EASTENDERS’ Maisie Smith was sure to capture her Instagram followers’ attention last night when she posted several shots of her clad in a pair of fluorescent green hotpants.
The 19-year-old, who was recently announced as part of this year’s Strictly line-up, posed in a tiara for an impromptu photo shoot at a driving range.

In the photos, Maisie donned a pair of skintight shorts which she paired with a loose-fitting purple T-shirt over a black long-sleeved top.
The TV star worked her flame-coloured hair into a tousled style and kept her loose strands in place with a tiara while holding a golf club.
Captioning the post, she penned: “Realised I was no good at golf so did a saucy golden hour photo shoot instead #whenlifegivesyoulemons”.
Her sultry snaps come as her EastEnders castmates flocked to congratulate her, after the actress revealed that landing the gig was “a dream come true”.
Last week, The Sun Online exclusively revealed Maisie’s signing on Thursday – weeks after she was caught smoking dope in her car.
Strictly also confirmed her appearance on Twitter, and the actress was later seen outside Elstree Studios, Hertforshire.
Maisie, who has played the soap’s Tiffany Butcher since 2008, said on Instagram: “NEWS IS FINALLY OUT 😍🎊 Been keeping this a secret for too long! Absolute dream come true.”
Her co-stars immediately responded with messages of congratulations.
Louisa Lytton who plays Ruby on the soap and has also taken part in Strictly wrote: “Knew this would happen! Winner.”
While Danny Walters who plays Keanu said: “Congratulations Maisie x”.
While James Bye who stars in the soap as Martin Fowler wrote: “I would blame me abd @lorrainekellysmith for letting this slip a bit early!”
Last year’s Strictly stars Saffron Barker and Karim Zeroual also congratulated her for landing the gig.
Last year, she and pro Kevin Clifton won a Children In Need version of the show.
Joining her on the dancefloor will be MP Jacqui Smith, 57, who was famously caught up in the expenses scandal after claiming public cash for two porn films watched by her hubby.
Boxer Nicola Adams, 37, is in Strictly’s first same-sex couple.
Others in this year’s line-up include singer Max George, 31, and comedian Bill Bailey, 55.
