“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,” she told The Sun Online.

It comes after HRVY admitted he thought the red headed actress was “beautiful” in his exclusive column with OK!.

As he gushed over how “unreal” she looked during her debut performance, he admitted: “To be honest, she looks incredible every week. I know there’s been a lot of speculation about whether there’s any romance between us.

“It’s funny because I’ve actually seen her the least out of everyone because she’s not been in any of my rehearsal spaces.

“But yeah, Maisie really is so lovely and beautiful. She’s a really good friend of mine and I think she’s an amazing dancer.

“Not a lot can really happen between us because we have to be two meters apart, but I am a little excited to see how things blossom.”

Meanwhile, Maisie revealed there is a slight rivalry between the pair on the Strictly dance floor.

Speaking on Strictly Come Dancing: It Takes Two on Thursday 5 November, Maisie was asked about her friendship with HRVY by presenter Rylan Clark-Neal.

He said: “You and HRVY are joint first at the top of that leaderboard.

“Now I know you've always had that friendly banter, but secretly are you like, ‘Right, I'm knocking him off next week. That's it, he's off the top of the leaderboard’?”

Clearly amused by the question, the EastEnders actress responded: “When we first started, he really made it out to be like, ‘Oh, I'm not gonna be very good.’”

To which Ryan responded: “He's a liar! He's a liar!” as Maisie agreed: “Yeah! Then he came out and did that jive! And we were like, ‘Oh okay!’ So yeah, there's a bit of rivalry now because he actually fooled me a little bit.”
