The 10-year-old co-star of the hit musical Matilda has become the youngest person to win a top theatre award.

Eleanor Worthington-Cox is one of the four actresses who play the role of Matilda in the stage version of Roald Dahl's famous book.

Eleanor said: "It's pretty cool - and scary - but also awesome."

In total, Matilda won more awards than any other show ever has - a record-breaking seven prizes.
