Last year’s Strictly Come Dancing finalist will travel to the Isle of Raasay in the Scottish Hebrides to film in the coming weeks.
A source said: “Maisie wants to show there’s another side to her beyond the sweet Tiffany she’s been known for playing since she was six.
“She got a glimpse of life beyond EastEnders in Strictly and enjoyed the freedom.
“She’d signed up when she told ’Enders bosses she was leaving, and can’t wait to get stuck in and prove her grit.
“She’s determined to give a good account of herself but knows it’ll be tough.”
Singer Alexandra Burke, 33, Love Island’s Wes Nelson, 23, and Paralympian Aled Davies, 31, were the only celebs from 12 to pass the course in the Channel 4 show this year.
