Maisie Smith struggles to contain her laughter as she smokes cigarettes with John White and Jake Leigh after rehearsal for the Strictly Tour
Maisie Smith joins Jake Leigh and John White for a late night cigarette break during rehearsal for the Strictly Come Dancing Tour in London on Friday.
The former EastEnders star, 20, couldn’t hold back her laughter as she sat outside a hotel with the 32-year-old Great British Bake Off winner and professional dancer – who doesn’t appear on the BBC One show.
She kept things casual in a gray zip-up sweater, which she paired with a coordinating pair of joggers and mismatched pink fluffy slippers.
