Strictly Come Dancing star Bobby Brazier has shut down rumours that he'll be joining the cast of ITV's Celebrity Big Brother.

Responding to the suggestion that he could be one of the contestants on the rebooted spin-off, he told Woman Magazine: "Absolutely not."

He continued: "I want to be an actor. Why would I do that when I've got EastEnders and other potential acting roles to think about.

"I want to be taken seriously as an actor."

Brazier is the son of late Big Brother star Jade Goody, who rose to fame after appearing on the series in 2002.

She later went back into the house for the celebrity version in 2007, which saw her embroiled in a racism row with winning contestant Shilpa Shetty. Goody passed away in 2009 after a battle with cervical cancer.

Brazier has found fame playing the role of Freddie Slater on BBC One soap EastEnders as well as finishing runner-up on 2023's edition of Strictly Come Dancing alongside professional partner Dianne Buswell.

Meanwhile, Celebrity Big Brother is set to kick off this March after a successful reboot of the main series last year.

Rumours regarding the potential cast have been doing the rounds since the series was confirmed, with Love Island's Chloe Burrows, Strictly Come Dancing judge Shirley Ballas, and Levi Roots all reportedly in the running to appear.

The show will also get a huge eviction shake-up with host Will Best revealing there will be two live evictions a week.

"It's going to be two evictions a week. We're going to get to have double the time together," he told The Sun.

Celebrity Big Brother kicks off March 4 on ITV and ITVX, and STV in Scotland.
