Maisie Smith puffs a cigarette with Strictly tour co-stars after cuddling up to Kai Widdrington


EX EastEnders star Maisie Smith was spotted enjoying a late-night cigarette break with her Strictly tour co-stars on Friday.

The 20-year-old was joined by Jake Leigh and John Whaite as they sat outside a hotel in London and animatedly chatted away.

Maisie looked to be having a whale of a time as she burst into fits of giggles with her co-stars

Maisie looked in high spirits as she was seen laughing alongside the Great British Bake Off winner, 32, and the professional dancer.

The star was dressed down in a casual grey zip-up sweater and matching joggers and some comfortable-looking bright pink fluffy slippers.

Maisie wept her curly locks off her face in a half-up-half-down do’ and donned a pair of simple gold earrings to complete the look.

Her pals were dressed in stylish all-black outfits for the group outing but made sure to wrap up warm against the chilly weather.

Maisie was announced as a last-minute replacement for AJ Odudu in the upcoming tour and seems to have built a great relationship with Kai Widdrington, 26, already.

The pair were spotted cuddling up this week as they headed to dinner in between rehearsals.

AJ – who was romantically linked to Kai throughout the series – was forced to pull out of the final with just a day’s notice after suffering from ligament damage.

Maisie – who quit playing Tiffany Butcher last year alongside Gorka Marquez – announced she was taking part in the tour this month.

She told fans: “So excited to be a part of the @bbcstrictly team again on this years arena tour – dancing with the wonderful @kaiwidd💃🏻I wish @ajodudu a speedy recovery 🙏🏼❤.”

While a gutted AJ said: “I’m devastated not to be able to take part in the Strictly tour due to injury.

“I had hoped for one last dance with Kai, but I must obviously follow the medical advice. I wish my Strictly family the very best of luck on the road and I’ll definitely be there to cheer them on.”

Maisie opted for a low-key outfit as she joined Jake Leigh and John Whaite for a smoke
