A schoolgirl got the Thrill-er her life when she was unveiled as the millionth person to watch the Michael Jackson tribute show in the West End.

Channelle Koroglu from South Croydon, was called up on stage to mark the occasion, which also coincided with the shows fifth anniversary.

The Selsdon Primary School pupil was invited up on stage to meet the cast of the musical, which celebrates the King of Pop's biggest hits.

She was then presented with a millionth customer golden ticket plaque, a copy of the sold-out limited edition Official Michael Jackson Opus and the entire back catalogue of Michael Jackson CDs.

Her collection, which also include a range of Thriller-Live merchandise is worth more than £450 and weighed in at a whopping 12kg.

The official Michael Jackson Opus is the only new publication approved and endorsed by Michael Jackson's estate and has over 400 pages of never before seen photos. It also has heartfelt essays written by those who knew the King of Pop best.

Channelle was attending the show with her mum Samantha.

A big fan of Jackson's music, Channelle wore a sequinned MJ-style Fedora hat to the show which she had owned for three years.

She said: "This is a really great birthday present, I am seven next week.

"I loved all of the show, all expect for the scary zombies in Thriller."
