Maisie Smith worries fans after sharing backstage snap with Strictly partner Gorka Marquez

Conveying their surprise at seeing Maisie and Gorka in the dreaded dance off for the second week in a row, another fan remarked: “Can’t believe you’ve been in bottom 2, you’re brilliant.”

The couple, who performed a high scoring salsa routine placing them joint second on the leaderboard, found themselves in the bottom two with Caroline Quentin and Johannes Radebe.

The couple were saved by the judges and therefore made it through to the next round of the competition.

This weekend they will perform a Quickstep to When You’re Smiling by Andy Williams.

Strictly Come Dancing continues Saturday at 7.15pm and Sunday at 7.25pm on BBC One, hosted by Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman.
