Just before Christmas of last year, Milly’s farewell moments aired after she announced her departure on Instagram a month earlier.
After three and a half years, she declared, “I’ve come to the conclusion that my adventure with the icon that is Dotty Cotton has come to an end.” I can’t even begin to express how fantastic and life-changing my time on EastEnders has been, or how much I am going to miss it.

She reacted angrily and made an effort to set the property on fire when she learned that Dot had actually given the house to Sonia Fowler (Natalie Cassidy).
Rocky (Brian Conley) stopped her, but after realizing there was nothing left for her in Walford, she departed the Square.
