Strictly Come Dancing’s Bobby Brazier hints he will be paying tribute to his late mum Jade Goody on the dance floor this week.
However, Bobby is also dancing for a personal reason.
While his late mum Jade Goody isn’t here to see him compete, the model-turned-actor has ensured she's never far from his thoughts.
Jade passed away at the age of just 27, leaving behind Bobby and his little brother Freddie.
And this week, Bobby has confirmed he's making an 'emotional' tribute to Jade.
After just getting through the performance at Blackpool last weekend with his professional dance partner Dianna Buswell, Bobby is looking to the future for this week's Couple's Choice.
The pair have revealed they'll be dancing in a contemporary style, with ballroom elements as they dance to Maxwell’s cover of Kate Bush's 'This Woman’s Work.'
While Bobby is excited to tackle the routine, he also explained there will be an emotional element to his performance.
The star revealed: “It is the perfect song, sung by the perfect man and it is the perfect tone.
"The lyrics are just profound and touched me at my core, it is gorgeous.
"I am going to have to work very hard this week to do it justice.”
Bobby also opened up about the reason why he's finding this dance so emotional.
The dance mimics a mother and son relationship, and is a tribute to Jade Goody.
Bobby explained: “I am a child, well there is me as a child and I come out as me now.
"I have got Dianne, who replicates a woman, let’s say my mother probably.
"We go on this journey throughout.
"I don’t know the whole dance yet to tell you completely but it is emotional.
"I think there could be a few tears.”
He reflected how passionate he was feeling about the dance to The Mirror, saying: “Our Couple’s Choice, there is a song that is so perfect, I would love to do it.
"If it happens, it happens, but I would love to do that.”
Well, it looks like it's happening - and we can't wait to see!
