EastEnders star Maisie Smith looks totally unrecognisable in throwback snap with on-screen sister Shona McGarty

EASTENDERS star Maisie Smith looked unrecognisable in a sweet throwback snap with her on-screen sister Shona McGarty.

The 19-year-old actress – who first joined the BBC show when she was just six years old – looked adorable in a photo from her earlier days on the soap.

The TV star's mum, Julia, unearthed the throwback snap sharing it to her Instagram page.

The mischievous pair stuck their tongues out for the cheeky pic as they took a break from filming.

Maisie, who has played Tiffany Butcher since 2008, posed for the pic wearing her trademark puffer jacket and had her fiery locks tied up in a ponytail.

Julia wrote: "By popular demand, this Thursday’s throwback is Tiff & Whit! On screen sisters for 13 years!! Shona such a beautiful soul."

Fans were quick to compliment the photo, with one writing: "They're so cute!"

Another posted: "Lovely photo, hope we get to see more of them together."

Ex-EastEnders star Jessica Plummer was among the cast members to 'like' the post.

Maisie first starred in the soap between 2008 and 2014, making a brief return in 2016 for a guest stint.

However, in 2018 the actress reprised her role again, and has remained in the soap ever since.

Earlier this year, it was reported that Maisie plans to quit the soap again when her contract ends in October in a bid to launch a film career.

She enjoyed a new level of fame when she took part in Strictly Come Dancing last year, where she reached the final – and the star now hopes to capitalise on that success.

A source said at the time: "Maisie is hugely ambitious and wants to test herself away from soaps."

They added: "The sensible move might be staying put for another year. But the intention is to leave in October."
