EastEnders Actress Maisie Smith returns to play the daughter of Ricky and Bianca Butcher.

EastEnders actress Maisie Smith is reprising her role as Tiffany Butcher and her character will be back on screen in the New Year.

Maisie debuted in the soap back in 2008 when she was just six years old. She was an immediate hit with viewers playing the cheeky but cute daughter of Bianca Jackson and Ricky Butcher. When she returns, Tiffany's more like her mother than ever before (and not just in her choice of puffa jacket!). She will appear on her sister Whitney's door step in the New Year and is set to cause chaos - but what's brought her back to Albert Square?

Of her return, Maisie, who's now 16, says: “It’s great to be back on the set of EastEnders. It’s been lovely to see some old faces and meet new ones too. I can’t wait to show everyone how much Tiffany has changed.”

Tiffany was last seen in the Square in November last year when she made a surprise return with her brother Morgan for Whitney and Lee’s wedding. Prior to this, Tiffany left Walford with her family in 2014 when Bianca decided to start a new life in Milton Keynes.

During her time away from EastEnders, Maisie launched a singing career but it looks like she's going to have her hands full making mischief in Albert Square for the foreseeable future!
