It comes after Bobby and his father Jeff teamed up to raise funds for cancer research through an appearance on Celebrity Gogglebox.
The father-son duo are scheduled to appear on Friday night’s Stand Up To Cancer show, where they will detail the impact the disease has had on their family.
Bobby, 20, was just five years old when his mother Jade Goody died aged 27 after a very public battle with cervical cancer. His brother Freddie was just four years old.
Jeff, 44, and Jade had separated at the time of her death, but he has dedicated his life to helping others by speaking openly about grief and mental health.
When speaking about their decision to support Stand Up To Cancer, Jeff noted that the cause is “incredibly close to their hearts.”
He explained: “We understand firsthand the impact cancer has on families.”
“With Celebrity Gogglebox for Stand Up To Cancer, we are supporting a cause that is incredibly close to our hearts.”
“Cancer touches so many lives and it is vital to continue to raise awareness and provide funding for research.”

“Through laughter and shared moments, we hope to inspire others to join us in the fight against cancer, knowing that every contribution brings us closer to defeating this terrible disease.”
Bobby added: “I’m really looking forward to being on Celebrity Gogglebox with my dad.”
“It’s for a good cause, I can’t wait to just sit in front of the TV and relax.” “It’s been a long time since we last sat in front of the TV and didn’t do anything together.”
Jeff and Jade separated in 2004, not long after the birth of their second son Freddie, now 19.
Some will remember how Bobby and Freddie acted as bellboys at their mother’s wedding to boyfriend Jack Tweed just a month before her death in 2009.
After their mother’s death, Bobby and Freddie moved in with their father, who significantly changed their lifestyle.
There were no more celebrity photo shoots – he didn’t even allow the boys to attend Jade’s very public funeral – and there was a more considered response to their upbringing.
Strong legal notices were sent to the press demanding the boys’ privacy so they could grow up away from the public eye.
Jeff single-handedly raised her before marrying PR executive Kate Dwyer in 2018. Today, the brothers acknowledge her help in raising the two of them.

Now, 15 years later, Bobby is back in the spotlight and after landing a role in EastEnders, he is now wowing the nation with an appearance on Strictly Come Dancing.
According to sources, the BBC are so keen for Bobby to make it to the final that they want him to give his best to the show.
“Bobby is a superstar and everyone at the BBC knows it,” said an insider.
“The BBC knew the nation would fall in love with him and follow every moment of his Strictly journey.
“But doing the show alongside filming for EastEnders can be really difficult, especially in the run-up to Christmas, and it’s tiring.”
“The fact that EastEnders has let Bobby go means he has a much better chance of winning Strictly, which is the aim here.”
Some may say that the network actually set the stage for Bobby’s victory – but still, there’s no doubt that he’s more than ready for the role.
Bobby says he doesn’t have many memories of Jade “because I was so young when she died.”
However, he admits that she gave him a taste for the spotlight, something he says he dreamed of from a young age.
“I think as a kid that was all I wanted,” he said. “When I was younger I was desperate for it. I spent so much time preparing because I started to believe that this could happen and that I could have it.
“When I was 14, 15 or even 12, I remember having these thoughts and desires. I spent a lot of my childhood just wanting attention.”

Losing his mother when he was so young could have easily devastated him, but Bobby seems to be the epitome of happiness.
“I’m always dancing around the house and whatever,” he revealed.
He has great reason to be happy because, according to his relatives, he is on the verge of becoming a millionaire.
