Bobby Brazier could have just revealed his Strictly partner during NTAs moment

It was a big night for Bobby Brazier on Tuesday, with the actor picking up the gong for Rising Star at the National Television Awards in London.

And it’s gearing up to be an even bigger winter for the 20-year-old, who will appear on this year’s Strictly Come Dancing.

The celebrities taking part in Strictly 2023 have been paired with their professional partners, but said pairings have not yet been made public… although an interaction between Bobby and Dianne Buswell at Tuesday’s NTAs will no doubt spark speculation that they’ll be dancing together this season.

Following Bobby’s award win at the ceremony, 34-year-old Dianne – who looked fabulous in a green dress at the glitzy bash – was seen walking over to the EastEnders star and his dad Jeff Brazier for a chat.

What’s more, Dianne and Bobby also enjoyed a quick boogie together, with both wiggling their hips around while in each other’s company.

Could this indicate that the pair are set to compete together in a bid to win the Glitterball Trophy this year?

The late Big Brother star died of cervical cancer aged just 27 in March 2009.

Following his win, Bobby thought about how his mum would have felt could she have been there to watch him pick up his award, saying that she ‘would be proud of him, but also proud no matter what’.

During his acceptance speech, the young actor had audience members cooing as he delivered heartfelt words, including a heartfelt tribute to his dad.
