EX EastEnder Maisie Smith cuddled up with Strictly Come Dancing pro Kai Widdrington as they headed out to dinner between rehearsals.

The 20-year-old has been announced as a last-minute replacement for AJ Odudu on the upcoming tour and seems to have already formed a great relationship with Kai, 26.

AJ – who was romantically linked to Kai throughout the series – was forced to retire after suffering a nasty ankle injury.

Masie, who finished second in the competition the year before, was more than happy to fill her shows and has been working hard over the past week.

But she took a break to eat something tonight and was seen chatting with Kai before heading home.

The star wore a tracksuit and Strictly t-shirt with former contestant Jamie Laing.

Maisie – who stopped playing Tiffany Butcher alongside Gorka Marquez last year – announced she would be attending this month.

She told fans: “So excited to be part of the @bbcstrictly team again on this year’s arena tour – dancing with the amazing @kaiwidd 💃🏻 Wishing @ajodudu a speedy recovery 🙏🏼❤️.”

While a burned-out AJ said: “I’m devastated not to be able to compete on the Strictly Tour due to an injury.

“I was hoping for one last dance with Kai, but of course I have to follow the doctor’s advice. I wish my Strictly family the best of luck on the road and I will definitely be there to cheer them on.”

It was a painful end to AJ’s Strictly journey after ligament damage forced her out of the finals with just a day’s notice.

When AJ and Kai weren’t rocking the dance floor, they were turning heads with their electric chemistry.
