The Farlingaye School student achieved 8 and 7 grades in English and history respectively, with Milo saying: "The hard work has paid off, which is really nice.

"I'm very relieved as it means I can complete the A-levels that I wanted to do - history, English language, psychology and politics."

Despite his young age, the Woodbridge youngster has already carved out a very successful career in the acting world.

He started going to a drama club after enjoying a school play when he was younger, which led to him being signed for an agency.

"I love acting," he said. "You get to go to some amazing places, meet some amazing people.

"It's fantastic, I love it."

Milo is now flying to the south of France for a well earned holiday with his family.
