Maisie Smith made her name as the adorable red-headed daughter of EastEnders' Bianca Jackson in 2008, but now the actress – who played Tiffany Jackson in the BBC soap – is barely recognisable as her former character.

One year after she left the soap with her on screen mother, played by Patsy Palmer, Maisie has surprised fans by posting a number of selfies which see her looking all grown up.

Her changing appearance has attracted lots of attentions from fans of the long-running soap, with many commenting that they didn't recognise the teen from her role as Tiff.

"She's gorgeous!" wrote one fan, while another drew comparisons to another famous teen: "As if Tiff from EastEnders now looks like a ginger Kylie Jenner."
