For one lucky Thriller - Live fan attending the show's fifth anniversary last night, it was a night she will never ever forget! Michael Jackson super fan, six-year-old Channelle Koroglu from South Croydon, discovered she was the one millionth customer to see the show in the West End.

Chanelle was called on stage during the show to meet the cast, and was presented with a millionth customer golden ticket plaque, a copy of the stunning, sold-out limited edition, The Official Michael Jackson Opus, the entire back catalogue of Michael Jackson CDS, and a fantastic collection of Thriller - Live merchandise.

Worth more than £450 and weighing in at a whopping 12kg, beautifully hand-bound in black leather, The Official Michael Jackson Opus is the only new publication approved and endorsed by the Estate of Michael Jackson and has more than 400 pages of never-before-seen photographs plus personal, heartfelt essays written exclusively by those who knew Michael best.

The cast of the show perfoming last night, which marked the start of its fifth year at the Lyric Theatre, including American Idol finalist Trenyce Cobbins, Haydon Eshun, former lead singer of boyband Ultimnate Kaos, and Eshan Gopal as the young Michael Jackson, signed show posters to add to Channelle's boxed Michael Jackson Opus.

Chanelle, who attends Selsdon Primary School in South Croydon, was attending the show with her mother, Samantha for the very first time. Proudly sporting a sequinned MJ-style Fedora hat that she has owned for three years, she said: "This is a really great birthday present - I'm 7 next week.I loved all the show well, all except for the scarey zombies in Thriller!"
