Former BRIT school student Milly Zero is best known for her role in EastEnders as Dotty Branning after joining the cast back in 2019
The star won the role in 2019 after attending the prestigious BRIT School in Croydon where she achieved three A levels.
Speaking when the announcement was made earlier, Milly said: “I am honestly so excited to be playing Dotty Cotton and joining the E20 family, especially playing alongside June Brown, who I have been watching on my telly since I was a young girl.
“Her and Dotty have such an interesting relationship to explore with a complicated history, so I can’t wait to see what the future holds for them. It all feels very surreal and I am buzzing already.”
However, the role she plays in Albert Square is worlds away from her real-life with her famous boyfriend and glamorous nights out.
Here is a look inside Milly’s life away from Albert square including her high-end nights out sipping cocktails with pals, jetting abroad to catch rays and posing alongside her lookalike mum.
Milly is often seen posting her glam night out to her Instagram page featuring multiple friends and events.
She’s regularly seen sightseeing and enjoying the London lifestyle.
Life isn’t always serious for the young star and she is a fan of enjoying girls holidays – such as visiting party places to Malia and Ibiza.
Milly recently celebrated turning 22 by having drinks on the 31st floor of The Shard in London and documented the fun night out on social media.
The actress is close to her family, especially her lookalike mum as they celebrated her 50th birthday together with a summer garden party.
