Bobby Brazier, the son of the late Big Brother star Jade Goody, joins EastEnders as a new addition to the Slater family.

Bobby Brazier, the son of the late reality TV star Jade Goody, has joined the cast of EastEnders in what will be his first acting role.

The 19-year-old will play Freddie Slater, the teenage son of Little Mo (Kacey Ainsworth) who was last seen fleeing the Square with his mother in 2006.

Chris Clenshaw, the soap's exec producer, said of Freddie: "Freddie Slater is a chaotic 18-year-old with a sensitive soul.

"A modern-day lad who's in touch with his spiritual side. He's philosophical, accepting, but full of mischief and makes mistakes.

"Bobby is an amazing young addition to the EastEnders cast who brings heart and humility to the role of Freddie Slater and I can't wait for audiences to get to know him."

Brazier said: "I'm really excited to be joining the cast of EastEnders - so far it's been perfect.

"Everybody has been so beautiful to me and made settling in easier than I could've hoped.

"Stepping into the acting world has always been a vision of mine and doing that with EastEnders as a Slater is a blessing, I'm very grateful. Loving every minute of Freddie so far and can't wait to see what's in store for him in Walford."

Brazier has already started filming and will make his on-screen debut this autumn.
