a double-crushing blow, though…
“Not only is he the rank outsider to go all the way this year, he’s also had the backing of just 1.4 per cent of punters up to this point.”
