Speaking to Zoe Ball on Wednesday’s It Takes Two, Maisie admitted she was flummoxed by the praise, which came after the actress opened up about her body insecurities on social media.
“You have got Khloe Kardashian in your corner,” Zoe began. “She’s been stalking you on Instagram and she sends you this lovely message.
“When that appeared, what was your reaction?”
Maisie explained: “Someone in the studio said, ‘Do you know that Khloe Kardashian has commented on your photo?’ and I was like ‘Nooooo, surely not.'”
The EastEnders star, 19, had shared a string of pictures showing off her legs, admitting she is self-conscious about her pins.
And Khloe, 36, commented on the snaps, saying her legs are “envy worthy”.
Maisie was thrilled by the praise from the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star, saying she was “gassed”.
Khloe then went on to tweet about the exchange, telling a fan she didn’t know Maisie but wanted to “uplift” her.
She tweeted: “I don’t know her But that doesn’t mean that we can’t uplift one another. I would never in my life take my time to post something negative about any1.
“I will take my time to make someone smile. Spread love/positivity. She was insecure about her beautiful body, I wanted her 2notB.”
Back in November Maisie posted some photos of herself in a pair of skimpy green shorts in different angles, as she opened up about her insecurities.
Maisie said: “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.”
She went on to say that she has started to love herself and her legs.
Khloe commented: “You have the most beautiful legs!!!!! Envy worthy!!!
Maisie, who is dancing with Strictly pro Gorka Marquez, responded: “Thanks chicken x.”
But she played it a lot less cool on her Instagram Story, where she shared a screenshot of Khloe’s comment.
She wrote: “LOL why am I so gassed?”
“I can not build my legs for the life of me!
“So I’m drooling over yours… you are gorgeous!!!!!!”
