EastEnders actress Maisie Smith’s incredible transformation from child soap star to singer and Strictly CiN winner


EASTENDERS actress Maisie Smith last night won Strictly’s Children in Need special after impressing fans with her hidden dance talent.

The child star first joined the BBC One soap as Tiffany Butcher in 2008 when she was just seven years old.

Now at 18, Maisie describes herself as an actress and recording artist who enjoys posting videos of herself singing on Instagram.

She documents her glamorous life to her 411,000 followers, giving fans a sneak peak inside her life when she’s not filming EastEnders.

Maisie takes her health and fitness seriously and regularly posts snaps from the gym.

And she doesn’t miss an opportunity to show off the results, as she poses in bright coloured crop tops.

Her life now is a world away from when she first joined EastEnders in 2008 as a little girl.

After leaving with her on-screen family in 2014, she returned last year and got caught up in a dangerous drug-ring in one of the soap’s gritty storylines.

More recently, her 16-year-old character Tiffany eloped with her “soulmate” boyfriend Keegan to Scotland.

It echoed the past of her her dad Ricky who ran off to Greta Green to get hitched to Sam Mitchell.

Now at 18 she has returned to the soap

Maisie celebrated turning 18 with a boozy birthday bash with friends in July.

Despite being so young, she’s already enjoyed a successful career since starting off in stage school as a youngster.

Last night she won Strictly Come Dancing’s EastEnders special for Children in Need alongside her co-stars Ricky Champ and  Louisa Lytton.

She told Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman: “I had the most amazing week, I couldn’t have asked for a more wonderful team by my side, it’s just been amazing.”

Maisie impressed fans so much that they now want her to star on the main Strictly show next year.

Danielle Harold wrote: “Killed it girl.”

Louisa Lytton added: “I’m your biggest fan.”
