EastEnders star Bobby Brazier is said to have been secretly messaging his model ex-girlfriend Tillie Amartey and inviting her to come watch him on Strictly Come Dancing.

Brazier, who plays Freddie Slater on EastEnders, has been tearing up the dance floor with professional partner Dianne Buswell in the latest series of Strictly on BBC. 

On Saturday (October 28) the pair scored 30 with their Cha Cha Cha routine to Come-On-A-My House during Strictly's Halloween week. 

Brazier reportedly split with his most recent girlfriend, Liberty Love, in September before the start of Strictly. 

But the Strictly star is now said to be "absolutely besotted" with another one of his exes - Tillie Amartey, according to The Mirror.

Brazier and Amartey, both 20, met through modelling agency Unsigned which they are both signed to.

Amartey, who also appears on the BBC series Waterloo Road, called it quits on their relationship back in March 2022 but Brazier remains besotted with her and is trying to win her back, said The Mirror.

A source said: “Bobby was really keen on her, but she decided to call time on the relationship, feeling they weren’t compatible.

"There was no big row and, as they have always been on/off, Bobby hasn’t given up.

"He is doing all the running at the moment. Bobby is messaging Tillie constantly in between rehearsals and has also asked her to the Strictly studio.

“Tillie does really like him, but she is based in Manchester and hasn’t decided if she will come down to see him.

“She doesn’t want to fall back into something if she thinks it won’t work out for them in the long-term.”

Brazier returns to UK television screens on Sunday (October 29) on Strictly Come Dancing's results show which will air on BBC One and iPlayer at 7.20pm.
