The 19-year-old 'EastEnders' actress revealed she would consider dating her 'Strictly Come Dancing' co-star and called the 21-year-old singer and presenter a "beautiful looking guy".

Speaking about dating HRVY - whose real name is Harvey Cantwell - Maisie said: "Not right now. He is a beautiful-looking guy.

"But I have only seen him for a couple of hours a week so I am still enjoying getting to know him.

"I don’t know what would happen in the future, but for now we are getting along really well as friends."

And HRVY recently fuelled speculation of romance between him and Maisie, calling her "beautiful and lovely".

He said: "I've actually seen her the least out of everyone because she's not been in any of my rehearsal spaces.

"But yeah, Maisie really is so lovely and beautiful - she's a really good friend of mine and I think she's an amazing dancer.

"Not a lot can really happen between us because we have to be two metres apart, but I am a little excited to see how things blossom."

However, 'Strictly' show bosses have been keeping an eye on the pair to ensure they don't break social distancing rules, amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

An insider said: "Maisie and HRVY are being monitored by the producers after it’s become clear their connection could easily lead into a 'Strictly' romance.

"They’re both young, single and hot and the thought is that the two of them could bring the other cast into risk if they break the guidelines and get closer.

"They have both been told, as have the rest of the cast, that kissing is off limits. Usually the 'Strictly' cast are very tactile. Not in 2020."
