The awards raised money for Children in Crisis, a charity founded by the Duchess of York which helps some of the world's most disadvantaged children.

Prodigy of the Year

It was a tough decision, but talented musician Nicola Benedetti was named overall Prodigy of the Year.

She said: "I didn't expect to win an award at all so to get two is brilliant!

The 14-year-old added: "The whole evening has been very exciting and I even bumped into Graham Norton in the corridor. My mates will be so jealous!"
