Strictly Come Dancing recruit Maisie Smith stunned fans as she struck a pose in gorgeous sun-lit snaps.

The 19-year-old actress, who’s put her name down for 2020’s Strictly, was heaped with praise as she shared the candid pictures with her 703,000 Instagram followers.

The Tiffany Butcher actress opted for a white summer dress and wedge heels in an ensemble that let her show off her golden tan.

She tied her hair back into a messy ponytail, remarking: “I look quite long for 5”3.”

Fans flooded the comments section, one branding Maisie a “babe” while another called her “gorgeous.”

Another shared a string of heart eyes emojis and wrote: “Prettiest girl ever.”

“You look fantastic,” another gushed.

Maisie was also called an “angel” and told she had “the most amazing figure.”

Since Maisie’s name was dropped for Strictly, reports have emerged that the show’s pros are scrambling to be paired up with her.

“All the male pros really want to partner with her,” an insider told The Sun on Sunday, “not just because she’s young and fit, but she’s also proven herself to be a brilliant dancer.

“She has a massive fan following, which often ensures contestants get far in the competition.”

Fans breathed a sigh of relief when the BBC confirmed Strictly would be going ahead after the Covid disruption had raised doubts.

And the line-up, which you can check out here, looks to be one of the most star-studded yet.

The Wanted’s Max George, actress Caroline Quentin and GMB’s Ranvir Singh are among the other big names that will be putting on their dancing shoes.

Jamie Laing will be there too, having sat out last year’s show due to injury.

And Olympic champ boxer Nicola Adams is set to make history as she takes to the floor in the show’s first same-sex partnership.

This means she will be dancing with another woman, professional Katya Jones reportedly already throwing her name into the ring.

Last year saw pros Johannes Radebe and Graziano di Prima perform a routine together, while Dancing on Ice welcomed their own same-sex couple in the shape of Ian “H” Watkins and Matt Evers.

Nicola’s told in recent weeks about how she agreed to put her name down for the show if she could dance with another woman.

“They wanted to know if I wanted to be on the show,” she said, “and I said, ‘Yeah, I’ll do it, but I want to dance with another female.’

“It’s really important, and it’s a big step for the show as well.
