Maisie posted the snap on Instagram, telling fans: “My obsession with pink is getting a tad out of hand now.”

The actress also sported a purple bandana, a hot pink jumper and matching nail varnish.

Her infamous red locks were tied up for the shot, while a single loose curl fell over her face.

Fans rushed to compliment the snap, with one writing: “Wow imagine being this gorgeous.”

A second said: “Such a queen.”

Another added: “So beautiful!”

Maisie and professional dancer Gorka Márquez, 30, went on to score an incredible total of 24 for their week one dance.

The pair performed a Samba and all three judges – Craig Revel Horwood, Shirley Ballas and Motsi Mabusi – each gave them an eight.

The star often takes to social media to document her busy life

Viewers were also left seriously impressed with Maisie and Gorka’s performance, with many tipping them for the final already.

Earlier this week, the star was spotted enjoying a McDonald’s as she prepared for week two of the competition.

Maisie wore a yellow headband and a dark jumper as she sipped on a large drink in a dressing room.

It’s believed the soap actress is already being watched over by Strictly execs after she and fellow hopeful HRVY shared a string of flirty messages online.

Strictly has put in place rules to keep cast and crew safe from the virus, and as a result this year’s stars can’t mingle.

A source told HOAR: “Maisie and Hrvy are being monitored by the producers after it’s become clear their connection could easily lead into a Strictly romance.

“They’re both young, single and hot and the thought is that the two of them could bring the other cast into risk if they break the guidelines and get closer.

“They have both been told, as have the rest of the cast, that kissing is off limits. Usually the Strictly cast are very tactile. Not in 2020. The cast have secretly named bosses the ‘passion patrol’.”
