Strictly Come Dancing stars pose for first group pic as EastEnders’ Maisie Smith swaps her teddy PJs for a glam ballgown


Strictly Come Dancing stars posed for their first group pic as EastEnders’ Maisie Smith swapped her teddy PJs for a glam ballgown.

The BBC dancing competition are teasing fans with glamorous makeovers ahead of the show’s premiere on October 17.

The BBC have released the group picture

The group shot shows all of the stars sitting together after getting their Strictly makeovers.

They also showed off the individual makeovers in a special promo on Instagram.

Among those is the much anticipated Maisie Smith, who dazzled with her complete transformation.

She started off in her pyjamas, including green shorts, yellow slippers and a teddy bear T-shirt.

With her red locks falling over her shoulders, she looks shocked at the blue tasselled dress in her hand.

However, she jumps in the air and suddenly she’s stunning in the dress and a pair of heels.

Other transformations include comedian Bill Bailey jumping from a black T-shirt with black trousers into a jazzy blue velvet suit number.

And there’s Olympian Nicola Adams morphing from a long white shirt and trousers to a sparkly top with long black trousers.

Jamie Laing – who was forced to miss out on last year’s show due to an injury – first started off in baggy black trousers, a white top and a black cardigan.

Then after a click he was wearing suit trousers and a pink jacket.

Maisie hass been busy preparing for her upcoming appearance on the dancefloor with a plethora of gym sessions, which she has shared on Instagram.

The star clearly wants to get her hands on the the Glitterball trophy and is taking preparation for Strictly seriously with regular gym sessions.

Maisie is definitely the show’s dark horse this year with her dancing experience.

She has already won Strictly thanks to a cha-cha with Kevin Clifton on the Children In Need special last year and admitted she’s had training in hip hop and street.

Maisie shot to fame paying Bianca Jackson’s daughter Tiffany in EastEnders when she was just five years old.
