IT IS not every day that you get to win a coveted film award and meet one of your heroes.

But for Florence Pugh that day came yesterday when she picked up the breakthrough trophy at the Evening Standard Film Awards.

The 20-year-old could not contain her excitement as she meet Sir Bob Geldof at the glittering ceremony in Claridge's.

The daughter of restaurateur Clinton Pugh and sister to Game of Thrones actor Toby Sebastian, has also named as a 'Breakthrough Brit' by BAFTA this year.

The former St Edward's School pupil is set to hit the big screen in the UK once more next year as she stars in the highly-anticipated 'Lady Macbeth'.
