Maisie Smith has described how nervous she is ahead of her first Strictly Come Dancing performance.

EastEnders star Maisie shared a video to her Instagram stories in which she is trembling and admitting to nerves ahead of her first dance on the BBC show.

Maisie, 19, half hid her face behind her purple top and shielded her eyes with her hands as she spoke to her 775,000 followers.

Giving the camera a look of nerves, she said: “Guys! Show day, it’s show day."

She took a deep breath before continuing to say: “I’m so nervous, I can’t. I can’t, I just can’t!”

The soap star also took to her Instagram grid to share a picture of herself and her professional dance partner, Gorka Marquez, ahead of their first twirl around the dance floor, where they will dance to the samba.

Alongside a snap of the pair larking around, Maisie wrote: “TONIGHTS THE NIGHT week 1 of @bbcstrictly BBC1 at 7:25… SAMBA TIMMEEEE @gorka_marquez.”

The Tiffany Butcher actress was supported by many of her EastEnders co-stars, who are backing her all the way.

Natalie Cassidy wrote: “GOOD LUCK ANGEL” and Louisa Lytton commented: Good luck darling girl.”

Messages of support also poured in from fans for Maisie, who has been tipped to go the distance in the competition.


Former Strictly professional Natalie Lowe told OK! online : “My wow couples, which really impressed me, for the first show were Gorka Marquez and Maisie Smith, they were the biggest standout for me.

“She’s got it, she was winking at the camera, doing spot-turns on her own, effortlessly, she just held her own. She’s confident, sassy.

“And, Maisie is in very good hands with Gorka, he’s an amazing partner and I think they have incredible chemistry. They are ones to watch for me.”
