EastEnders star Maisie Smith appeared to be pictured smoking a strong smelling cigarette while driving her car. The actress, 19, shot to fame as Tiffany Butcher on EastEnders when she joined the soap as a child star in 2008. Soap star Maisie appeared to be smoking a large hand rolled cigarette behind the wheel of her car. The redhead puffed on her cigarette after she stopped her car to use her lighter. At the time, she was chatting away to a female friend who was in the passenger seat.

Maisie was seen driving around Two Tree Island, in Essex. The TV sensation still lives at home with her parents and her sister in Westclifon-Sea. Mirror Online approached Maisie Smith and BBC's representatives for comment. Her sighting comes after her incredible put down to trolls for callously calling her "vain". The actress gave a sassy response apologising if her happiness offended anyone but she said she was going to continue living happily in her own skin. Her brilliant response read: "I get a lot of comments saying that I'm vain and that I love myself.

"And you are absolutely right – I do love myself, and it's taken me a while to feel this way. "So I'm sooo sorry if my happiness offends anyone because I'm just living my movie, I'm just living happily in my skin. I think that should be celebrated – not discouraged. Correct me if I'm wrong, guys." Jealousy was rising on social media as trolls claimed the star was vain. Comments read: "Wow, you're hot but my god, don't you just know it! Vain much?"

Who has Maisie dated? Maisie has previously been linked to EastEnders co-star Zack Morris, 21, but the pair have since denied romance rumours after they were spotted "getting close" off screen. (Image: Instagram) The pair, who play newly married couple Tiffany Butcher and Keegan Baker, insisted they are "just friends" after a source tipped a "blossoming romance" between the pair. Maisie, who lives in a stunning family home by the seaside, said: "I film most of my scenes with Zack, naturally we've built a great friendship. Nothing but mates." And Zack added: "The majority of our filming days are spent together so we have grown closer as friends but nothing more than that." Their denials came after the pair were reported to have been "getting close" away from the soap and were spotted leaving a cast party together, which celebrated 35 years of the soap. A source told Mail Online: "Maisie and Zack are very close off-screen, as well as being a married couple in EastEnders. They were the only cast members to share the same cab home together after the party on Saturday night." (Image: BBC) While another insider added: "They couldn't resist showing their affections for each other, with Maisie tickling the back of Zack's neck as they left the party. "Romance blossomed as their characters grew closer, which only adds to their chemistry on-screen. "They're adorable together and the rest of the cast think it's really sweet they've connected in this way."
