Idris Elba and Stormzy at Newham Hospital

Idris Elba and Stormzy Surprised Hospital Patients by Dressing as Santa

Idris Elba and Stormzy have slowly become best buddies over the past few weeks, attending events together and generally making the world a better place. On Thursday, the pair took a day out of their busy schedules to dress up as Santa and surprise patients at Newham Hospital, delivering gifts to children. The East London hospital tweeted a picture of the two acting as secret Santa for the day, with excited patients and parents also tweeting the two as "proper lovely fellas."

Idris, who is from the borough of 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."

Stormzy hasn't said anything about the day yet, probably because he's too busy plotting his next random act of kindness!
