“Bobby and Nigel, rooting for you both,” another shared.

“There’s this year’s winner,” one fan said when chatting about Bobby as another echoed: “This year’s Glitterball champion.”

On September 16, the celebrity contestants will make their debut with their dance partners.

For the launch show, the stars will take to the dance floor for the first time as they attempt to impress the judges.

The week after will be when the competition really starts as one celebrity will be at risk of leaving.

Up until now, Bobby Brazier has been the bookmakers’ favourite to win the competition.

However, Angela Scanlon is hot on the soap star’s heels, but who will end up wowing the judging panel?

Strictly Come Dancing airs next Saturday at 6.35pm on BBC One.
