Bobby Brazier has to do chores like laundry and cooking when he’s not working on his Strictly routines as his dad wants to make sure he stays “grounded”.

The 19-year-old – son of Jeff Brazier and late Big Brother star Jade Goody – is competing in the current series of the BBC ballroom contest and has also enjoyed fame as a model and as Freddie Slater in EastEnders.

The teenager is riding high right now, scooping the Rising Star gong at September's National Television Awards as well as winning thousands of new fans on the dancefloor, and dad Jeff told OK! that he was "sort of made to be front and centre".

But he said that making sure Bobby remains “humble” is a “big role” for him.

"As much as Bobby's a dancer on Strictly these days, when he comes home, there's a wash in the tumble dryer that I want him to fold up, or I want him to help me to make dinner,” he told the magazine

“I need to make sure Bob has a balance and doesn't necessarily let himself float away,” he added.

Bobby is paired with pro Dianne Buswell on Strictly and so far many viewers think he is one of the celebs who will go far in the competition.
