Maisie Smith has revealed that her mother has “never seen me so happy” while discussing her relationship with Max George.

The former EastEnders actress, 21, and The Wanted singer, 34, made their first television appearance as a couple on Thursday’s episode of Loose Women.

Speaking about the reaction to their relationship, Maisie said: ‘The people we allow into our lives are very happy. Mom had never seen me so happy. That’s all I really care about.

Maisie also said that she and Max were friends before they started dating and “they’ve always had a good bond.”

She said: ‘We’ve known each other for two years, he’s always been a good friend. I always get nervous for interviews.

‘I remember walking around, thinking “what if I could just blank out?” He was the only person who could zen me. We have always had a good bond and trust.

Max and Maisie went on the Strictly Come Dancing tour in 2021 and were reported to be dating soon after.

But talking about how they were friends first, Max admitted that Maisie told him a lot of things he didn’t want to know when they were getting to know each other.

He said: ‘When we had the Strictly tour, she told me everything, too much. About guys, things I don’t want to know!

Asked if they plan to live in Manchester or London, Maisie said: “We’re going to live in London, he’s got a place in Manchester which I’m doing.”

‘I’m doing a tour right now for Strictly Ballroom. We’re in Guilford for Christmas, so I’ll drag Max and my family down and we’ll stay in a cabin.

‘I bought a little tree from pound land and we are going to make it very pretty.’

The couple also talked about going public with their romance on social media.

Max explained, “Speculation drove that more than we would have had in the beginning, but once it was in there, we did everything here, it was like it was out there.”

‘If we do something, we can also publish it because there is nothing we don’t do.’

It comes after the couple responded to “concern” over their 13-year age difference in their first joint interview as a couple.

The former soap opera actress would have been just nine years old when the “Wanted” singer rose to fame, releasing his first single in 2010.

Max and Maisie addressed their controversial age difference, with the musician insisting that it “never crosses my mind” and that he “admires” Maisie, even though she is younger than him.

The couple made their relationship official in August, moving in together just weeks after meeting on the Strictly Come Dancing live arena tour.

Maisie addressed the backlash in this week’s edition of Hello! magazine, telling fans that he has “never” noticed the age difference due to the couple having “similar thoughts.”

She said: ‘People ask me, ‘Do you notice?’ and i never have. We are so related. I have friends in their 30s and 40s. You connect with who you connect with.’

Max added: ‘It never crosses my mind. Maisie has already done so many things that amaze me, I admire her.”

Maisie described her romance with the boy band heartthrob as “every girl’s dream”.

She added: “When I get off a train, Max will be standing on the platform with a bouquet of flowers and I feel like I’m in a movie.” It’s every girl’s dream and I found it in Max.’

The couple also opened up about their path from friendship to romance, and sparks started to fly when the Strictly cast and crew went on a group vacation to Portugal this summer.

Max said: ‘Towards the end of the holiday, I could feel that I was looking at her differently. I thought: “What is going on here?” He was quite nervous to see if he was reciprocated.

He described their first kiss as “mental”, while Maisie likened the passion to “fireworks”.
