EastEnders’ Maisie Smith and Zack Morris break silence on ‘off-screen romance’

EastEnders' Maisie Smith and Zack Morris have broken their silence on rumours that their soap romance between their characters Tiffany Butcher and Keegan Baker has continued off-screen.

The EastEnders cast members have denied they are dating in real life after they were spotting leaving the soap's 35th anniversary party in East London at the weekend.

Maisie, 18, told MailOnline: "I film most of my scenes with Zack, naturally we've built a great friendship. Nothing but mates."

Zack, 21, who plays Keegan Baker added: "The majority of our filming days are spent together so we have grown closer as friends but nothing more than that."

The pair looked very cosy as they shared a taxi home from the party, as an insider claimed that their on-screen chemistry had spilled into real life.
