He told Metro: “We’ve created this incredibly cinematic sequence for this week’s set, which I’m incredibly excited about.
“The gist of the week is we all know, and it hurts me to say it, but we all know Kelly is leaving the show.
“So we thought, well, the fact that Millie is going and that’s why Kelly is going is what allows us to get really big and do something incredibly high.”
Admitting that the show is “like a home” for her, the tough decision wasn’t taken lightly by the star, who also had to convince her parents it was the right move.
Speaking to Metro about her departure, Millie explained: “I don’t have any responsibilities – I don’t have kids, I don’t have a mortgage or anything, I’m still thankful to live at home.

“So I thought I’d just go see what else the world has. If so, then it does – that would be very good, wouldn’t it? I thought I might as well see what happens when I’m young.’
The actress, who turned 18 in June and previously starred on the CBBC show Jamie Johnson, was adamant about leaving while she is still young.
“Since I’m so young, I thought I had to leave. It was a decision that I would always have in the back of my mind if I didn’t make it, so I just had to go for it and see what happens,” she continued.
But when she admitted that her parents had their reservations and urged her to stay in the “safe” role, Millie explained that she had to “trust my instincts.”
She joined the show in 2019 as daughter Rick Neelan (Greg Wood), before becoming a regular cast member in 2020 — even winning a National Soap Award for her performance on the TV series.
