Strictly Come Dancing's Tilly Ramsay almost flashed Maisie Smith as the pair got ready to kick off the show's tour.


In a hilarious video the EastEnders actress, 20, shows her fans what's going on backstage at the Utilita Arena in Birmingham.

Showing off several bunches of blooms the stars received ahead of their debut yesterday, Maisie tells her followers she was "feeling the love".

Student Tilly, 20, was on top form too as she pops up in the vid fully made-up in a red dressing gown and starts dancing.

However it's not long before she realises her robe is slipping as she dashes off laughing, which causes Maisie to crack up too.

Despite her excitement, Tilly's tour performance was plunged into chaos yesterday when it was revealed her dance partner Nikita Kuzmin had tested positive for Covid.

The professional dancer has been forced to pull out of some of the shows after testing positive for the virus – but he has reassured fans he'll be back as soon as he can.

The tour will see several of last year's celebrities as well as stars from previous series strut their stuff on the dancefloor – but the Ukranian, 24, has been forced to take some time away from the tour after the positive test.

"So sad to be missing a portion of the Strictly Live Tour, but unfortunately I tested Positive for COVID-19," he wrote on Instagram.

"Lots of luck to all the amazing Strictly Cast. Will be back as soon as I can :)."

Tilly took to the comment section to admit she couldn't wait to see her dance partner as she wrote, "Missing you."

Her co-star Maisie stepped in at the last minute for TV presenter AJ Odudu, who injured her ankle on the show in December.

The presenter, who was partnered with Kai Widdrington on the show had hoped she'd be fit enough to return, but she's still recovering.

Maisie, who played Tiffany Butcher in EastEnders, competed in Strictly in 2020 alongside dance partner Gorka Marquez.

The actress is now dancing with Kai as the pair prepare to wow the judges and the audience nationwide.

The 33 shows will be choreographed and directed by Strictly judge Craig Revel Horwood, who will also be performing.

The tour will be Maisie's first gig since her last scenes for EastEnders aired in December, after she announced her departure in October.
