Last night, Shirley told Maisie following her performance: “I think you did exactly what you wanted to do and that was smashed it.

“What I was more than impressed with is that you’re starting to get your feet in a beautiful, lady-like position.

“That just adds to the beauty you already have.”

Meanwhile, Craig – who gave Maisie a nine – said: “Your energy is absolutely insane. Really complex changes of rhythm that you absolutely nailed.
