Maisie Smith and Max George on the age gap in their relationship
Max George and his girlfriend of over a year, EastEnders star Maisie Smith, have declared themselves “homeless”, with the pair restricted to sleeping at The Wanted star’s mum’s house.
However, it isn’t financial woes that have plagued them, but instead a lack of space, as the pair’s new home currently resembles a building site.
“We haven’t got a kitchen and the sofa is thick with dust, so we’re literally at his mum’s house,” Maisie told OK! magazine.
The soap star, who has starred in EastEnders on and off for a decade, joked that the woeful conditions at their Manchester pad, which is being renovated, are responsible for the pair taking so many holidays.
“[It’s] because we haven’t got a kitchen at home. We’re like, ‘We’ll go to Dubai’ just so we can have something to eat!” she chuckled.

Maisie has proudly described the pair as being like a “married couple”, joking that they scarcely leave the house when they’re in the UK.
She also revealed that their only arguments these days are over tins of paint, having battled it out to decide what colour their walls should be.
While the 22-year-old actress is keen on Barbie pink, Max would have preferred white – but it looks as if Maisie has won, for now.
For his part, Max joked: “No doubt, as soon as it’s done, Maisie will be at the theatre and we’ll have to come back down to London, so we’ll never live in [this house].”

For the time being, however, Maisie insisted: “We’re like two 50-year-olds who don’t leave the house any more!”
Manchester is Max’s home city, as he was born in Swinton and then attended school in Bolton – but Maisie is originally from Essex coastal town Westcliff-on-Sea, much further south.
Maisie reports that there have been some mishaps as the pair settle into domestic life, including Max attempting to put up a shelf using Superglue.
However, outside of homes and furnishings, she is fiercely ambitious, and hoping for a part in a new musical.
She was delighted when she landed the lead role of Fran in Strictly Ballroom: The Musical, which follows on from her sensational performance in the Strictly Come Dancing final with Gorka Marquez in 2020.
Max, whose pop band The Wanted have made him a firm fixture in the music industry himself, has declared his girlfriend a “ridiculous” singer.
In fact, Max has even claimed her vocal abilities are better than his, despite him selling more than 12 million records worldwide in the boy band and scoring multiple number one singles.
Maisie now has her sights set on a starring part in The Greatest Showman, which incorporates dancing, singing and acting all in one stage show – and has insisted she’s “the girl for the role”.
