After finding herself in the bottom two on Sunday night's episode of Strictly Come Dancing, Maisie Smith has been reportedly "crying all night".

The actress, who recently stunned fans with her incredible voice in a late-night singing session, was forced to dance again alongside her dance partner Gorka Marquez.

The 19 year old narrowly missed out on being eliminated and beat Max George and his partner Dianne Buswell to stay in the competition.

"The show's dancers and the other celebs have been rallying around and trying to lift up her spirits," the insider explained.

On the night, both Anton Du Beke, who was standing in for Motsi Mabuse and Craig Revel Horwood chose to save Maisie over Max.

Craig said: "Both couples were more concentrated and both couples took the notes we had given them and showed improvement, but the couple I'd like to save, Maisie and Gorka."

Anton went on to say: "Well I have to say it's so close. They were both immaculate through that dance.

"It literally was just the smallest timing. For me, I'm going to save Maisie and Gorka."

Although Maisie won the majority, head judge Shirley Ballas revealed she would have opted to save Max and Dianne instead.

Regular judge Motsi, who has been forced to self-isolate and miss two weeks of the show, later told BBC Radio 2 she agreed with Shirley and would have saved Max.

"I'm stuck here, I'm almost like Shirley, watching from the outside, maybe I might have saved Max," Motsi, 39, shared.

The dancer shared her agony at not being able to cast a vote and having to watch it unfold from her TV screen.

"But you cannot see from the TV screen as well as you can sitting there and being a judge," she explained.
