Wearing a grey tracksuit, she is seen showing off her natural red curls.

Maisie, who is best known for playing Tiffany Butcher-Baker on EastEnders, wrote on the first pic: “Wet hair n that.”

She then dropped another snap, adding “Another 1.”

When does the Strictly Live Tour start?

Maisie is currently in a London hotel as she trains for the tour, which kicks off next week.

She was announced as Kai Widdrington’s partner last week, following the news that AJ Odudu can’t take part due to injury. AJ missed out on last month’s final after damaging ligaments in her right ankle.

Maisie was a finalist in the 2020 series, dancing with Gorka Marquez.
