Maisie Smith and her Strictly Come Dancing co-star HRVY are accused of breaking social distancing rules.

The pair – who are both the youngest contestants on this year's show – were spotted arriving together for It Takes Two filming as they seemingly ignored the government's advice to keep their distance.

In images obtained by The Sun, the pair can be seen walking closely together despite the show's bosses plea for them to keep apart.

Maisie, 19, and her pro dance partner Gorka Marquez were spied to be walking just inches in front of HRVY, 21, and his pro dance partner Janette Manrara.

What's more, none of them were wearing masks.

An insider told the publication: "The stars are being reminded that they must stay at least two metres apart.

"It's hard to maintain, as everyone knows, but it's more important than ever now for Strictly that everyone stays as far apart as possible."

Maisie and HRVY have been at the centre of romance rumours since the show's start last month, as the pair have had several flirty exchanges on their respective Instagram snaps.

Mirror Online has contacted Maisie and HRVY's reps for comment, while BBC declined to comment.

And earlier this week, the singer even refused to rule out the rumours, saying that nothing can be on the cards until Strictly is done and dusted.

And given they're both favourites to reach the final, that could be a long way down the road.

The BBC have brought in strict measures to make the show Covid-safe, which means very little contact – and certainly no physical contact – between the competing celebs.

It's even been reported that the BBC are keeping an extra-close eye on the pair to make sure there's no kissing.

Pressed on the romance rumours by Roman Kemp on Capital Radio this morning, HRVY remarked: "Do you know what, she's great, she's a very good dancer, she's very beautiful, she's a lovely girl, but right now, it's not like I can see or touch anyone anyway, not that I'm touching anyone, but because of all the Covid restrictions what can you do, right now I'm going to focus on the dancing but Maisie is a great girl."

Roman wasn't cowed, asking: "But….when the show is finished and Covid regulations can end?"

"You never know, you never know…" HRVY said, keeping it vague.
