Maisie Smith hasn't completely ruled out a return to EastEnders as Tiffany Dean, admitting that it "would be good" to return to Albert Square.

Maisie first started out on the BBC soap when she was just six years old, and appeared as Bianca Jackson's daughter from 2008 until 2014.

Fans recently saw Tiffany return to EastEnders for two episodes and appearing on ITV's Loose Women, Maisie addressed the possibility of a potential comeback.

She told the panel: "Who knows? It would be good, but I guess we'll see."

In the two years that Maisie has left EastEnders, fans have been sent into overdrive when it comes to her appearance. She appeared to grow up over night and her baby-faced character transformed into a fully-fledged teenager.

But while we are all still getting over how different Maisie looks now, she can't see what all the fuss is about.

"I really wasn't expecting it at all," she said. "To me, obviously, I don't realise that I have changed as I'm growing up."

Not only has her appearance changed, but Maisie is now taking a different path when it comes to her career and has switched acting for singing.

She explained she bagged the lead role in her school production of Annie, and that made her realise she wanted to pursue singing professionally.

"I was Annie in Annie," Maisie revealed, before joking: "There was quite a few people saying [about her getting the part], 'It's just because she was on EastEnders.' But as soon as I got that role, I loved it and ever since then I've wanted to do something with singing."

Maisie now has her very own single, 'Good Thing', and has released her debut music video for the track to her Youtube channel.
