JLS have made a surprise visit to Birmingham Children's Hospital.

The award winning boy band turned up on a cancer ward to present stunned patients with festive gifts.

The surprise visit came just a week after the band re-launched the JLS Foundation in support of Cancer Research UK.

Over the next two years the JLS Foundation will raise money for the charity for research into cancers affecting children, teenagers and young adults aged 0-24.

We met some amazingly brave young people today and it's been fantastic to see what incredible work is going on behind the scenes right now at Birmingham Children's Hospital and across the country to help keep more and more of these children alive.

The children were completely star-struck. It was great to see their faces and watch Christmas come early here in Birmingham.

JLS are now rallying their army of followers on Twitter to raise vital funds.
