EastEnders Maisie Smith looks just like Tiffany as she leaves Strictly rehearsals in character’s iconic gold jacket

GOING FOR GOLD

EASTENDERS star Maisie Smith looked just like Tiffany Butcher as she was spotted at Strictly rehearsals - in the character's iconic gold jacket.

The 19-year-old actress, who will reveal her dancing skills on the show tonight, showed her gym-honed legs in a pair of tiny shorts.

Soap fans will remember the gold jacket, which Tiffany made her trademark, appearing on Albert Square for years.

Many viewers were horrified last year when she handed the gaudy garment over to pal Bernadette Taylor before heading off with evil drug dealer Evie.

But it appears to have made an unexpected comeback - sparking hopes Maisie will be performing a routine as Tiffany in a bizarre crossover between the two shows.

Maisie and partner Gorka Marquez are performing the samba to the song Samba by Gloria Estefan on tonight's show.

She has been spotted outside the Strictly studios in a variety of outfits, appearing a few days ago in a crop top and heels.

Maisie and co-star HRVY appear to have struck up a bit of a flirtation before the show has even properly begun.

He gushed that he "loves" Maisie Smith and she "looks incredible" just a day after she left a flirty comment on a pic of him in his pants.
