31-year-old Maddie is a formally trained actor, and her first television credit following drama school was in an episode of Whitechapel.

In 2014, she landed the part of Nancy Carter, the daughter of Kellie Bright and Danny Dyer’s characters.

The same year she won the Best Newcomer Award at the TV Choice Awards, the Inside Soap Awards and the British Soap Awards.


The following year she won Best Newcomer at the National TV Awards.

Following her departure from Eastenders, Maddy dabbled in reality TV with an appearance on Masterchef in 2014.

In 2016, she took part in The Great British Bake-Off to raise money for Sport Relief.

Along with these TV appearances, Maddy starred as paramedic Ruby Sparks in Casualty.

Maddy is active on social media and dedicates a lot of her feed to good causes and her own random acts of kindness, such as giving away Bruno Mars tickets to her followers.

She also performed on stage as Imogen in an adaptation of William Shakespeare's Cymbeline at The Globe.

During the first lockdown, she took part in a fundraiser to raise money for theatre following its closure due to the pandemic.


Maddy recorded a verse from Cymbeline to contribute to the good cause.

Speaking about her 2021 return to Eastenders, Maddy has said she couldn’t wait to film with her old castmates.

"I’m so excited to be coming back and reconnecting with all the hilarious, warm, talented cast and crew and meeting some lovely new faces," she said.
