Strictly Come Dancing star Bobby Brazier has ‘snubbed’ three of his former co-stars on Instagram.
The model, 20, who reached the final of the BBC ballroom show with Dianne Buswell, 34, does not follow fellow competitors comedian Les Dennis, radio presenter Nikita Kanda and EastEnders star Nigel Harman on the social media site.
However, the soap star does follow the remaining 2023 cast: Amanda Abbington, Zara McDermott, Jody Cundy, Krishnan Guru-Murthy, Angela Rippon, Layton Williams, Eddie Kadi, Adam Thomas, Angela Scanlon, Annabel Croft and Ellie Leach.
Nigel also hasn’t followed the Strictly cast on Instagram, including his partner Katya Jones, bar professional dancer Nikita Kuzmin.
51-year-old Nigel, however, only follows 13 accounts in total, which could explain why he hasn’t made the move.
Meanwhile, Bobby’s ‘snub’ could just be an innocent mistake but on Strictly he did share a strong bond with Dianne, who he previously described as a ‘diamond’ and was often spotted larking about with.

While Bobby didn’t lift the Glitterball Trophy, an expert has predicted he could surpass the success of winner Ellie, who won the public vote with professional dancer Vito Coppola.
Brand and culture expert Nick Ede explained to Metro.co.uk that he could be on track to become the ‘UK’s Timothée Chalamet’ thanks to his ‘classic good looks, fabulous dance ability and his acting skills.’
Explaining how Bobby’s career could expand into the luxury market, Nick continued: ‘I think that he will have a massive future ahead of him where he will become the face of many international luxury beauty and fashion brands.

‘I can see Dior grabbing him to replace Johnny Depp when they decide to retire him from Eau Sauvage.’
‘He has the potential to earn millions and have millions of fans worldwide too.’
He is even thought to have lined up his next major gig after Strictly – hosting a BBC travel show with his dad Jeff Brazier, 44.
Bobby, son of the late Big Brother star Jade Goody, is also reportedly swamped with offers to be in West End shows, sign record deals, and make ad appearances soon, according to a source.
‘From the start of Strictly, Beeb bosses realised that they had a serious star on their hands – and the fact that he made it to the final was a complete bonus,’ they said.
So, they’re incredibly keen to keep him with the Corporation, not least because Bobby is seen as a home-grown talent as he got his big TV break on EastEnders.
‘The travelogue show would be a shrewd way to tempt him to stay with the Beeb and is likely to be among the first of many projects they’ll tempt him with – many with a fat pay cheque too,’ they added when speaking to The Sun.

Beginning his career as a model, Bobby made his catwalk debut at Milan Fashion Week in 2020.
Then, last year, he joined the BBC soap EastEnders as Freddie Slater, a role which saw him pick up the Rising Star National Television Award earlier this year.
