Stormzy and Idris Elba spread Christmas cheer
IDRIS ELBA and Stormzy donned Father Christmas suits while visiting children in two London hospitals to deliver presents yesterday.
The Luther actor, 45, and Big For Your Boots grime star, 24, said they wanted to give back to the community by doing the rounds of the wards.
Elba said: ‘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.’
The pair visited east London’s Whipps Cross Hospital and Newham Hospital, which is in the borough where Elba was born.
They beamed as they posed with hospital workers and patients, who they decided were all on Santa’s nice list. One boy’s father said it was ‘great to see two mega stars taking time out to dress up for our son’.
