West End success Matilda the Musical has swept the boards at the Olivier Awards with its "four little miracles" in the title role sharing the limelight and the gongs.

The girls, Cleo Demetriou, Kerry Ingram, Sophia Kiely and Eleanor Worthington-Cox, were named joint winners of the Best Actress in a Musical award.

One of the girls - 10-year-old Eleanor made history becoming the youngest ever winner of an Olivier.

She said her win was "pretty cool" and said her last prize was a "little silver plastic medal" for athletics at school.

Kerry said she was "mind-blown" by the success and Cleo said winning the award was "a million times bigger" than the audience reaction at the end of each show.

The bash, the biggest night in theatreland, properly known as the 2012 Olivier awards with Mastercard, was hosted by Michael Ball and Imelda Staunton and shown on a big screen in Covent Garden.
