From starring as Tiffany Butcher in EastEnders to dancing her heart out on Strictly Come Dancing, Maisie Smith has wowed fans across the UK with her talent.
However, the 21-year-old, multi-talented star has been hiding more tricks up her sleeve as news of a secret music career hangs in the balance.
Having started her musical theatre debut in Baz Luhrmann's Strictly Ballroom show, Maisie is set to relaunch her music career with the help of boy band beau, Max George.

The Daily Star have compiled a list of all the hints of Maisie's looming music career and what to expect from the actor-come-singer.
The 'new Dua Lipa'
After Maisie announced she'd quit her lifetime role on EastEnders as Tiffany just last year, rumours began circling that the young actress had set her sights for Hollywood.
Although she could easily smash a role on the big screen, some thought she could be in the running to be the next big pop star.
According to The Sun on Sunday, music label bosses were lining up their offers to give the actress a chance at pop stardom.
The source said: "Maisie can sing, dance and act — she’s a triple threat. A couple of major record labels are desperate to sign her as they think she could be hugely successful.
"She could be the next Dua Lipa or Rita Ora, appearing in films alongside performing — the world really is her oyster. Her voice is impressive and she has a huge range.", they revealed.
Teen music vid
Back in 2016, Maisie was adamant to shake off the childlike persona of Tiffany and step into the confident teeange that was Maisie.
At just 15 years old, she released her debut music video for her track Good Thing and showed off her moves which would later see her succeed in BBC's Strictly.
Flexing her vocals in a derelict warehouse, wearing crop tops and mini dresses, Maisie showed EastEnders fans that she was all grown up now and even took on a maturer approach with her lyrics.
Speaking about the romantic pop track, Maisie said: "I've always wanted to make a cool pop record that people could relate to, dance to and feel good listening to.
"By teaming up with my producer Darren Martyn to make Good Thing, I feel like we achieved that. I am so excited to finally let people hear it!", she explained.
Since going official with Strictly co-star Max George, Maisie has reportedly been plotting to make her return to music with the help of her singer boyfriend.
Max was a part of The Wanted for five years before the band split. The Wanted came back together one last time before the death of bandmate Tom Parker.
Sources told The Sun that it's been "no secret" that Maisie wants to get stuck in with music.
"She’s made no secret to Max of her desire to try her hand in music and Max has been very encouraging", the source revealed.
They said: "He’s enjoyed great success over the years with The Wanted so has plenty of contacts who can help Maisie achieve her goal."
Bieber music covers
Between 2016 and 2017, Maisie set up her own YouTube channel to flex her signing skills to the masses.
Posting her first cover of Canadian megastar Justin Bieber's track Let Me Love You saw Maisie reach over 200,000 views on the video streaming site.
In the caption of the video, she wrote: "I love this song and thought I'd add my own twist to it. I hope you like it and thank you for watching my video x".
Fans praised her singing skills, with one commenting: "Wow your voice is amazing. I remember you as little Tiff. Carry on with the singing. Respect!"
Another added: "Omg didn't know she actually sang! She's so cool. I love her in #EastEnders from when she was younger to now. You go girl x"
Her channel now has 30,000 subscribers and her covers have between 200-400K views.
Crop top dance moves
Taking to TikTok, Maisie let fans in on a more personal side to her life and regularly joins in with the latest dance trends on the app.
Dancing away to an explicit dance mix by Ayesha Erotica called Nasty x SexyBack, Maisie showed off her dance skills post-Strictly and perhaps what she could do in a soon-to-come music video.
In the upload, Maisie wore a printed corset crop top and danced with pal Rory O'Connor. She wrote the caption: "Clearly neither of us knew what was going on."
Despite slamming her own moves, fans took to the comments to praise her dance style.
"Brilliant Maisie you are a great dancer xx", one wrote.
A second added: "I love u so much and ur so pretty plus ur such a good actor".
