The pair posed for pics with patients and staff and Idris spoke to the Newham Recorder about the reason for the visit.

Idris explained, "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."

Whipps Cross Hospital and Newham Hospital were the destination for the Secret Santas and they rerally did put smiles on so many faces.

20 month old Derek Duncan was one of the youngsters who got to meet the stars and his dad said, “What a surprise! Great to see two mega stars taking time out to dress up as Santa and bringing gifts for our son – a treasured memory. Thank you Newham Hospital.”

What a start to the festive season.
