The actor, who plays Freddie Slater, took a break from Walford to take part in last year’s Strictly competition. However, he has yet to return to his day job on EastEnders.

Bobby Brazier reveals EastEnders return following Strictly tour
Since taking second place on Strictly, Bobby has been taking part in the the show’s live tour – which wrapped up its run last weekend.
This has left many wondering when – and if – Bobby would be returning to EastEnders. Thankfully, Bobby has confirmed that he will be back to work on the soap sooner rather than later.
Speaking to the Daily Telegraph at the TV Choice awards, Bobby revealed that he will be filming new scenes for the soap next Monday (February 19).
This means that his scenes should air in several months time.
But where has his character – Freddie Slater – been all this time?
What happened to Freddie Slater?
Freddie fled Walford in the back of Harvey’s taxi in 2023 after being released on bail for the crime of attempted murder. This followed his attack on stalker Theo Hawthorne, who had broken into the Slaters’ home and was attempting to rape Stacey.
Freddie beat Theo unconscious with an iron in defence of Stacey. Although Theo survived Freddie’s attack, the youth was charged with attempted murder.
Will Freddie be forced to face the music upon his return to Walford?
