After becoming somewhat of a dancing sensation, Maisie was signed to the touring theatre show Strictly Ballroom, where she joined Kevin Clifton in the production. The show is based on Baz Luhrmann’s award-winning film phenomenon, with Maisie taking the role of Fran in the show.

With the end of the tour in sight, Maisie’s mum posted a heartwarming tribute to her daughter, gushing: "Such a fab-u-lous night watching Strictly Ballroom Tour with 50 family and friends! Only three shows left now Maisie."

In the photo, Maisie and her mum are matching in leopard print ensembles, with Maisie wearing a white T-shirt and jeans with a beige leopard print coat featuring neon spots. Her mum Julia was seen wearing a blue leopard print dress.

Fans were quick to praise Maisie’s performance in the comments section, with one follower commenting: “She was absolutely the highlight of the show for me on Tuesday! I was in ore of her! that level of talent only comes from exceptional hard work, dedication and discipline!” whilst another agreed: “Maisie is a star!”

Others gushed about how lovely the duo looked, with one fan saying: “Stunning mother daughter”, while another added: “Mother n daughter both look amazing x”.

Maisie’s performance has received high praise, with fans also impressed by the actress’ singing voice.
