Maisie Smith is reportedly set to take part in SAS: Who Dares Wins, following her departure from EastEnders.
The actress, who portrays Tiffany Butcher in the BBC One soap, is said to be joining a group of fellow celebrities in the gruelling Channel 4 show.
‘Maisie wants to show there’s another side to her beyond the sweet Tiffany she’s been known for playing since she was six,’ said a source.
‘She got a glimpse of life beyond EastEnders in Strictly and enjoyed the freedom.
‘She’d signed up when she told ’Enders bosses she was leaving, and can’t wait to get stuck in and prove her grit,’ the source continued to The Sun.
‘She’s determined to give a good account of herself but knows it’ll be tough.’
Metro.co.uk has reached out to Channel 4 for comment.
It was confirmed earlier this month that Maisie, 20, would be departing EastEnders after 13 years in the serial drama.
‘It’s time to say farewell to Tiff!,’ the star said at the time. ‘I’ve grown up on EastEnders since 2008, and have learnt from the best over the past 13 years.
‘I’m very excited for my next challenge and thank the BBC for the opportunity they gave me as a 6 year old.’
Maisie competed in the 2020 series of Strictly Come Dancing, where she was partnered with pro-dancer Gorka Marquez.
The 20-year-old stunned audiences with her performances on the BBC dance series, with routines, such as her Quickstep, Samba and Jive leaving both the judges and the fans in awe.
After smashing it in the final, Maisie and Gorka were crowned runners-up, losing out to Bill Bailey and Oti Mabuse.
