EastEnders’ Molly Rainford shares why hard-working Bobby Brazier will ‘win Strictly’

The return of Strictly Come Dancing is just weeks away, and rehearsals are well underway for both the professional dancers and the cast of celebrities.

However, one of the stars of 2023, Bobby Brazier, is getting some extra training away from the dance floor from his EastEnders co-star Molly Rainford.

Molly, who joined the BBC soap earlier this year playing Anna Knight, appeared on Strictly last year and finished in sixth place with Carlos Gu.

The 22 year old has claimed that as soon as she found out that Bobby was going on the show, she tipped him to win the famous glitterball trophy.

But she has also offered to help him train, so when he does well, he can say that she taught him everything that he knows.

Molly told The Mirror: "I joked to him, ‘How about we practise together, and then you say I taught you everything you know’. So that’s what’s happening – though of course, his pro partner may say different."

Aside from helping Bobby with his moves, Molly has also shared her advice with the 20 year old.

She explained: "My advice to him was just to enjoy it, and take it all in, and to expect it to be tougher than you thought.

"The work that goes in is much more than I expected… the routine you perform on Saturday definitely doesn’t look like that on Monday."

Molly has also told Bobby to take the competition seriously, claiming that if you want head judge Shirley Ballas to notice your technique, you need to give it some "welly."

She explained that Bobby can come across as a laid-back character, but when he is on set, he is focused on getting his scenes correct.

While Molly will be throwing her support behind Bobby when the show kicks off in a couple of weeks, she has admitted that she will have a "serious" fear of missing out.

She explained that despite the process being hard work, she would still do it every year if she could.

Bobby was confirmed as one of the cast of 2023 in August, and at the time, he shared his excitement at the news.

He said: "I’m so excited to be part of the Strictly line up, I can’t wait to start training like a professional dancer and adding a few moves to my locker.

"I'm looking forward to performing in front of everyone it's going to be so much fun!"

Since then, he has been reported as the male dancer that the female professionals are fighting to be paired up with.
