When asked if she thinks there are British accents that should get more screen time in Hollywood while appearing on Hot Ones five years later, Millie said: "I love a Liverpudlian accent.

"Any one from Liverpool just sounds… I can't do the accent so don't ask me, but I support the football team Liverpool."

Adding on their FA Cup victory: "We are very proud."

Millie was joined on the cast for the most recent series by a man with Liverpool links in the form of Joseph Quinn – who played Hawkins rocker Eddie Munson.

He told The Echo: "I spent my childhood going up to West Derby and I still see them whenever I can. I've got some lovely history up in Liverpool and it's an amazing city."

With Stranger Things set to return for a fifth and final season down the line, Millie will be hoping to see Liverpool win more major trophies in the meantime.
