One critic said the star looked “rough" with a bare face and others pointed out how different she looked, with one troll suggesting the change was “scary”.

Another said the star was “only fit" when she was "drowned in make-up”.

However, the actress didn’t take it lying down, posting a defiant response on her Instagram Story.

Sharing a screenshot of some of the abuse she’d received, Maisie defiantly wrote: “Imagine trying to overcome your insecurities and accept your differences when people are out here casually calling you ugly.

"The pressure we are under to all look the same is so unhealthy.”

"I am who I am and you don't have to like it, but I do,” added the star, who is in a relationship with The Wanted’s Max George.

Many of the star’s fans weighed in after her comment to say how “beautiful” she looked.

Others told Maisie, who is best known for playing Albert Square's Tiffany Butcher, that she should just “ignore the haters”.

“Why in this day and age do we STILL constantly feel the need to be so hateful," asked one.

"You do realise that she is a young, actual person, suffering the same insecurities as the rest of us but just in the limelight for many more people to see.”

“You are a beautiful young lady enjoying a really wonderful life, those keyboard trolls haven’t got a 1/4 of what you have,” remarked another.

“Ignore them horrible comments, it is only a reflection of bad people and jealousy – you are beautiful and we all know it,” said another admirer.
