Following the success of his Strictly Come Dancing stint, Bobby Brazier is being considered to host a travel programme with his father.
The EastEnders actress, 20, made it all the way to the final of the long-running dancing competition, which Ellie Leach won over the weekend.
However, as one of the show’s standout performers, offers are already pouring in for the young actor.
Bobby, who was teamed with professional dancer Dianne Buswell, is being considered by the BBC for a travelogue programme alongside his father, Jeff Brazier, 44.
According to a source, Bobby, son of late Big Brother star Jade Goody, is also being flooded with offers to act in West End productions, sign record agreements, and make commercial appearances shortly.
‘From the start of Strictly, Beeb bosses realised that they had a serious star on their hands – and the fact that he made it to the final was a complete bonus,’ they said.
‘So, they’re incredibly keen to keep him with the Corporation, not least because Bobby is seen as home-grown talent as he got his big TV break on EastEnders.
‘The travelogue show would be a shrewd way to tempt him to stay with the Beeb and is likely to be among the first of many projects they’ll tempt him with – many with a fat pay cheque too,’ they added when speaking to The Sun.
They continued: ‘Involving dad Jeff is also a smart idea as his profile has been raised enormously by appearing in the Strictly audience for the past three months.
‘The bond between Brazier junior and senior is obvious to everyone and bosses are keen to tap into that.’
Bobby began his modelling career in 2020, with his runway debut at Milan Fashion Week.
Then, last year, he joined the BBC serial EastEnders as Freddie Slater, a role that earned him the Rising Star National Television Award earlier this year.
The father and kid also featured on a recent edition of Gogglebox as part of a charity special called Stand Up to Cancer.
Jeff paid respect to his son and the hard effort he’d put into the competition ahead of the Strictly finals.
Jeff shared a series of images of Bobby at various periods in his career, saying he wanted Bobby to’soak up every last drop’ of the experience.
‘One last push @bobbybrazier! I know you want this experience to carry on forever but nothing you love ever ends, it just becomes the platform from which you take the next step to add to the wonderful memories you’ve already made for yourself,’ he wrote.
‘For what it’s worth most of us could only dream of doing some of the things you’ve already packed in to the 4 years since you left school! Proud is not the word!’
He went on to say Bobby had ‘earnt the right to be there’.
Strictly Come Dancing is streaming on BBC iPlayer.
