The actress and Gorka, 30, performed an energetic Samba routine, scoring them an impressive 24 from the judges.

This saw the duo finish the night in second place, just behind musican HRVY and his dance partner Janette Manrara.

Taking a break from rehearsals today, Maisie headed to her local branch of Starbucks to pick up a caffeinated treat and shared her delighted after receiving it.

Staff at the coffee house, who are famous for writing the name of their customers on their cups, had penned ‘Samba Queen’ on Maisie’s.

While sitting on her leopard print faux fur car seat, the Strictly hopeful snapped a picture of her ‘personalised’ drink and shared it with fans.

She captioned it on Instagram with a pair of lips and a little dancing teddy bear GIF.

Maisie also posted a snap of herself and Gorka that was taken moments after they had stepped off the stage at the BBC studios in London.

The soap star wrote on the photo: “Safe to say we were happy @gorka_marquez.”

Fans are already tipping the pair for the final

Fans of Strictly had watched in amazement as Maisie nailed her week 1 dance, meaning many are now already tipping her for the final.

All three judges – Craig Revel Horwood, Motsi Mabuse and Shirley Ballas – each gave an 8 to Maisie and Gorka.

Meanwhile, before she took to the dance floor, Maisie had managed to distract viewers with her peachy bum after footage of her wearing skin-tight leggings was aired.
