Strictly Come Dancing: What did HRVY say?

The musician told PA news agency: “Obviously we try our best to socially distance when we are walking around the studios and outside, but obviously when you are walking and talking you don’t even realise.

“But no one touched each other. I just think we were maybe slightly closer than two metres while we were talking.”

He added: “The BBC told us off and everything is all good and everyone is trying their best to maintain all the rules and regulation. We are all good. We are all OK.”

At the time, The Sun reported that the two had a “telling off” from Strictly bosses.

Is there a romance between HRVY and Maisie Smith?

The news comes days after HRVY – real name Harvey Cantwell – admitted he’s looking forward to getting to know Maisie once the show is over.

However, the pair are keeping their relationship purely platonic during the current series.

Speaking to The Sun, he said: “I’ll be in my prime and ready. I’m sure at one point, when we can, Maisie and I will go out for dinner. I’m pretty sure she’s single too.

“I haven’t actually asked, but if we ever go for a meal, I’ll make sure I check first.

“Maisie’s an amazing girl, very beautiful, but for now I’m just going to concentrate on the dancing because I fancy getting to the final.”

Meanwhile, Maisie recently described HRVY as a “beautiful guy”.
