Fresh off sending excitement levels soaring with the announcement she has been cast as Doctor Who’s new companion, 18-year-old Coronation Street actor Millie Gibson has had style watchers talking since she shared a dramatic new hair look on Instagram. The former soap star revealed that her signature flowing strands had been snipped into a shorter look.
