Maisie, who recently left her tole as Tiffany Butcher in the BBC soap, showed off her gym-honed figure in dark grey leggings, which she teamed with a white T-shirt, white trainers and a black padded jacket. 

The actress left her auburn locks curly for rehearsals and covered her face with a black mask as she walked alongside Tilly.

Tilly meanwhile slipped into a white padded jacket and a loose-fitting grey jumper, white she teamed with chic cut-out black leggings and white trainers.
