Bobby Brazier rehearses for Strictly with Dianne Buswell
Tess Daly revealed Bobby Brazier’s message to Dianne Buswell during their second dance routine.
The soap star urged his dance partner to “slow down” during their energetic Charleston which they performed on tonight’s Strictly Come Dancing.
Bobby and Dianne opened the show with a bang, dancing to Do Your Thing by Basement Jaxx, but the rehearsal footage shown before they took to the floor showed an irritated Bobby screeching: “Slow Down Dianne!”
The 20-year-old star seemed to have recovered from his rehearsal wobble for the show though as he managed to keep up for the whole song.
When they finished Tess Daly joked about it and revealed what Bobby said to Dianne: ” I love how you were saying, ’Slow down, Dianne, slow down!’”
Despite his trepidation at the speed of the dance, he pulled it off, including two lifts and the couple scored an impressive 29 from the judges.

The bookies agree with this consensus and Bobby is currently the favourite to win the competition according to Ladbrokes just ahead of last week’s Leaderboard topper Nigel Harman.
The pair have impressed judges, viewers, and seemingly punters alike, and are streets ahead of the rest with Bobby at 9/4, while Nigel is a 10/3 shot
Elsewhere, Angela Scanlon and Ellie Leach are 6/1 apiece, while Les Dennis and Nikita Kanda are the rank outsiders right now at 66/1.
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “There’s a growing suspicion among fans and punters alike that this already looks likely to be a two-horse race for this year’s Glitterball Trophy. Bobby Brazier and Nigel Harmon are fast-becoming clear favourites, and anything else – at this moment in time – would be considered a huge upset.”
Strictly Come Dancing results show is on BBC One at 7.15pm Sunday October 1.
