Strictly Come Dancing star Maisie Smith has transformed her body as she gears up to compete in this year’s series.
The EastEnders actress has been working hard for the past few months to make sure she’s in peak physical shape before the show begins later this year.
Maisie took to Instagram to show off her progress so far, and the results are pretty mind-blowing!
The Tiffany Butcher actress showed off her muscles in a purple sports bra and a pair of navy shorts.
She captioned the snap: “Work in progress.”
Maisie has already proven that she’s got what it takes on the dancefloor.
She won Strictly’s Children In Need special, so the star could be set to be the owner of not one, but two Strictly titles by the end of the year if she plays her cards right.
Maisie Smith divides Strictly Come Dancing fans
Fans have since claimed it’s “unfair” on Maisie’s fellow contestants as she prepares to take part in this year’s main show.
Taking to Twitter, one shared: “I really like Maisie but not only is she professionally trained already, but she was also trained by Strictly professionals themselves for a Children in Need special.”
Another wrote: “Didn’t she win the CIN Strictly final? So already trained up!”
A third added: “I feel like we know what to expect with her after seeing how good she was.”
Meanwhile, others defended Maisie, saying: “She said that she has had ‘training’ but not this kind of training. To be fair after this year THIS is what we need just some Strictly!”
A second commented: “They do like one week of dancing for Children In Need and do one dance style, she just probably won’t be given that one to do in the competition.”
Who else is joining Strictly this year?
Also in this year’s line-up is Ranvir Singh, Caroline Quentin, Max George, Clara Amfo and Jason Bell.
The series will also see its first ever same-sex couple with former boxer Nicola Adams.
Nicola said she’s thrilled to get the chance to learn how to dance and is proud that she gets to be “part of the movement for change, diversity and breaking boundaries in the entertainment industry”.
