Millie Gibson took a break from filming for Doctor Who to return home to Manchester for a spot of Christmas shopping and a Coronation Street reunion. The actress, who played Kelly Neelan in the ITV soap, was spotted in the city centre hitting the shops as she spent time away from her new role.
Millie, who was revealed last month as Doctor Who's next assistant, looked chic as she wrapped up in a cream coat for her chilly outing before enjoying a get-together with two of her former co-stars. The 18-year-old joined Kel Allen, who played her mum Laura in Corrie, and Georgia Taylor, who is famed for playing Toyah in the ITV soap, for dinner with the actresses sharing a glimpse into their reunion on social media.
The former soap star, who will play the 15th companion Ruby Sunday alongside Ncuti Gatwa's Doctor in 2023, looked stunning as she showed off her new hair. After landing her major first role since appearing in Corrie, Millie went for the chop. She headed to the salon last month where she kept her blonde locks, but has cut them into a stylish short bob.
In a snap posted by Kel, Millie could be seen holding up a glass of red wine after polishing off some delicious food. Kel and Georgia looked equally as gorgeous as their former co-star and friends, both styling their blonde locks into curls with bangs to frame their faces.
"Family Christmas," Kel captioned the snap. " The best nights are with you. So much love for my queenies x @realgeorgiataylor @milliegibbo." Georgia, from Wigan, was quick to respond to the post, writing: " You absolute honeys," alongside a red heart emoji.
And fans were thrilled to see them together and let them known in the comments, as well as sharing their own compliments. @ conor_mc_kenna said: "So cute that you all stayed besties." @lauren_benjamin_2001 wrote: "You're all stunning.

Georgia also shared her own string of snaps, featuring a selfie of the trio and their food. "Full heart and full belly with my darlings @kelallenuk @milliegibbo," she penned alongside the post. Millie was the first to respond, writing: "I love this," while Kel added in the comments: "Love youuuu both so much."
Charlie De Melo, who played Georgia's on-screen husband in Corrie, wrote: "Oh my goodness," alongside a love heart eyes emoji while Maria Windass star Samia Longchambon simply posted a string of red hearts before fans agains tarted sharing their delight and compliments for the ladies.
