Strictly's Maisie Smith shows off natural beauty in make-up free selfie as she counts down to ChristmasSeptember 28, 2020
STRICTLY star Maisie Smith showed off her natural beauty in a makeup -free throwback selfie as she looks ahead to Christmas.
The actress, 19, said goodbye to the summer with her latest Instagram post and shared one of her favourite festive tunes.
She wrote: "Summers gone; Alexa play Santa tell me by Ariana grande ⛄️."
The selfie, which was similar to one she uploaded just weeks ago, saw her skin washed in a sunset glow as she showed off her large hoop earrings.
Meanwhile Maisie is taking her preparation for Strictly Come Dancing seriously with some intense gym sessions.
The actress – who plays Tiffany Butcher inEastEnders – recently signed up to the dance competition which is set to start this time next month on the October 24.
The 19-year-old has been hitting the gym to give her the best chance of getting her hands on the the glitterball trophy.
Maisie took to her Instagram Story last week to scare off her competition with a gorgeous mirror selfie that displayed her amazing figure.
She opted for a light purple sports bra and some navy shorts to show off her hard rock abs and ridiculously toned thighs.
And the TV star completed the look with some white and pink trainers, hot pink over the head headphones and styled her fiery red hair into a low pony tail.
The star added a sticker over the snap that stated "work in progress".
Maisie is definitely a show favourite this year with her dancing experience.
She has already won Strictly thanks to a cha-cha with Kevin Clifton on the Children In Need special and admitted she's had training in hip hop and street.
Now the professional dancers are desperate to be her partner on the much-loved show.
Aljaz Skorjanec and Giovanni Pernice are said to be all lobbying the show’s producers in a bid to be paired with her because of her exceptional talent and her ready-made fanbase from her EastEnders role.
Earlier this month Italian Giovanni dropped a major hint on Twitter by liking a tweet Emmerdale actress Lisa Riley posted, saying she is desperate for him to soon be partnered-up to dance with Maisie.
During lockdown, Maisie has been entertaining fans with her TikTok videos, which have also attracted thousands of views.
A source told The Sun: “All the male pros really want to partner with her, not just because she’s young and fit, but she’s also proven herself to be a brilliant dancer.
“She has a massive fan following, which often ensures contestants get far in the competition.”
Maisie is part of a reduced Strictly Come Dancing line-up for 2020 which also includes former labour politician Jacqui Smith, MIC star Jamie Laing, YouTube star HRVY, comedian Bill Bailey and former Royal Marine JJ Chalmers.
They will be joined by BBC Radio 1 DJ Clara Amfo, boxer Nicola Adams, GMB presenter Ranvir Singh, actress Caroline Quentin, former NBA star Jason Bell and The Wanted singer Max George.
When the fiery redhead isn't working a sweat up in the gym or training hard for the show, she's been up to her old tricks filming hilarious TikTok videos with her look a like mum.
