Maisie showed off her athletic frame in her tiny denim skirt with distressed edging, while wrapping the straps of her knitted crop top around her upper body. 

The actress covered up somewhat with a cropped white shirt worn as a jacket, and flashed a wide smile as she strolled along surrounded by her friends. 

Maisie has appeared as Tiffany Butcher on EastEnders for 13 years, after joining at the age of six in 2008, but decided to leave after reportedly getting a number of big money offers for other projects. 

Announcing her departure from the BBC soap on Friday, Maisie said: ‘It’s time to say farewell to Tiff! I’ve grown up on EastEnders since 2008, and have learnt from the best over the past 13 years.

Screen star: Maisie joined EastEnders at the age of six in 2008, but decided to leave after getting a number of big money offers for other projects

It’s claimed that Maisie chose not to renew her contract this time because she looked to pursue other projects elsewhere. 

Maisie has reportedly previously been offered six-figure deals with clothing and beauty brands following her successful Strictly stint, however her contract with the BBC meant she had to decline them.
