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

The series follows Miley as she balances her extraordinary dual identity. By day, she negotiates the pitfalls of school life and by night, she is an international singer complete with a blonde wig and glitzy pop star persona.

Miley is helped by her two new best friends, Lilly and Oliver, who are the only people at school who know her secret. She can also count on the support of her dad and manager, Robby –played by the actress’s real-life father, country crooner Billy Ray Cyrus.

In the first episode of today’s double bill, Miley’s teacher sends her and her friends off to do some fundraising. Miley, Oliver and Lilly are tired of Ashley and Amber always raising the most cash, so they team up and resolve to do even better. Meanwhile, Jackson recruits Cooper to help him defeat Robby at ping-pong.

In today’s second episode, Robby gives Miley and Jackson credit cards for use in emergencies, but they naughtily use them to go mad at the market. To pay back the money, Miley decides to sell some Hannah Montana memorabilia, including a pair of fake sapphire earrings that she was given to wear in a video shoot. The pair raise enough cash to cover the shopping spree –but there is just one problem… The jewellers want the earrings back, because they accidentally gave her the real pair –worth $250,000!
