Clearly amazed by the message, the star also shared a screenshot of it with her 883,000 followers. Over it, she wrote: "LOL why am I so gassed," followed by a laughing emoji.

Writing about her insecurity, Maisie had honestly told fans: "Here lies a collection of photos taken at the exact same time, however, from different angles, under different lighting.

"The past few years I’ve been VERY insecure about my legs. I covered them up as much possible. No matter how many people told me “cellulite is natural.. everyone has it..” I still hated them.

"It’s taken me a while but I’m starting to accept these aspects of myself that I’ve always seen as “flaws”. I wore gym shorts (out of the house) for the FIRST time a couple of months ago n I was so so proud of myself [heart emoji]. I wish I could I say that I LOVE my body but I’m still working on that," [sic] followed by a sweating face emoji.

Maisie went onto explain that she hopes her post can help others embrace the parts of them they deem as "flaws".

The red-haired beauty, who recently gave behind-the-scenes insight into a typical Strictly live show day, continued: "The reason I posted this was because I understand that it’s SO hard to love yourself and see your “flaws” as “qualities”. We ALL have things we want to change about ourselves.

"But I hope this can help other people feel more confident about their own insecurities. BECAUSE YOU ARE FRIGGING BEAUTIFUL."

Maisie added: "And because self love is the best love," alongside a pink heart emoji.
