Strictly Come Dancing star Maisie Smith (19) is partner of Gorka Marquez (30) for the 2020 series. Despite her impressive dancing skills and near-flawless performances, the EastEnders actress landed in the bottom two positions twice in a row during the BBC competition.
The actress – the youngest celebrity of the year – was rescued last weekend by judges Shirley Ballas, Craig Revel Horwood and Anton Du Beke.
The small-screen star has admitted that getting in the bottom two positions for the second time was « hard » and hurt her confidence.
« People have said that they can’t warm to me at Strictly, but I’m so nervous and that can be interpreted as arrogance, » Maisie has now explained.
« I’ll either go quiet or exaggerate to build a confident front. «
She added, « It’s hard not to be influenced by it. I really need to remind myself to trust myself and be me. «
Maisie reportedly burst into tears after it was revealed she was in the bottom two positions.
The Tiffany Butcher actress stated that she often needs to remind herself not to take the criticism personally.
Maisie went on fine! Magazine: « It shook my confidence. I’ve tried so hard – we all did.
Maisie has the support of Gorka, whom she became a close friend during the BBC series.

Talking about the spin-off show Strictly It Takes Two, host Zoe Ball told Maisie not to be « discouraged » about being on the bottom two.
Zoe said, « It’s a terrible moment and we are all ready not to let this happen to you.
« It’s like dancing for your life. That’s what it feels like. I’m just trying to enjoy myself. «
In the meantime, the EastEnders star and Gorka will be back on the dance floor this weekend.
