Matilda runaway success at Olivier Awards

West End musical Matilda picked up a record number of awards at this year's Olivier awards held at the Royal Opera House in London.

The critically lauded show that has entertained thousands of people on theatre breaks took home seven prizes. The figure breaks the record for the highest number of honours ahead of Nicolas Nickleby, which won six awards in 1980.

Cleo Demetriou, Kerry Ingram, Sophia Kiely and Eleanor Worthington-Cox jointly took home the Best Actress in a Musical prize while other awards included Best New Musical, Best Director for Matthew Warchus and Best Actor in a Musical for Bertie Carvel.

Ten-year-old Ms Worthington-Cox broke another record as well by becoming the youngest ever winner of an Olivier.

Other winners at the Royal Opera House included Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller, who jointly won Best Actor for their role in Danny Boyle's Frankenstein, and Ruth Wilson was awarded Best Actress for the title role in Anna Christie.
