TV presenter Jeff Brazier and the late Jade Goody’s son, Bobby Brazier, is set to appear on the BBC soap later this year after making a name for himself in the modelling world
Bobby Brazier, the beloved TV star Jade Goody’s son, will be making his acting debut when he joins the EastEnders ensemble as Freddie Slater.
The late actor’s kid, who hasn’t been seen in Walford since the pair left to start a new life in May 2006, will reprise the role of Little Mo Slater’s son.
Bobby is presently shooting scenes that will air this fall.
Freddie, who is now 18 years old, is about to arrive on The Square and is currently engaged in a task that might lead to heartache.
Bobby expressed his excitement at joining the EastEnders cast by saying, “So far, it’s been perfect.”
“Everyone has been very lovely to me and has made adjusting here more simpler than I could have imagined. I’ve always wanted to enter the acting world, and getting the chance to do it with EastEnders as a Slater is a blessing for which I’m really thankful.
I’m enjoying Freddie well thus far and am eager to see what Walford has in store for him.
Executive Producer Chris Clenshaw continued, “Freddie Slater is a troubled 18-year-old with a tender soul.
“A modern-day lad who’s in touch with his spiritual side.
“He’s philosophical, accepting, but full of mischief and makes mistakes. Bobby is an amazing young addition to the EastEnders cast who brings heart and humility to the role of Freddie Slater and I can’t wait for audiences to get to know him.”
Bobby is gaining recognition in the world of modelling after walking for Dolce and Gabbana earlier this year.
And last month, as he posted a number of adorable throwback pictures on Instagram, Jeff Brazier, the ex-partner of Jade Goody, 43, raved about his model kid.
In the tender photos taken to commemorate the momentous occasion, TV host Jeff, who is also Jade’s brother and father to 16-year-old Freddie, looked every bit the devoted parent.
Jeff captioned the pictures with: “Happy 19th @bobbybrazier! It has been my honour to see you grow over the past 19 years, and your development has made everyone who loves about you and me feel incredibly proud of you.
“I hope it feels wonderful to know that your accomplishments, no matter how great or small, bring a lot of happiness to people, and I look forwards to lovingly supporting you through whatever comes next.”
“You deserve your opportunity since we’ve been through a lot and have come a long way.” I hope you have a happy life.”
