Maisie Smith has revealed she's put on some weight since taking part in Strictly Come Dancing.

The 19 year old, who is reportedly "cooling down her romance" with HRVY so they can "concentrate" on the competition, opened up on how her body has changed over the last month while training with her professional dancing partner Gorka Marquez, 30.

The EastEnders star explained that while she's put on a little weight, the star feels she's getting "strong every day".

"I’ve put on weight! I make dinners at the weekend to last the whole week and I eat them within two days," she told The Daily Star.

"The gyms are closed and I’m a gym freak – that’s where I feel happiest – but I don’t feel like I’m lacking. In the first lockdown I struggled without the gym, but this time around I haven’t felt that."

Maisie, who was supported by Emma Barton as she said she's "brilliant", added: "I’m getting so strong every day. And dancing is the most fun!"

It comes as the actress recently spoke out over her insecurities about having cellulite on her legs.

The red haired beauty took to her Instagram feed to share a series of snaps showing her in tiny green shorts. The star wore an oversized red jumper with a pair of very short and tiny green shorts, highlighting her incredibly toned legs, which she paired with lemon-yellow trainers.

"No matter how many people told me “cellulite is natural.. everyone has it..” I still hated them.

"It’s taken me a while but I’m starting to accept these aspects of myself that I’ve always seen as “flaws”. I wore gym shorts (out of the house) for the FIRST time a couple of months ago n I was so so proud of myself [heart emoji]. I wish I could I say that I LOVE my body but I’m still working on that," [sic]followed by a sweating face emoji.

The stunning star went onto explain that she hopes her post can help others embrace the parts of them they deem as "flaws".
