Actress Molly Rainford from EastEnders has revealed who she will be rooting for on this season of Strictly Come Dancing, and it’s not her co-star.
The 22-year-old competed on BBC One last year and advanced all the way to the final round, competing against contestants including Helen Skelton, Fleur East, and Hamza Yassin, who won the competition alongside Jowita Pryzstal.
Although she didn’t win the trophy, Molly has acknowledged that she did win Tyler West’s heart when the famed Strictly curse struck the couple.
In the ballroom this year will be Bobby Brazier, a professional dancer, and Dianne Buswell.
Despite the fact that their characters on the soap opera share a major plot line, Molly has declared that she is not supporting that person.
Molly admitted during her appearance on Lorraine on Wednesday that her heart was “in another place.”
‘Obviously I’ve had to support castmates, but I’m team Gu forever now,’ she said to host Lorraine Kelly.
Last year, Molly was teamed with Strictly star Carlos Gu, who is now dancing with Angela Scanlon.
I kind of feel like his partner is my partner, she continued.
The fact that Carlos will be dancing with someone else may seem “weird,” but Molly continued, “I can’t wait to see what they do together.”
I had the time of my life, and as you said, I got to meet my Tyler as a result, so I’m a very lucky person. I always say I’d want to do it every year.
In an interview with Tyler, Bobby, the actor who played Freddie Slater, took a jab at Molly.
Tyler confronted Bobby, who is the son of Jeff Brazier and the late Jade Goody, on Monday’s Lorraine for kissing his “real life girlfriend.” Bobby is a member of the 2023 ensemble.
Tyler enquired as to the young man’s interest in finding love on the dancing competition: “What’s your type?”
Bobby didn’t take long to respond, saying simply, “Anna,” and the camera immediately cut to Molly’s role in the BBC serial opera.
Bobby playedfully gripped Tyler’s shoulder as Tyler responded, “I mean…” It was evident that Tyler was not impressed.
