’s next routine is looking like it will be an to his late mum Jade Goody.

Alongside professional partner , he will perform a Couple’s choice routine to Maxwell’s This Woman’s work. The pair have opted for a contemporary style, with ballroom elements to likely pay tribute to Goody.

While speaking on the spin-off show It Takes Two with Fleur East, Bobby, 20, admitted the song choice has moved him.

‘It is the perfect song, sung by the perfect man and it is the perfect tone. The lyrics are just profound and touched me at my core – it is gorgeous,’ he shared.

‘I am going to have to work very hard this week to do it justice.’

He added that Dianne, 34, will take on a special role in the routine.

‘I am a child, well there is me as a child and I come out as me now. I have got Dianne, who replicates a woman let’s say my mother probably,’ he explained.

‘We go on this journey throughout. I don’t know the whole dance yet to tell you completely but it is emotional. I think there could be a few tears.’

Bobby revealed his hopes that he would be able to pay tribute to Goody before the competition began. ‘Our Couple’s Choice, there is a song that is so perfect, I would love to do it,’ he told

‘If it happens, it happens, but I would love to do that.’

Dianne has already been struggling to contain her emotion: ‘The first ten seconds, even when we were in the rehearsal room, I could not look Bobby in the eye because it made me well up.’

Despite being on Strictly for six years, Dianne has ‘never done anything like it,’ and is ‘already loving it.’

The pair will be hoping to make a triumphant comeback after facing the dance-off in last week’s Blackpool special. They remain in the BBC show after successfully being saved by the judges Shirley Ballas, Motsi Mabuse, Craig Revel Horwood, and Anton Du Beke over Angela Rippon and Kai Widdrington.

When Goody died from cervical  aged just 27 in March 2009, Bobby was five, and brother Freddie was four. They were then solely raised by their dad Jeff Brazier, 44.

Bobby exclusively told that Goody ‘would be proud’ of him.

‘And not necessarily for Strictly, I think for everything. My life is a much bigger picture than this and everyone that knows and loves me is proud of me, and I think she’d be the same.’

He previously told he had ‘memories of memories’ of his mum, who found fame on Big Brother.

‘I’m always being told about her and what she meant to people. I guess I know my mum through other people’s memories of my mum,’ he explained.
