Lucy-Mae's sweet success in Mr Stink

Reporter: David Upton
Lucy-Mae Beacock was just nine when chosen to play Matilda in the RSC production of Matilda the Musical in London's West End.
Despite being born with spina bifida, she landed the hugely prestigious role but her world nearly came crashing down when she was also diagnosed with scoliosis.
An operation in the US was successful and Lucy-Mae is back to singing and dancing in David Walliams’s Mr Stink which comes to Bolton over the summer as part of a national tour.
Lucy-Mae plays Chloe Crumb, a 12-year-old who invites homeless Mr Stink and his dog, Duchess, to move into her family's shed.
It’s at the Albert Halls August 20–23.
