In real life, Bobby took a break to complete on this year’s Strictly Come Dancing. For the 21st series, Bobby is partnered up with Dianne Buswell and the pair have been setting the dance floor on fire over the weeks.

So much so, that they have marked themselves as strong contenders to bag this year's Glitterball trophy. However, amid his success on Strictly, viewers have been longing for Bobby to head back to EastEnders.

But now, some fans have now rumbled when Bobby could come back to the famous square. And they are not happy.

This week, the full line-up of the Strictly Come Dancing 2024 tour was revealed. The likes of Angela Scanlon, Krishnan Guru-Murthy and Ellie Leach will be strutting their stuff across arenas next year.

Bobby is also one of the 2024 stars taking part in the 30 sparkle-filled shows kicking off in January 2024. But due to Bobby now taking part in the Strictly tour next year. fans think it will postpone his return to EastEnders. On X, formerly known as Twitter, one person said: “Good for Bobby. Bad for EastEnders lol.”

They added: “Guess we won’t see Freddie till April at the earliest.” Someone else added: “My bet is he won’t be back for a while.”

Last weekend on Strictly, Bobby and partner Dianne paid tribute to his late mum Jade Goody. The pair put on an emotional performance with their Couple's Choice routine to This Woman’s Work by Maxwell.

The track, This Woman’s Work by Maxwell, left a lasting impression on Bobby when he was a young boy. Explaining the significance of the song, Bobby said before the show: "To me, this song is just perfect. My dad used to play it when I was young, maybe about eight or nine, and it was really impactful for me."

Bobby continued: "The lyrics are really profound. Maxwell sings, ‘I should be crying, but I just can’t let it show’, and when I was younger, I’d never cry… I’d never let myself feel vulnerable enough.

"Those lyrics were the only thing that did make me cry because I knew they were so true. At the time, it was easier to be angry or resentful or fearful. I have definitely learned to let go of the anger now. I don’t want to be angry. Why would I?"
