Maisie Smith wears huge comedy slippers for Strictly rehearsals ahead of final

Maisie Smith is making sure to keep her feet nice and snug ahead of the Strictly Come Dancing final, turning up to rehearsals in absolutely enormous slippers.

On Saturday night, Maisie and her professional partner Gorka Márquez will go up against Bill Bailey and Oti Mabuse, HRVY and Janette Manrara and Jamie Laing and Karen Hauer in a bid to win the Glitterball Trophy.

Each couple must prepare three dances for the finale, including one Showdance and two routines they have performed previously.

With just days to go until the series comes to an end, EastEnders star Maisie, 19, was pictured heading to rehearsals wearing a pair of pink leggings and a large coat to keep herself warm.

But the best part of Maisie’s outfit was the huge slippers she chose to wear.

The actor’s shoes were designed to look like a pair of white and grey Nike trainers, complete with the sports brand’s signature tick on the side.


With the winter weather steadily becoming colder, we’re admittedly feeling quite envious of Maisie’s choice of footwear.

A few weeks ago, the Strictly finalist posted several pictures on Instagram of herself wearing short shorts, writing in the caption that she has felt ‘very insecure’ about her legs over the past few years.

Among those who sent Maisie messages of support was none other than reality TV star Khloe Kardashian, who commented: ‘You have the most beautiful legs!!!!! Envy worthy!!!’

Khloe added: ‘I can not build my legs for the life of me! So I’m drooling over yours. You are gorgeous!!!!!!’

Maisie later admitted that she didn’t know how to respond to Khloe’s comment, having replied ‘Thanks chicken’ at the time.

‘I saw it and I didn’t know what to reply, like what can you reply to Khloe Kardashian?’ she told Zoe Ball on It Takes Two.

During the Strictly final, Maisie and Gorka are set to dance their Showdance routine to Idina Menzel’s We Need A Little Christmas.

They will also perform a Samba to Gloria Estefan’s song Samba and a Quickstep to Andy Williams’ When You’re Smiling.

The Strictly Come Dancing final airs on Saturday at 6pm on BBC One.
