Strictly 2020: How tall is Maisie Smith and is she a trained dancer?

Strictly Come Dancing has allowed EastEnders star Maisie Smith to shine in a whole new way.

From smashing her dances to being able to wear her dream costumes, she’s done amazingly well, even after being placed in the dance-off twice on the BBC series.

The actress, of course, is best known for her role as Tiffany Butcher on EastEnders, which she started when she was aged just six.

However, a lot has happened since then, so here are all the answers to your burning questions about Maisie.

How tall is Maisie Smith?

Maisie stands at 1.55 metres tall – or five foot one (without her glitzy Strictly heels of course).

She’s five inches shorter than her Strictly pro partner, Gorka Marquez, who stands at five foot six.

Is she a trained dancer?

Maisie does have some prior knowledge of dance, but has insisted she had no ‘technical ability’ before her appearance on Strictly.

She explained on This Morning: ‘That was an absolute fluke. I’m not going to lie, I’ve got dancing experience.

‘I’ve done a bit of hip-hop and street dance throughout my time but I have no technical ability at all.’

How old is Maisie?

Maisie is 19 years old, making her one of the youngest contestants Strictly has ever had.

Her fellow EastEnders star Louisa Lytton was the youngest of all, aged just 17 when she took part in the show in 2006.

Who is Maisie’s Strictly pro partner?

Maisie was paired up with Gorka, who has been on the show since 2016.

He took a year off in 2019 after he and his wife Gemma Atkinson welcomed their daughter Mia.
