EastEnders actress Maisie Smith discussed how Tiffany Butcher-Baker’s lip filler storyline in the series is ‘relatable’.
Tiffany will go behind her husband Keegan Baker’s back to get more cosmetic procedures in upcoming episodes, which causes an issue in their relationship.
The 20-year-old opened up about teenage insecurities and said Tiffany is going ‘what a normal teenager would experience’.
Maisie explained: “She’s an 18-year-old, she’s been through a lot as a character and she’s quite insecure about herself.
“Then Keegan’s job has been taking off, he’s really been doing well for himself and it’s making Tiffany question herself and if she’s enough for him.”
The actress added to Digital Spy : “She’s a very relatable character on the show. She’s young, she’s in love, and she’s got a lot of pressure on her as well as being a teenager and being hormonal and experiencing what a normal teenager would experience.
“She’s got a lot of insecurities in herself.”

However, Maisie believes that Tiffany’s allergic reaction to the procedure will likely to be the “last straw”.
On Monday, August 2, Tiffany becomes more obsessive about her appearance.
Keegan also points out that her best friend Dotty has been treating Vinny Panesar poorly since they slept together.
The following day, Keegan discovers that Tiffany has been supplying his pregnant sister Bernadette Taylor with diet pills.
The fallout from this revelation continues on Thursday (August 5) as Keegan realises Tiffany for giving his sister the harmful drug and also is furious when he discovers that his wife has had another cosmetic procedure done.
Meanwhile, Tiffany is struggling as her infection from her cosmetic work worsens.

Maisie recently celebrated her 20th birthday and was pictured outside a nightclub.
She was reportedly forced to cut the boozy celebrations short after leaving the bar looking bleary-eyed.
Onlookers had claimed that some of the members of her group were turned away from a bar at 2am for being ‘too drunk,’ leaving Maisie less than impressed and forcing them to call it a night.
The TV star took to her Instagram to “clear up” the rumours and claimed to have left the bar because of “disgusting” treatment to her and pals by bar staff.
“I don’t usually do this but just wanted to clear up that this did not happen.”
Maisie told followers it had been her choice to leave and that she would not be returning to the bar, explaining: “After having such an awful experience, I voluntarily left the bar.
“I was disgusted with how the staff at Nikki’s Bar treated us and will not be returning.”
*EastEnders usually airs on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday evenings on BBC One but all of this week’s episodes are available on BBC iPlayer.
