Bobby Brazier has dazzled fans with his moves in an unusual place outside of the Strictly Come Dancing ballroom — in the gym on a treadmill. 

The EastEnders star, 20, can be seen wearing his ballroom shoes while on the exercise machine impressing followers with flashes of his upcoming quickstep.

Professional dancer Dianne Buswell, 34, shared a video of the soap star showing off his fancy footwork while working up a sweat.

Dianne captioned the video: "When the commitment is real!!! go on Bobby."

Bobby joked: "Wow he seems like a great student. Committed, dedicated, willing to wear ballroom shoes in the gym?! You’ve hit gold there @diannebuswell."

Fellow Strictly contestant Layton Williams commented: "Obsessed," while pro dancer Carlos Gu added: "Love thatttt [sic]."

One fan penned: "Not what I was expecting to see on my bday but loving it. Go on Bobby."

Another fan commented: "What a great way to learn your steps, that's genius."

A third agreed: "What a great training idea." 

"That’s actually really impressive. I can barely walk on a treadmill," wrote a fourth.

Bobby is set to take to the dancefloor with a quickstep following last week's lift-packed charleston to Do Your Thing by Basement Jaxx. 

Judge Anton Du Beke believed their dance was “absolutely terrific” and they received a total score of 29, equalling their result from week one.

The judges awarded the actor with an impressive 29 points, but it was time to say goodbye to comedian Les Dennis and Nancy Xu who failed to make their mark with their Samba to Rock The Boat by Hues Corporation.

Strictly Come Dancing continues on 7 October at 7.15pm on BBC One and Player.
