The new couple is getting serious pretty quickly.

Singer Max George and EastEnders actress Maisie Smith are secretly dating.

The Strictly co-stars were spotted kissing on a plane on their way to Crete this week.

Max, aged 33, and Maisie, aged 21, met during Strictly Come Dancing and grew closer during the Strictly live tour.

The pair were spotted on a flight to Crete together for a romantic getaway. A passenger told The Sun that the couple was all over each other during the flight.

“They looked like a very loved-up couple — they were all over each other for the entire four-hour flight.

“We recognised Maisie at first. They were both wearing sunglasses even on the plane and Max was also wearing a red bucket hat, so it looked like they were trying to be a bit incognito.

“They are definitely an item.”

Since splitting from his ex-girlfriend Stacey Giggs, Max and Maisie have also been to Portugal together.

A source said the pair are completely smitten.

Their relationship is getting serious pretty quickly with Max telling his friends that it is already serious.

The Gold Forever singer said he is falling in love with the actress.

Max was dating Stacey Giggs since 2018. The pair shortly rekindled their romance after Max lost his best friend and bandmate Tom Parker. Stacey was a great support for Max during the heartbreaking time, but the pair called it quits in June.

Another source told The Sun that this will be a “bitter pill to swallow”.

“To see him move on so quickly with another woman will break her heart.”

“She was always fearful of the Strictly curse and now it’s struck.”
