Maisie Smith has admitted there's a rivalry between herself and singer HRVY on the popular BBC show Strictly Come Dancing.

The 19 year old, who recently showed off her wild side with her vibrant car interiors, made the revelation on Strictly Come Dancing: It Takes Two on 5 November.

TV presenter Ryan Clark-Neal, 32, went in to ask about their friendship throughout the competition as he said: "You and HRVY are joint first at the top of that leaderboard.

"Now I know you've always had that friendly banter, but secretly are you like, 'Right, I'm knocking him off next week. That's it, he's off the top of the leaderboard'?"

Clearly amused by the question, the EastEnders actress responded: "When we first started, he really made it out to be like, 'Oh, I'm not gonna be very good.'"

To which Ryan responded: "He's a liar! He's a liar!" as Maisie agreed: "Yeah! Then he came out and did that jive! And we were like, 'Oh okay!' So yeah, there's a bit of rivalry now because he actually fooled me a little bit."

Despite the healthy competition between the pair, it seems 21 year old singer HRVY is quite taken by his fellow co-star as he discussed their friendship in a column in OK! online.

"How unreal did Maisie [Smith] look in her pink dress last week?! To be honest, she looks incredible every week," he said.

"I know there’s been a lot of speculation about whether there’s any romance between us. It’s funny because I’ve actually seen her the least out of everyone because she’s not been in any of my rehearsal spaces."


He went on to explain that due to the coronavirus restrictions, there's isn't much that cane progress between them at the moment but he's excited for the future.

The presenter, whose co-star Maisie recently said she's "homesick", said: "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 meters apart, but I am a little excited to see how things blossom."
