I was going for a solid minute with just screaming and punching, like a proper cat fight.
She expressed that neither of the women wanted to fight each other, but they just shut their eyes and “went crazy” at each other.
Maisie told The Sun: “They went: ‘Go,’ and I wasn’t expecting her to just go crazy. But she literally just went: ‘Agh,’ and just screamed. I think she shut her eyes, screamed and just went crazy.”
The actress added: “I thought, okay, I need to step up my game. I was going for a solid minute with just screaming and punching, like a proper cat fight.”
After the fight, she was nicknamed Tiny Temper by the Directing Staff.
Two black eyes and fears for broken eye sockets

She also said that she suffered extreme bruising on her thighs which lasted for a while after finishing the show.
Maisie said her experience on the show made her feel “like Wonder Woman”.
She also revealed that she was the youngest contestant on the show, which made her feel “empowered”.
