Jade Goody's son Bobby Brazier cast in Eastenders
He's making a name for himself.
The late Jade Goody's son Bobby Brazier is all grown up and set to star in upcoming episodes of Eastenders.
Joining the cast of the hit soap, Bobby is set to make his acting debut as Freddie Slater, the son of Little Mo Slater, with the 19 year old filming the show currently.
Set to make his first appearance in autumn, Bobby is the late son of reality TV stars Jade Goody and Jeff Brazier.
Teasing what's is coming up on the show, the BBC said: "Freddie was last seen in Walford in May 2006 when he and Little Mo left to start a new life away from Walford. Now an 18-year-old, Freddie is set to arrive on The Square as he finds himself on a mission that could end in heartbreak…
"A bundle of energy and a truckload of trouble, Freddie Slater has a heart of gold but can't help getting himself into mischief. While he's sweet like his mum, he certainly isn't shy and manages to cause a stir wherever he goes - but is he a true Slater at heart?"

Speaking about his new role in the series, Bobby said: "I'm really excited to be joining the cast of EastEnders - so far it's been perfect. Everybody has been so beautiful to me and made settling in easier than I could've hoped. Stepping into the acting world has always been a vision of mine and doing that with EastEnders as a Slater is a blessing. I'm very grateful.
"Loving every minute of Freddie so far and can't wait to see what's in store for him in Walford."
Bobby's mum Jade sadly passed away in 2009 at only 27 years old after she had been diagnosed with cervical cancer. She has two sons, Bobby and Freddy.
The Big Brother star was a huge fan of the BBC soap and in 2006 was said to have stopped two of the stars at V Festival asking them to get her a role on the show.
