What’s the genuine reason behind Molly Rainford not supporting Bobby Brazier on Strictly?

EastEnders star Molly Rainford has revealed the real reason she isn’t supporting her soap co-star Bobby Brazier on Strictly Come Dancing tonight. The actress, who plays Anna Knight in the popular soap, explained that it’s simply a case of divided loyalties rather than any sort of falling out between them.

In a recent interview with OK! magazine, Molly confessed, “I’m going to get major FOMO (fear of missing out). But I’m excited to watch my partner Carlos [Gu] and support him. He’s my partner and I’m always going to have that.”

Molly and Carlos were partners on Strictly last year and finished in a respectable sixth place. Carlos is now partnered with Angela Scanlon for the 2023 series.

When asked if she would be voting for Carlos or Bobby, Molly admitted that she’ll be torn. “Secretly I’m team Carlos, because I feel like I’m dancing with whoever he’s dancing with,” she said.

However, this news might come as a blow to Bobby, who has had a tough week. Not only is he not receiving support from his EastEnders co-star, but he also recently split with his girlfriend. The 20-year-old actor’s relationship with model Liberty Love, which had been on and off for 18 months, is reportedly “over for good” now.

Bobby and his Strictly partner Diane Buswell will be performing the Foxtrot to All About You by McFly tonight. Let’s hope he gets enough votes to make up for Molly’s absence!

EastEnders usually airs weeknights at 7.30pm on BBC One, while Strictly Come Dancing will be on at 6.15pm tonight.
