Strictly's HRVY denies Maisie Smith romance rumours

‘She’s lovely, talented and beautiful’: Strictly’s HRVY admits he finds Maisie Smith attractive but says he is ‘concentrating on the dancing for now’ amid romance rumours

Strictly’s HRVY has been linked to fellow dance contestant Maisie Smith. 

But in an interview with Lorraine on Tuesday, the singer and YouTuber, 21, said that while he does find the EastEnders actress, 19, attractive, there is no romance. 

He said: ‘She’s lovely, very talent and she’s beautiful, but for now I’m concentrating on the dancing…’ 

Denial: in an interview with Lorraine on Tuesday, the singer and YouTuber, 21, said that while he does find EastEnders actress Maisie Smith, 19, attractive, there is no romance

Denying romance rumours, he told Lorraine: ‘Do you know what, I’d tell you if anything was going on Lorraine, trust me I would! No, we are just friends. 

‘Obviously because of the whole Covid and pandemic rules, we can’t really be within any distance of each other anyway, we’ve got to be two metres, so we’re just friends, we’re just dancing.’ 

Maisie and HRVY left the show’s Hertfordshire venue within a minute of each other on Sunday morning as they continued to spark rumours of a potential romance.

Compliments: He said: ‘She’s lovely, very talent and she’s beautiful, but for now I’m concentrating on the dancing…’

The pair were the last to leave Elstree Studios following the show’s movie week, with HRVY departing at 4:36am before being closely followed by Maisie in a separate car at 4:37am. 

After performing to Don’t Go Breaking My Heart with professional dance partner Janette Manrara, HRVY greeted onlookers with a cheerful thumb’s up as he pulled out of the studio alone. 

With Strictly recorded live from 7:25pm on Saturday evening it was a surprisingly late hour to be leaving the studio, with professional dancer Oti Mabuse also seen departing in the early hours at 4:15am.

‘Just friends’: ‘Obviously because of the whole Covid and pandemic rules, we can’t really be within any distance of each other anyway, we’ve got to be two metres, so we’re just friends, we’re just dancing’

Their latest appearance comes after Maisie described HRVY, with whom she has been repeatedly linked, as a ‘beautiful-looking guy’.  

HRVY, who has been topping the leaderboard on the BBC dance show, told Lorraine he has been having a blast on the show. 

‘It’s been the best experience ever, didn’t realised how much I loved dancing. Dancing with Janette is a dream. We have so much fun.’

Janette added: ‘He works really hard! HRVY puts in all the hours he possibly can, he’s such an incredible student.

‘He’s never really danced before, he only danced three years ago for his music video.’

The pair will be dancing the salsa next and said they have lots of competition this year because there are no ‘joke acts.’

Janette said: ‘This is one of those years where it’s the tightest competitions yet, it’s all down to audience preference. 

‘That’s why it’s more important than ever, if you do have a favourite, you have to go out and vote, because it’s going to be so tight.’

HRVY added: ‘I’m so grateful to have a new audience, I hope they love me!’
