As her alter ego, Hannah Montana, she secretly lives a double life as a famous pop star. She is like any other girl, facing challenges, but endures it with the help of family and friends. Robby Ray Stewart (Billy Ray Cyrus) is the widower father of Jackson and Miley Stewart.
One of the concept names for her alter ego was Alexis Texas, but the writers learned there was an adult entertainer with the same name of Alexis Texas. He is also Hannah Montana's manager, who was a former country singer.
The first series featured 15 episodes, and saw the likes of Charlotte Crosby, Stephanie Pratt and Joey Essex paired up with ordinary people.
And the second season, due to air next week, sees Joey return hoping it's second time lucky.
