X-Factor stars including winner Joe McElderry, Stacey Solomon and Jedward brought smiles of joy to young patients at Yorkhill Children’s Hospital earlier today when they made a surprise visit.
The X-Factor finalists took time out of their busy schedules while on tour in Glasgow to spend some time visiting the wards and meeting patients.
Shona Cardle, Chief Executive of Yorkhill Children’s Foundation who arranged the visit, said: “We are very grateful to the X-Factor finalists for coming to the hospital today. They created such a buzz of excitement and the children were over the moon to meet some of their idols.”
Jamie Redfern, General Manager of Yorkhill Paediatrics, said: “It is amazing to see the look of delight on the children’s faces when they meet stars in person. Today was no exception and the X-Factor stars absolutely made the day of many sick children.”
