Claudia Winkleman orders ‘give him the trophy’ as she predicts Strictly win | TV & Radio | Showbiz & TV
Strictly Come Dancing presenter Claudia Winkleman gave her prediction for this year’s winner, ordering for them to be given the Glitterball Trophy already.
The unforgettable BBC series is back with more glitter, drama, and epic dance routines expected in the next couple of months.
In the launch episode this evening [Saturday, September 16], fans were introduced to the celebrity line-up and their professional dance partners.
Among those is actor and model Bobby Brazier who has been starring in EastEnders as Freddie Slater for the past year.
He admitted to having never previously watched Strictly and Claudia couldn’t help but poke fun at the 20-year-old.
During an interview with some of the stars, Claudia’s attention turned to Bobby, starting off with a joke about his lack of knowledge of the show.
She teased: “Bobby, welcome, I know you haven’t seen the show.
“I’m Claudia and this is Tess. There is dancing.”
But what she wasn’t expecting was the actor’s sweet reaction as he giggled, Bobby took Claudia’s hand and said, “You’re both lovely”.
Claudia and Tess couldn’t help but swoon at his adorable reaction with the former bowing her head and holding onto his arm.
She then joked: “Give him the trophy, fast forward guys.”
Fans also couldn’t help but fall in love with the EastEnders star after his sweet comment to the presenters.
One viewer posted on X, formerly known as Twitter: “Bobby Brazier is so sweet and adorable”.
Another wrote: “I’ve never seen him before and know I need to catch up on his NTA speech, but I must say, I’m a little bit in love with Bobby Brazier already.”
While a third commented: “He is just so lovely and honestly comes across so well mannered and an impeccable gentleman always thanking everyone. A lovely young man.”
Bobby was partnered up with professional dancer Dianne Buswell, but is he going to keep on impressing viewers and judges alike?
Strictly Come Dancing continues next Saturday, September 23, at 6.15pm on BBC One.
