Maisie Smith insists she's already won Strictly Come Dancing in her eyes after reaching Musical week.

The EastEnders star, 19, is one of the six remaining celebrity contestants left to dance it out for the all-important Glitterball trophy.

Maisie and her pro dance partner Gorka Marquez have managed to dazzle the judges on their way to the top, and it seems as though Maisie is pretty chuffed with her being in the top six.

And the pair are set to showcase their latest dance routine as they take on the Little Shop Of Horrors for Musical Week this weekend.

Appearing on Strictly: It Takes Two tonight alongside Gorka, Maisie said: "This is my week."

She added: "I've said it all the time. This is the one. I had to reach this week - I've won the show now in my eyes that I've reached musical week. It's a dream. I'll be in my element."

Host Rylan Clark-Neal jokingly added: "Gorka, I wish you the best of luck with her tomorrow, because I think she is going to be running rings around you."

It comes as Maisie admitted she's worried over how she'll be able to juggle EastEnders filming simultaneously with her stint on the hit BBC One dance show.

It seems as though Maisie's time management skills might be put to the test as she will have to balance both of her career ventures at the same time.

Appearing on The One Show, Maisie said if she and Gorka make it to the final she will be expected to learn up to three new dance routines over the "next couple of weeks".

And when quizzed on how she's managing to juggle her dance rehearsals alongside filming for EastEnders, the teen said: "I am a busy bee right now."

Maisie added: "I have just been eating a lot, a lot of coffee and just sleeping as much as I can otherwise I don't know how I stay awake.

"Honestly, especially because the next couple of weeks on the show - if we're still here - you learn two dances and then three dances in a week and film EastEnders at the same time."

*Strictly Come Dancing returns Saturday at 7.25pm on BBC One.
