Strictly’s Maisie Smith and Max George defend their age gap as they discuss romance

Strictly Come Dancing‘s Maisie Smith and Max George have defended their age gap as they discussed their romance.

The duo went official as a couple in September, after they met while taking part in Strictly in 2020 and subsequently both appearing on the show’s live tour.

While there’s a 13-year age gap between the former EastEnders star and The Wanted band member, the couple told Hello Magazine that their ages don’t cause any problems in their relationship.

“People ask me: ‘Do you notice it?’ and I never have. We’re so like-minded,” the actress said. “I’ve got friends in their 30s and 40s. You connect with who you connect with.”

Max added: “It never enters my mind. Maisie has already done so many things that I’m in awe of – I look up to her.”

The musician revealed that he is currently living with Maisie, and they plan to get their own place in London, as well as a home in Manchester.

Max has previously defended his relationship against complaints after Ulrika Jonsson criticized Maisie for sharing her emotions in social media posts.

Max is no stranger to public relations, having previously dated Hollywood superstar Lindsay Lohan during the height of The Wanted’s global fame. He was in a relationship with Stacey Giggs from 2018 until earlier this year.

Strictly Come Dancing airs on Saturdays and Sundays on BBC One, while spin-off shows Strictly: It Takes Two airs on weeknights on BBC Two. Both shows also stream on BBC iPlayer.
