Stormzy Idris Elba Father Christmas

Merry Christmas!

Stormzy and Idris Elba dressed up as father Christmas and surprised children at a London hospital. 

The superstar pair, who are good friends, delivered presents to patients at Newham University Hospital.

They reportedly made their way around the wards full of young children and posed for pictures, as they handed out Christmas presents.

“Thank you so much to our amazing secret Santas @idriselba and Stormzy for visiting Rainbow ward today. You made our day!” tweeted the hospital after the visit.

Idris Elba told Evening Standard that his aim was to “bring a smile to the children who are unwell”.

“I always wanted to give back in this way, to Children’s Hospitals,” he added.

“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.” 

Meanwhile, Stormzy and Idris Elba recently attended a Christmas party together at a London club, alongside their respective partners Maya Jama and Sabrina Dhowre.
