Maisie Smith is said to have signed up to strut her stuff on the famous ballroom floor in the upcoming series of Strictly Come Dancing.
The 19-year-old EastEnders actress is said to have clashed with bosses at the BBC soap over promoting brands on her social media accounts including TikTok, which has seen her amass an army of followers.
Maisie, who catapulted to fame playing loudmouth Tiffany Butcher, was recently at the centre of an investigation due to her "unruly" behaviour.
Speaking to The Sun, an insider claimed it was "weird" to give her the opportunity to appear on Strictly as her future faced uncertainty at the broadcasting corporation.
"It is unthinkable that Strictly would sign her after the few weeks she has had," they said.
"The show is the pinnacle of the BBC and gives rising stars and established ones a huge step to more fame.
"So it's very weird to give someone whose future was very unclear just weeks ago such an opportunity."
They went on to explain what could be the reason behind Maisie's signing: "Perhaps they see it as a way of nailing down a rising star rather than her leaving and taking with her a young audience."
It's been reported that Maisie was offered a large sum of cash from record labels to promote their client's records on her viral videos.
Maisie, who boasts 1.7 million followers on the social media site TikTok, had previously asked bosses at the Beeb if she could accept similar deals, but was subsequently turned down.
It's claimed by The Sun that Masie had said she would walk away from the programme if things came to a head.
Should Maisie take to the dancefloor, she will be joined by the likes of singer Max George, former NFL player Jason Bell and Olympic boxer Nicola Adams - who will make history as one half of Strictly's first same-sex pairing.
