Maisie Smith didn't take news of her landing in the bottom two with Strictly Come Dancing pro partner Gorka Marquez lightly, as she reportedly "cried all night" after the fact.

The EastEnders star, 19, was left "gutted" by the public vote after she found herself in the bottom two alongside popstar Max George.

And after Max was sent home, Maisie was still feeling the close call as it took a toll on her that evening.

A source told The Sun : "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."

On Saturday night, the flame-haired star performed the Cha Cha to Girls Just Want To Have Fun by Cyndi Lauper alongside professional Gorka, but seemingly it didn’t go down too well with viewers.

Maisie, who had previously been tipped to win Strictly 2020, found herself having to battle to stay in the competition.

Each of the judges were then tasked with deciding their fate, with both Craig Revel Horwood and Anton Du Beke, who was standing in for Motsi Mabuse, choosing to save Maisie.

However, head judge Shirley Ballas said that she would have chosen to save Max and Dianne.

Speaking after his elimination, Max said: "I've loved it. It's all down to Dianne, she's been literally amazing. For me to get through 90 seconds of a dance for four weeks now is a credit to her, she's just unbelievable.

"I've got to say, all these guys over here are the nicest group of people ever. I love you all!”
