HRVY, 21, and his Strictly Come Dancing 2020 co-star Maisie Smith, 19, have been at the centre of romance rumours since they began exchanging flirty comments on social media. Now the YouTube star – real name Harvey Leigh Cantwell – has confessed he is excited to see how things will go between him and the EastEnders actress.
Maisie is so lovely and beautiful
It comes amid reports that Strictly Come Dancing execs are now watching the pair, to ensure there will be no breaches to this year’s strict coronavirus rules.
The guidelines on the show include a ban on physical touching for anyone outside of a contestant’s bubble.
Speaking about his friendship with his co-star, HRVY 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.”
He added to OK! Magazine: “Not a lot can happen between us because we have to be two metres apart, but I am a little excited to see how things blossom.”
A source told The Sun: “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.”
An insider added to Mirror Online that kissing is off limits for contestants along with hugging to ensure their safety.
In the competition, HRVY is paired with Janette Manrara, and was top of the leaderboard last weekend, with Maisie and Gorka Marquez in second place.
Previously, HRVY shared: “I love Maisie, she’s a great girl and has got great banter.
“When I saw her in her blue dress last week, she looked incredible. I can’t wait to see her grow and look amazing every week.”
Maisie’s representatives have been approached for comment by Express.co.uk.

The pair have shared a series of tongue-in-cheek messages on social media.
After comparing HRVY to Justin Bieber, Maisie teased: “You just reminded me, my spaghetti’s almost done!”
HRVY cheekily hit back: “Stop flirting, you love spaghetti.”
However, the two have yet to spend quality time together as they adhere to the BBC show’s social distancing guidelines.
He explained: “I’ve spoken to Maisie at the studios, but the thing is legally I’m not even allowed to go near her.
“So, for now, we are great friends, and she’s lovely.
“I am going to focus on the dancing, and all that stuff can come second, but who knows what will happen after the show!”
