Olivier Awards 2016 Rundown

Last night, the annual Olivier Awards ceremony took place at the Royal Opera House in London and they celebrated an incredible 40th anniversary. The ceremony is available to watch in full on ITV3 tonight starting around now (but I’ve got in on record so I can watch it at a more reasonable hour) and will presumably be on the ITV Hub soon after, along with the highlights which were shown last night, but for now, this is literally a run-down of all the winners.
