EastEnders star Maisie Smith was left in tears on Strictly Come Dancing tonight after performing her routine.
The actress, who plays Tiffany Butcher in EastEnders, was overcome with emotion as she spoke to her family after performing her routine.
Tonight's show saw Maisie transform into Elsa from Frozen as she and dance partner Gorka Márquez performed an American Smooth.
After topping the leaderboard last week, the pressure was on for Maisie.
However, the star did amazing as she won praise from the judges again.
It was only after she performed that the emotion came on for Maisie.
Host Claudia Winkleman was seen going over live to speak to her family.
And Maisie broke down as she got a heartfelt message from her family.
Claudia was seen asking them: "How proud of her are you?"
Maisie's dad replied: "We are so proud, every week she smashes it out of the park.
"We love you mate, you really are doing a great job."
Her mum then chimed in: "I'm struggling right now. I just want to hug my little princess."
As well as the video message, Maisie's mum visited her in her in the studio earlier in the week.
Talking about that to Claudia, Maisie said: "I was not expecting my mum in the studio, I really needed it."
Maisie has also been hitting headlines this week as fans speculate about a romance between her and fellow Strictly star HRVY.
The redhead refused to rule out a romance with the YouTuber – but says "not right now."
"He is a beautiful-looking guy," Maisie told The Sun.
"But I have only seen him for a couple of hours a week so I am still enjoying getting to know him.
"I don't know what would happen in the future, but for now we are getting along really well as friends."
