MAISIE Smith looked downcast after her romantic holiday with her new boyfriend Max George.
The pair – who met on Strictly back in 2020 – grew close on the show's tour that took place this year.
Earlier this month The Sun revealed how Maisie, 19 and Max, 33, have been secretly dating for weeks – and have enjoyed THREE secret holidays over the past 12 months.
The love birds recently jetted off to Crete and stayed at a five star hotel.
But have no returned to normality, and Maisie was spotted looking dispirited leaving rehearsals for Strictly Ballroom The Musical in London.
The former EastEnders star clutched her script in one hand and her phone in the other.

Maisie, who is best known for playing Tiffany Butcher in the BBC soap, looked stylish in a black cropped hoodie, ripped denim jeans and yellow Nike trainers.
She completed the look with natural makeup and her red hair slicked back into a bun.
Maisie, who is set to star as main character Fran in the stage show, sat at the front of an attentive crowd of dancers and production staff.
She will star in the production alongside former co-star on Strictly Come Dancing, Kevin Cliffton.

Meanwhile The Sun exclusively revealed Max George turned down £160k to star on Celebs Go Dating after his holiday with Maisie.
Producers tried to tempt The Wanted singer, who has recently split from Stacey Giggs, but he declined.
A TV source said: "Unfortunately Max turned it down – despite the huge pay cheque – he has no ambitions to be on a dating show especially so soon after his split with Stacey.
"He's found the past few days tough and says he's trying to keep a low profile and stay out of the spotlight for a while."
