    Jade Goody's son Bobby Brazier is the latest star to sign up for Strictly Come Dancing.

    The 20-year-old model and actor – who plays Freddie Slater in EastEnders – will take to the dancefloor for the BBC ballroom contest later this year.

    Bobby, the son of late Big Brother star Jade and Jeff Brazier, said he was "so excited" about taking part.

    As the news was announced on BBC Breakfast, Bobby was asked how he felt about doing a huge TV show like his mum.

    "You are following in her footsteps, what does that feel like?" asked host Jon Kay.

    He replied: "I don't really know.

    "I just know I am taking some of the opportunities that come my way and Strictly was always going to be a 'yes' because learning to dance was something I have always wanted to do."

    Bobby said it would also be exciting learning to perform in front of so many people.

    The star was just five when Jade died in 2009 at the age of 27 after battling cervical cancer.

    His little brother Freddie was four.

    Last year he said he didn’t miss his mum because he didn’t have long enough with her.

    “I miss what could’ve been,” he told The Face.

    Other stars waltzing onto Strictly this year include Angela Scanlon, Amanda Abbington, Angela Rippon and Nikita Kanda.

    The much-loved show returns to our TV screens later this year.
