Strictly’s Maisie Smith has shared the grim reality of gruelling dance training – posting a picture of her mangled feet.
“Dance, dance, dance, what more can I say?” wrote the EastEnders teen star, reposting an image shared by fellow finalist Jamie Laing of her bleeding blistered ankles.
Talking on the video, Made In Chelsea star Jamie, a pal of Prince Harry, tells her: “Maisie complaining about her injury again! It’s not that bad honey, come on.”
While Jamie wasn’t sympathetic, Maisie won’t get much chance to rest her mangled feet before tomorrow’s big final.
The 19-year-old, who has continued to play Tiffany on the BBC One soap throughout this season, and dance partner Gorka Marquez completed their final rehearsals on Thursday.
Speaking to Zoe Ball on her BBC Radio 2 breakfast show, the pair discussed how it felt to get to the end of the series.
Maisie said: “It feels amazing. I was never ever expecting to get this far.”
She then added: “Me and Gorka are actually quite upset because this is our last day of rehearsals ever on Strictly. It’s really sad.
“We’re just enjoying it and making the most of the fun.”
Maisie and Gorka will be dancing three different routines on Saturday, and have much to prepare for.
The actress will have to see off stiff competition from comedian Bill Bailey, pop star Hryv, and Jamie if she is to lift the Glitter Ball trophy.
Maisie and Gorka will perform a festive showdance to Idina Menzel’s We Need A Little Christmas.
In addition to the couple’s showdance, the two will be performing the Judges’ choice of the Samba, which they will dance to Conga by Gloria Estefan.
The couple have also chosen the Quickstep as their favourite dance to do, which will be performed to popular jazz classic When You’re Smiling.
