Maisie, 21, posed for two at-home snaps which she posted to Instagram on Thursday night – wowing her fans.

The red-headed star – who is currently taking part in the Strictly Ballroom tour – donned the striped waistcoat and matching shorts.

She covered up with a striped blazer, completing her look with a pair of patterned tights – accessorising with a long necklace.

Maisie completed her look by brushing her hair back into a sleek look, pushing it back behind her ears and down her back.

She donned a glamorous palette of make-up, including a dark smoky eye and chiselled brows as she struck a pout to the camera.

The star sat on top of her kitchen counter as her beau Max, 33, no doubt snapped away from behind the camera.

“Mum, I am a rich man,” she captioned the snap, as her boyfriend immediately took to the comments to respond.

“Mum, I am a lucky man,” Max wrote under the snap alongside a red love heart emoji.

It comes after The Wanted singer Max hit out at claims his relationship with Maisie is “controversial” due to their age gap.

He took to his Twitter account to call out those criticising the 13-year gap between himself and the former soap star.

The loved-up duo have been inseparable since going official in August and are already living together.

Max – who first met Maisie on Strictly Come Dancing and later saw sparks fly on the show’s tour – was clearly irritated as he posted the message: “I’ve just read that apparently mine and Maisie’s age gap is ‘controversial’…

“A woman in her 20’s and a man in his 30’s… what the f**k are they implying? I’d love an explanation please.”

Earlier this week, Maisie also vented against those calling out their age difference.

Addressing the backlash to their romance, Maisie told Hello!: “People ask me: ‘Do you notice it?’ and I never have.

“We’re so like-minded. I’ve got friends in their 30s and 40s. You connect with who you connect with.”

Max said: “It never enters my mind. Maisie has already done so many things that I’m in awe of – I look up to her.”

The Wanted star proved his dedication to the actress last week by getting her face tattooed on his arm.

He paid a visit to his favourite tattoo parlour – INK’D in Fulham, London, to have a lion and Maisie hybrid inked on his arm.

The impressive artwork features the EastEnders star’s piercing eyes, replicated from one of her Strictly Come Dancing images.
