EastEnders' Bobby Brazier lifts lid on first Strictly training day
Brazier took to Instagram to share his experience.
In a video on his Instagram story, Brazier revealed that the first day of training took place yesterday (Friday 11th August) and that it started with a whirlwind session leaning a routine.
In the video, Brazier said: "Yesterday it was like speed dating - speed dancing, I’m gonna call it. We learnt a routine and stuff, met all the pros and the cast, everyone’s lovely. The dancers are just the fittest people you’ve ever met in your life. It’s crazy, they’re just so sexy and fierce and powerful.
"So yeah, danced with everyone, met all the cast, there’s some really funny, great people who I get along with straight away. Blessed, man. Learnt a routine, as I’ve said."
He continued: "And now I’m excited, now I’m so excited, I can’t wait, I can’t wait. Like, learning a routine and dancing with a professional dancer is so much fun. And they’re so good, you learn so much just by dancing with them."
