Strictly Come Dancing stars HRVY and Maisie Smith have been been photographed walking very close together, fuelling allegations that they have broken social distancing rules that are in place on the hit dance show.

The young stars, who have been at the centre of many rumours that romance is budding between them, were snapped just inches apart from one another as they arrived to film It Takes Two, the Strictly spin-off show.

In the pictures obtained by The Mirror, Eastenders star Maisie, 19, was also with her dance partner Gorka Marquez, while HRVY, 21, was walking just in front with his dance partner Janette Manrara.

A source told The Sun: "The stars are being reminded that they must stay at least two metres apart.

"It's hard to maintain, as everyone knows, but it's more important than ever now for Strictly that everyone stays as far apart as possible.

Rumour began to circulate that Maisie and HRVY may be on the verge of romance after fans spotted the two sending flirty messages on Instagram.

HRVY them told The Mirror Online: “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.

He added: “I can’t wait to see her grow and look amazing every week.”

In a recent interview with new! magazine, he set the record straight, saying: "We're just friends. I'm here to dance and have a good time.

"You can't see anyone but your partner anyway, so it wouldn't be the right time for anything.

"But Maisie's a great girl and she's very beautiful."

These recent pictures may cause trouble for the pair, considering the hit dance show has already lost Nicola Adams, who had to drop out of the contest after her dance partner Katya Jones tested positive for coronavirus.

“But I just want to say a huge thank you to @Mrs_katjones for being the best dance partner anyone could ask for. Team #outsidethebox”.
