Strictly Come Dancing viewers have reacted with shock after contestant Bobby Brazier appeared to admit live on air that he has a partner.
Twenty-year-old Eastenders star Bobby Brazier made the comments following his latest routine with dance partner, 34-year-old professional Dianne Buswell.
The pair, one of eight remaining couples still fighting it out in the BBC dance contest, performed the American Smooth to 5 Seconds of Summer’s song, “Ghost of You”.
Brazier and his dance partner received fairly positive critiques following the routine, but, ever the critic, Craig Revel Horwood said Brazier had let the performance down with the way he was using his hands.
Following the critiques, host Claudia Winkleman joked that Brazier had been doing the performance “in his sleep”.
In response, Brazier said that he had “woke up one morning doing this,” waving his hands about in imitation of the dance routine. “I woke myself up doing that. Crazy,” he added.
Then, in a moment that hasn’t gone unnoticed by Strictly fans, Brazier continued: “And then the week before, the person that I shared the bed with, I turned, and I said, ‘This is the industrial twist.’”
Brazier’s fellow celebrity contestants and professionals burst into hysterics, with Winkleman attempting to relieve his embarrassment. “Let’s pull on that string,” she said, hoping to move the conversation swiftly on.
Strictly fanatics have taken to social media to share their thoughts on the cheeky comment, and speculate over who Brazier could have been referring to.
“‘The person I share a bed with…’ we’ll all be wondering who,” wrote one person, along with the shifty eyes emoji.
“’The person I share a bed with…Bobby! *Madly googling if Joe and Diane are still together*,” another wrote, theorising that Buswell and her partner, YouTuber Joe Sugg, might have called it quits.
“BOBBY TIME AND PLACE,” a third exclaimed, alongside the laughing emoji.
Strictly Come Dancing continues on BBC One and BBC iPlayer on Saturday 18 November.
