This hit Disney series stars Miley Cyrus as Miley Stewart –a girl who leads a dramatic double life. Miley has just moved to Malibu from Tennessee where she is already a successful pop singer called Hannah Montana, but she elects to hide her career from her new friends.

The series follows Miley as she negotiates the difficulties of school life –from getting good grades, to impressing boys and being accepted by the various social cliques. She can always count on her dad and manager, Robby –played by the actress’s real-life father, country crooner Billy Ray Cyrus –to help make any situation better.

As awkward as Miley often feels as a teenager, she undergoes a transformation when she performs on stage as Hannah Montana. Unbeknownst to the students in her new school, Miley is a successful singer who travels the world, entertaining fans with the music written by her manager/dad. A straight blonde wig combined with a flashy pop star style allows Miley to keep her identity as an international star a secret –and, most importantly, she knows that she is liked for who she really is.

When Hannah’s two biggest fans, Lilly and Oliver –who also happen to be Miley’s closest friends – discover the true person beneath the costume, Miley is relieved to share her secret as she endures the trials and tribulations of middle school.

In today’s first episode, Miley’s best friend, Lilly Truscott, sneaks into Hannah Montana’s dressing room and discovers her secret.

In the second episode of today’s double bill, Oliver falls madly in love with Hannah Montana and is shocked when Miley reveals her true identity. Miley then hatches a plan to help Oliver realise that Hannah is not the girl of his dreams. Elsewhere, Jackson accidentally buys himself a ‘girlie’ car.
