A HOLLYWOOD star and grime giant brought festive cheer to poorly kids spending Christmas in hospital.

Idris Elba and Stormzy delivered presents to patients in the Acorn Ward at Whipps Cross Hospital, Leytonstone, to brighten up the festive season.

The mega stars spent time talking to children, parents and staff at Whipps and Newham hospitals on Thursday, December 14.

Mr Elba, who comes from Newham, said: “I always wanted to give back in this way, to children’s hospitals.

"With a 15-year-old daughter and three-year-old son myself, I can only imagine the anguish and maybe even fear these children and their parents are experiencing.

“This visit was just a moment for me to hopefully bring a smile to the children who are unwell, in hospital and away from the comfort of their homes during the Christmas period.”
