Strictly’s Maisie Smith ‘crying all night’ after ending up in the dance off

Strictly Come Dancing babe Maisie Smith has reportedly been "crying all night" after ending up in the bottom two last week.

The 19-year-old soap star is said to have been comforted by her fellow Strictly celebs after turning to them for a confidence boost.

A source said: "Poor Maisie has been so upset – she's been crying all night and has really taken it to heart.

"She's young and living away from home for the first time so it's hard on her.

"The show's dancers and the other celebs have been rallying around and trying to lift her spirits," the insider added to The Sun.

The EastEnders actress and her dance partner Gorka Marquez managed to make it through to week five after some of the judges decided to send Max George, 32, and Dianne Buswell home instead.

Appearing on Strictly spin-off show It Takes Two this week, Gorka admitted that he thinks the Cha Cha landed them in the bottom two because it's the "hardest dance".

"Do you know what? All the pros say, 'The Samba is very hard', or, 'The Jive is very hard'.

"But the Cha Cha, it's a very tricky dance, especially for the females with the heels, you know?" he told host Zoe Ball.

Gemma Atkinson's boyfriend went on to say: "In the Samba, you can do shimmies or in the Jive, you can do lots of kicks and flicks, you can get away with it.

"In the Cha Cha, there's a lot of straight legs but you have to bend them and keep those legs sharp but then, you have to move the body!"

Despite being the second-highest scorers with a whopping 24 out of a possible 30, he added: "There's a lot of things going on in there! And there are only four days [to prepare], you know?"

This week the pair will be taking on the Salsa, but it appears Maisie isn't as prepared as she would expect.

"I still don't know it at all! The eight counts I do know, I'm enjoying it, I feel like I'm less stressed than last week.

"Because not that there's less technique involved but I can enjoy this one because it is just a party dance," she said.
