Millie rose to fame on TikTok, posting viral parody videos and has amassed over 1.5 million followers on the platform and the jump into acting felt like a natural next step for the rising star.

Fans and friends of Millie's are excited to see her make her Summer Bay debut tonight.

"Stop it," fellow influencer Jade Tunchy commented.
