Maisie Smith has quit her role as Tiffany Butcher on the BBC soap opera EastEnders.

The actress, 20, appeared on the series for 13 years, having joined it at the age of six in 2008, but decided to leave after apparently receiving a number of important offers for other projects.

She said, “It’s time to say goodbye to Tiff!” I’ve grown up on EastEnders since 2008, and learned from the best over the past 13 years.

“I am very excited for my next challenge and thank the BBC for the opportunity it gave me when I was six years old. “

EastEnders executive producer Jon Sen added, “We are all very sad to see Maisie leave.

“She has been a wonderful member of the company during her time at EastEnders and it has been a privilege to watch her blossom and become the star that she is.

Maisie finished second in Strictly Come Dancing last year after competing with professional Gorka Marquez, 31.
