EXCLUSIVE: Freddie Brazier is dating student Scarlett Taylor-Sheridan who accompanied him to support brother Bobby on Strictly Come Dancing

Freddie Brazier is dating student Scarlett Taylor-Sheridan who accompanied him to support his brother Bobby on Strictly Come Dancing.

The couple made their romance public by appearing together at the BBC Elstree Studios, Hertfordshire, two weeks ago as they cheered on Bobby, 20, and his professional dance partner Dianne Buswell, 34.

They were also seen snuggling up to each other as they waited in the rain ahead of the live show where Freddie’s older brother took to the stage.

With huge smiles on their faces clapping for Bobby and Dianne’s performance, Freddie, 19, and Scarlett, 18, sat side by side in the TV audience, with sources telling MailOnline that the teenage pair have known each other since school.

Freddie, who is the youngest son of presenter Jeff Brazier, 44, and the late Jade Goody, has supported his soap star brother on multiple occasions as he dances live on the BBC show.

A source told MailOnline: ‘Freddie and Scarlett have known each other since school… there has always been a friendship between them but in recent months they have grown even closer.

‘Being invited to watch Strictly by Freddie meant a lot to Scarlett, it’s such a personal experience especially as performing on the show means the world to Bobby.’

While Strictly star Bobby enjoys being in the limelight, not only performing in the dance competition each week but also on EastEnders, his younger brother prefers to stay out of the public eye.

Aside from starring in some modelling campaigns, which Bobby previously told MailOnline was Freddie’s dream, there is little known about the teen, who turned 19 in September.

In honour of his birthday, his father Jeff shared an Instagram post dedicated to Freddie, who he credits for ‘making him a better man.’

Jeff wrote: ‘He always astounds with his qualities and has taught me lessons in parenting that have helped me grow and adapt in ways I never thought possible.’

Speaking to MailOnline in 2020, Bobby revealed that Freddie aspired to follow in his footsteps by pursuing a modelling career, and starring in a campaign together with his brother would be their ultimate goal. 

Bobby said: ‘It would be great to be in a campaign together, I’d love to. He sees what I’m doing and wants to do the same. There’s a couple of agencies interested, but he’s still young.

‘With modelling everything is about timing. A year ago, if I was doing the things I’m doing now, I wouldn’t have been ready – you have to grow up, it’s a proper serious job – it’s not like college. 

‘You have to be professional and I’m just there, so my brother is definitely not there yet. His time will come.’

Freddie, whose mum, Big Brother star Jade tragically died from cervical cancer when he was just four, ‘couldn’t be prouder’ of Bobby as he performs on Strictly, with many fans of the show predicting that he’s destined to win the Glitterball trophy.

Writing on Instagram, Jeff said: ‘Our Bob has quite rightly received a lot of love and kindness this week but there is nobody prouder of him than his brother Fred.’

Alongside a photo of him posing with Freddie from a mud bath, he added: ‘All three of us love the world of healing and conscious mindfulness so while the eldest is off into the world of Strictly, Freddie and I had a great day trying new things like getting covered head to toe at this mud bath ceremony.’

MailOnline has contacted Jeff Brazier’s representative for comment.
