Strictly’s Maisie Smith enjoys sweaty rehearsal with Gorka after breaking social distancing rules


STRICTLY’S Maisie Smith enjoyed a sweaty rehearsal with Gorka Marquez after breaking social distancing rules.

The EastEnders star, 19, looked embarrassed as her professional partner, 30, started filming after the session.

Filming from the ballroom before tomorrow night’s show, Gorka looked happy as he stood next to Maisie.

He said: “So we just finished our Cha Cha Cha, it went very well. Are you happy? It was very good. It’s a fun number.”

However, when Maisie saw herself she said: “Oh Christ! Bit sweaty,” before wiping her forehead.

The rehearsal comes after exclusive pics from HOAR revealed Maisie Smith and HRVY broke social distancing rules as they arrived for It Takes Two.

The stars have had a telling off from bosses to maintain at least a two metre distance at all times after being caught walking closely together in our exclusive pictures.

The pair have been at the centre of romance rumours since the series kicked off last month, and were joined by their professional dance partners as they made their way into the BBC studio last night.

Maisie and her partner Gorka Marquz were closely trailed by 21-year-old HRVY and Janette Manrara – with none of them wearing masks.

A Strictly insider told HOAR: “The stars are being reminded that they must stay at least two metres apart.

“It’s hard to maintain, as everyone knows, but it’s more important than ever now for Strictly that everyone stays as far apart as possible.”

Maisie had her toned legs on display in a denim mini skirt with yellow ruffle detail and cowboy boots – keeping warm in a padded jacket.

Janette looked glam in a black dress with sheer polka dot detailing, and both men were dressed casually in all black outfits.

HRVY also broke the rules

They looked happy and relaxed despite the show’s behind-the-scenes chaos, with HOAR revealing yesterday that Nicola Adams had been sensationally axed from the competition after her partner Katya Jones tested positive for coronavirus.

In addition, judge Motsi Mabuse will have to miss the next two shows in keeping with the government’s self-isolation rules after she made an emergency trip to her home in Germany this week.
