The 15-year-old will star alongside Tess Daly, Fleur East and Emily Atack in the comedy drama about a teenage band trying to make it big.

Tillie said: “I am so delighted to have been cast in this new show and even more excited to watch the series, the cast were just brilliant, and I have learnt so much.”

The role follows success playing Tina Trotts alongside Sheridan Smith in David Walliams’ 2017 Christmas blockbuster Ratburger.

“I’m so lucky to have worked with some of my heroes already,” added Tillie.

“Starring in Ratburger was great fun and Almost Never will be a big hit because it is brilliantly written and very funny.”

Targeting 13-15-year-olds, the Almost Never series, starting in the new year, also stars Pussycat Dolls and MasterChef star, Kimberley Wyatt.
