The Strictly Come Dancing summer tour, Strictly Presents: Keeep Dancing, kicked off last week.

And Maisie Smith got fully into the swing of things on Friday night at the Globe Theatre in Stockton-on-Tees, as she put on a sizzling display with professional dancer Neil Jones during one steamy routine.

The former EastEnders star, 20, looked incredible in a metallic gold dress with fringe detailing and cut out sections, which highlighted her toned pins as she spun around the dancefloor.

Maisie wore her strawberry blonde locks loose in a carefree wavy style and opted for a glamorous coat of make-up to finish her showstopping look.

Later in the show, she switched her look and changed into an elegant white gown with a feathered hem and gem-encrusted bust, which was covered in black and gold sequins.

During the routine – which she was partnered with Neil for – Maisie beamed as she waltzed with the tuxedo-clad star as they twirled around the floor.
