STRICTLY's HRVY has called Maisie Smith "beautiful" AGAIN as he continues to fuel romance rumours.
HRVY, 21, showered Maisie, 19, with compliments when quizzed on rumours he's been secretly dating the EastEnders stunner during their time on the BBC One show.
Lorraine Kelly couldn't resist raising the topic during her breakfast show after the pair were spotted leaving the Strictly studios just minutes apart in the early hours of Sunday morning.
The pair had enjoyed drinks with their co-stars, after The Sun revealed they were planning a virtual date.
And sitting beside his pro dancer Janette Manrara, 36, on Lorraine today, HRVY teased: "Lorraine you know I'd tell you the truth.
"We are just friends, we're just dancing, she's a very lovely girl, talented and beautiful, but at the moment we're focusing on the dancing."
The new pictures of Maisie and HRVY come after increasing whispers that a romance is blossoming between them.
The Sun previously revealed pop star HRVY was planning a 'virtual dance date' with the EastEnders actress.
An insider tells The Sun Online: "Maisie and HRVY were seen leaving Elstree within one minute of each other.
"The celebrities and dancers had enjoyed a few drinks in their bubbles after the show had ended."
Before the new series of Strictly had even kicked off, the pair had already been linked to each other.
Then last week, Maisie – who plays Tiffany Butcher in EastEnders – refused to rule out a relationship with HRVY, whose real name is Harvey Cantwell.
When quizzed about a possible romance, she said: “Not right now. He is a beautiful-looking guy.
"But I have only seen him for a couple of hours a week so I am still enjoying getting to know him.
"I don’t know what would happen in the future, but for now we are getting along really well as friends.”
HRVY, meanwhile, has previously described the actress – who is partnered with Gorka Marquez, 30, on Strictly – as "beautiful".
Writing in his OK! magazine column, he said: "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: "Not a lot can really happen between us because we have to be two metres apart, but I am a little excited to see how things blossom."
The pair have been flirting, with HRVY sending Maisie messages online.
HRVY, who is partnered with Janette Manrara, 36, is now said to be planning a 'virtual dance date' with her.
A source said: “There is chemistry between Maisie and HRVY, both single, and they exchanged texts.
"He would love to get to know her better so he thinks it would be a laugh if they learn a TikTok dance.”
