EastEnders' Maisie Smith says she's 'taken a turn for the worse' as she struggles with cold-like symptoms

EASTENDERS favourite Maisie Smith has told fans she's taken a "turn for the worse" in a dramatic video.

The 19-year-old Strictly Come Dancing star explained she was suffering in a post on Instagram.

She said: "Guys, I've taken a turn for the worse. I think I've got a common cold. I don't know how this has happened.

"I take all the precautions. I sanitise. I wear masks. I don't know how this has happened."

The theatrical nature of the funny video suggested the star, who was earlier pictured at a photo shoot, was poking fun at herself.

Strictly made a big star of Maisie when she appeared on the BBC dance hit last year.

The Sun has told how she could earn £1million over two years after being inundated with lucrative offers following her stint in the contest.

But to cash in, she would have to quit her EastEnders role because the terms of her BBC contract mean she is unable to accept.

The actress has played Tiffany Butcher in the soap – with a break of several years – since she was just seven years old.

She's said to be weighing up her options, but sources say she is “incredibly loyal” and likely to stay until at least the end of next year.

Maisie has also found herself a lucrative sideline selling off her old clothes for as little as £7.

The actress is flogging her unwanted clothing on social shopping app Depop, with new items added every week.

A keen gym-goer, Maisie has an impressive range of sportswear. The cheapest of which is a plain black sports bra that sold for £7.

Other branded items by the likes of Nike and GymShark are priced higher.
