The pictures showed the two participants coming together to film It Takes Two, even though the government had to keep a distance of at least two meters to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

The two also chatted with their professional partners Gorka Marquez and Janette Manrara when they stood together outside the studio.

The foursome all appeared to be facemask-free as they stood a close distance from one another before talking to Gethin Jones about It Takes Two.

Maisie wore a long-legged display in a tiny denim miniskirt, a pair of suede cowboy boots and a purple padded jacket.

Elsewhere, HRVY looked smart in an all-black ensemble of skinny jeans and a fitted tee.

Pro Janette, 36, looked glamorous in a leather pencil skirt and sheer top, while Gorka, 30, opted for a sleek black pant suit.

A source told MailOnline: "The stars are reminded to be at least two meters apart.

"It's hard to care for, as everyone knows, but it's more important now than ever to Strictly that everyone stay as far apart as possible."

MailOnline has reached out to representatives from Strictly Come Dancing, Maisie Smith, and HRVY for comments.

Days before Strictly started, there were doubts whether singer HRVY would be competitive as he tested positive for coronavirus.

After it was announced, the singer tweeted in October: & # 39; Tomorrow guys, just a little thought. I am only 21 years old and in good health. It just goes to show that being young doesn't make you invincible. So please wear a mask and have a nice day. & # 39;

This week, Strictly was thrown into chaos after Nicola and Katya were dropped for Pro-Test positive for coronavirus.

Elsewhere, judge Motsi Mabuse announced that she had to self-isolate for 14 days after she rushed to Germany because her dance school was "targeted".

On Friday, the bosses confirmed that pro dancer Anton Du Beke will stand up for Motsi on the jury.

The BBC has put in place strict new guidelines for this year's couples to ensure they are safe while filming. This includes couples creating their own bubbles so they can exercise and perform.

However, celebrities and professionals from separate bubbles are not allowed to mix while filming or behind the scenes and must maintain social distance at all times.

In the early hours of Sunday morning, HRVY and Maisie were spotted leaving Strictly studios just a minute apart after performing on the show's film week.

The couple were the last to leave Elstree Studios. HRVY departed at 4:36 a.m. before Maisie was closely followed in a separate car at 4:37 a.m.

It came after Maisie referred to HRVY, with whom she was repeatedly linked, as a "beautiful looking man."

HRVY previously pointed out a possible romance with the actress in its OK! Magazine column when he shared how he is "a little excited to see things bloom".

Sources also claim the couple instantly made a connection on the show, with a source telling The Sun, “There's chemistry between Maisie and HRVY, both singles, and they exchanged lyrics.

The pair's sighting came just hours after it was revealed that Nicola and Katya were forced to withdraw from the show after the professional dancer tested positive for COVID-19.

Boxer Nicola will now have to isolate for two weeks, which means she will not be able to continue the competition as COVID-19 guidelines do not allow her to be paired with another professional.

Katya was stunned to learn that she tested positive because she showed no symptoms and is now convinced she must have discovered the virus in a sandwich shop after telling the chefs that she didn't mingle with anyone else, since she lives alone.

She and Nicola trained together on Monday and Tuesday – and Katya tested positive that day, according to sources.

A source close to Nicola told MailOnline: “She hopes her strict dream is not over.

"There are many hurdles to overcome, but if it is possible that she can compete with Katya in the 2021 series, Nicola will want to make it."

Except: The sighting came hours after Nicola and Katya were forced to retire from the show after it was revealed that the dancer tested positive for COVID-19

While the Strictly performers were in social bubbles, they are allowed to continue their daily business as usual. Insiders now claim that "angry" BBC bosses have vowed to tighten the rules for the remaining celebrities.

A strict representative confirmed to MailOnline that the bosses are not opening an investigation into how Katya got infected with the virus, as there is no indication of where she may have caught it.

They added that since the dancer lives alone and has only left her home to exercise, she has not socialized with others.

This also means that in the Strictly final next month there will only be four couples instead of the planned five.

A source told The Sun that the BBC's top bosses insisted the pro dancer "must have broken strict guidelines" and are angry that others are now in danger.

Chaos: Elsewhere, judge Motsi Mabuse announced that she had to self-isolate for 14 days after she returned to Germany because her dance school was "targeted" (picture with husband Evgenij Voznyuk at an event in Frankfurt in the year 2017).

The insider went on to say that at least four members of the show crew were now isolated after coming into contact with Katya.

A source said: & # 39; The BBC's top brass players are mutinous. It was made clear to everyone that they must follow the protocol at all times – and some say Katya has clearly broken the rules.

“Katya lived alone in her apartment and people have been speculating about whether she caught it when she got a coffee and a sandwich from the stores during a training break.

"The BBC has spoken to all the celebs and dancers since and were told to bring packed lunches from now on."

The source that this year's stars added is now paranoid. You may have contracted the virus because Katya was asymptomatic. Celebrities urged their families to receive supermarket deliveries and isolate as much as possible.

Strictly speaking, the bosses later confirmed in a statement that Nicola cannot return the next series because she has an "unfair advantage" over the other celebrities

Strictly put in place rigorous new measures to ensure filming can continue amid the COVID-19 pandemic, including regular testing and placing the couples in separate "bladders" so they can exercise and perform together.

These "bubbles" mean any celebrity can openly mix, train, and perform with their professional partner, and vice versa. However, they are prohibited from mingling with anyone outside their bladder while filming or exercising.

Despite these new restrictions and some celebrities who may have to live alone while participating in the series, they are not limited to visiting public areas such as shops and parks.

In some cases there were stars live alone while the other half of their couple can stay with their family or household.

This series was also the first in the show's history to air without a live audience after England fell into a month-long lockdown.

This year the pros have already recorded all of their group appearances while isolating themselves as a bubble in a hotel before breaking up to join forces with their celebrity partners to create their own bubbles.

Shortly after Strictly confirmed the news of the couple's exit, Katya posted on Instagram that her "heart was broken" before paying tribute to her partner.

A strict spokesman confirmed to MailOnline that Katya is asymptomatic and the couple are now separately isolating themselves under the latest government guidelines.

Nicola said in a statement: & # 39; Hey guys! I am utterly devastated, my Strictly journey has come to an end so soon. I had so much more to give and so many people to win this over to!

“But I just want to say a big thank you to Katya for being the best dance partner anyone could ask for. She pushed me out of my comfort zone and it was an amazing experience.

“I am disappointed not to be competing, but in these unprecedented times and frustrating as it is, the COVID measures in place are to keep everyone safe and I am doing what I can to help.

"I'll be spending the next 14 days isolating myself so I want to apologize in advance for the ridiculous amount of TikToks I'll be posting in my newfound free time when I'm not playing!"

Katya said, “Dancing with Nicola was an absolute inspiration. She gave her everything every week and we were so excited to create more dances in competition.

“Of course I am devastated to leave this trail, but I made a friend for life and loved every moment of this special journey. I want to wish all the remaining couples the best of luck! & # 39;

Sarah James, Executive Producer of Strictly Come Dancing, added, “We are incredibly sad that these unfortunate circumstances mean that Nicola and Katya are unable to continue Strictly.

& # 39; They are a brilliant partnership and had accomplished so much while on the show.

"We would like to thank them for their commitment and although their time in the competition is unfortunately over, we hope that they can dance again in the future."

How's Strictly 2020 going during the COVID-19 pandemic?

Strictly Come Dancing has put in place a number of strict measures to ensure the new series can continue during the COVID-19 crisis.

Celebrity participants and their professional partners are tested regularly, with the cast and crew being instructed to isolate themselves in case they contract the virus.

The bosses have already confirmed that celebrities who tested positive at the beginning of the series will be banned from the show. According to reports, celebrities are on standby.

The professional dancers have already recorded their group performances after isolating themselves together in a hotel.

It has also been claimed that celebrities and professionals will be banned from the show if they are caught kissing while filming.

Strictly in 2020, the series was also shortened to just nine weeks, with 12 instead of the usual 15 celebrities taking part.

The show's annual trip to Blackpool has been canceled, along with this year's Halloween and Christmas specials.

Only three judges – Craig Revel Horwood, Shirley Ballas and Motsi Mabuse – will be in the studio with separate podiums after Bruno Tonioli was unable to show up due to travel concerns.

Senior judge Bruno has announced that he will be "remotely involved" and hopes to return to full-time work towards the end of the show while filming the US version of the show in Los Angeles.

With a limited studio crew, you may not be able to build large sets. Hence, producers use augmented reality which adds computer generated elements.

To ensure that the participants can work closely with their partners, they are "gushed" for training and tested regularly.

Strictly speaking, there will still be a live audience, but fans will sit in groups at separate tables and only participate if they come from the same household or bubble.
