Split: Maisie Smith and HRVY have reportedly called time on their romance after the fling ‘fizzled out’ during lockdown
A source said: ‘Maisie and HRVY flirted like mad on Strictly – and that wrap party snog sealed the deal. They played by the rules on the show and made sure that during the competition they didn’t take any risks.
‘Once it was over, however, they were all game for giving it a go. But just a few days after their kiss, the third lockdown came into play and it ended up being a total passion killer.
‘HRVY and Maisie’s romance just fizzled out – and both of them have been so busy working. Plus HRVY signed a huge new record deal earlier this month — so it’s all go.’

Rumours of a romance between the EastEnders actress, 19, and the singer quickly became a talking point during the 2020 series.
HRVY previously admitted he was attracted to Maisie while discussing his Strictly performances with OK! in October.
He said: ‘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.’

He added: ‘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.’
Maisie has also previously described the YouTuber as a ‘beautiful-looking guy’ but doesn’t want to ruin the friendship they have.

She told OK!: ‘We get along so well – there was an instant connection between us – and I knew straight away that we would be friends. Yes, there’s been ‘flanter’ [flirty banter], but I think it’s platonic.
‘We have such a laugh and, of course, there has been a bit of flirting… but it’s been harmless! I’ve not been thinking about boys at the moment. I haven’t had time. I’ve been liking getting to know him.’
When quizzed at the time on if she saw a romance between the pair, Maisie explained: ‘I think it would depend on how we did it. Right now… I think it’d be a ‘no’ as I love the friendship we have and I don’t want to ruin that.’
Success: HRVY reached the final of the competition with pro partner, Janette Manrara
