Maisie Smith is preparing to exit EastEnders and it promises to offer dramatic scenes with the actress warning fans they’ll be ‘shocked’. 

The 20-year-old plays Tiffany Butcher-Baker but will be leaving Albert Square after deciding to try other projects following her successful stint on Strictly Come Dancing

Of course, details on her departure are being kept under wraps until the big day but Maisie has teased some tidbits. 

Speaking to Susanna Reid and Martin Lewis on Good Morning Britain, the actress said: ‘I think it’s going to be quite a shock, I haven’t even told my family how it happens so it should be a good shock.’ 

When Susanna asked in a roundabout way if she was gone for good – aka not leaving in the back of a black cab, aka getting killed off – Maisie responded: ‘Listen, you never really leave EastEnders, they always manage to find a way to come back. They always bring people back from the dead.’ 

‘Even if I did, they’d bring me back at some point,’ she laughed.

Maisie recently explained how emotional it was to film her final scenes on the BBC One soap, and said: ‘Shona [McGarty] and I literally cried the whole way through and after, we got so emotional. 

‘We’ve said goodbye on the show before the first time round like six or seven years ago but it was even harder this time round because we’ve built such a lovely sister bond.’

She added: ‘It was a sad couple of weeks because we film out of order so I had my last scenes with people spread across a month.’ 

Earlier in her GMB interview, Maisie opened up about her battle with anxiety and why she has chosen to support the programme’s 1 Million Minutes campaign to encourage people to get talking. 

‘Growing up in the limelight as a teenager, you’re very judgemental of yourself, so when you do see comments of other people judging you, it can add to the strain of the things you’re already going through,’ she explained. 

‘I think people do think I’m confident because I just cover my nerves with a big smile, and that’s what I’ve been doing my whole life, really.’ 

Good Morning Britain airs weekdays at 6am on ITV.
