Strictly Come Dancing fans spotted a worrying sign Bobby Brazier’s partnership on the show is a total “mismatch”.

The EastEnders star has teamed up with professional dancer Dianne Buswell for this year’s series.

On their debut last weekend (September 23), actor Bobby stunned the judges and viewers at home with his Foxtrot with Dianne – even winning rave reviews (and a backhanded compliment) from Craig Revel Horwood. However, there did appear to be a bit of a problem, viewers reckoned.

Fans have called it as they see it and they think there’s a big issue that will dampen his chances at lifting the Glitterball trophy. Namely – his height and Dianne’s lack thereof.

One said: “Christ Dianne, what was this routine, frantic and messy and more American Smooth than Foxtrot. Also why have they been paired together when height wise it’s a total mismatch! #Strictly.”

A second said: “I don’t know if it’s just me but Bobby feels a little bit too tall for Dianne.” A third added: “Is Bobby really tall or is Dianne very short?”

And another predicted: “I know everyone wanted bobby and Dianne but the height difference will cause problems.”

Last weekend, Bobby was joint second on the leaderboard. While Casualty star Nigel Harman topped the leaderboard with 32 points, Bobby was second with three other contestants.
